Doug Vining Combining exponential technologies

Re-enforcing our theme that it's the combinatorial nature of emerging technologies that gives them the power to create exponential change, comes this story about a bus developed by Local Motors. It is mainly 3D-printed, driverless of course, and uses artificial intelligence to talk to passengers. That's mobility as a service, coming soon to a city near you!

Neil Jacobsohn Electric cars could replace most of today's vehicles

Will eletric cars take off? The skeptics tell us that our love affair with fossil fuels will continue for decades. But perhaps not! Read this study from MJT that shows that even today, the level to which electric vehicles have developed means that almost all our driving needs could be met today.

Doug Vining The future of mobility

Here's an interesting article on urban mobility in 2030, by McKinsey&Company, based on their report.

McKinsey provides several models for the future, all of them disruptive. That's the key - disruption is certain.
