As my presentation or panel at a given industry event gives way to a Q&A, I can be reasonably sure that at least one of the questions will be on sustainable mobility.
It wasn’t always like this. A few years ago, the burning topics of the day were more explicitly tech-centric and niche – IoT-infused urban infrastructure, connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), drones. While these topics still do come up, it is equally clear to me that a systems mindset has taken root that is compelling all of us to appreciate urban mobility – the movement of people and goods – for the massively complex emergent phenomenon it is. This positions us all to envision and deliver more holistic and impactful evolutions of infrastructure.
