When Cars Can See – the Data Opportunity

Today’s vehicles are coming equipped with the most advanced, AI-enabled cameras that power advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). We’ve made cars into the ultimate mobile sensors; intelligent platforms that provide us with real-time insight into the world around us. As these sensors have evolved, new data opportunities have emerged.

Mobileye, the world-leader in camera-based ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology, will present the new horizon of ADAS and mapping-driven data. Whether predicting the city’s most dangerous intersections; automating the mapping of our roads and infrastructure; detecting real-time road conditions; or generating insights on traffic flow, pedestrians, and cyclists; the new wave of camera-based data unlocks new possibilities to cities, governments, utilities, and industry. We know the opportunities are endless, and we want to share them with you. Come join us in the conversation!

How to use data analytics to optimize on-demand transport

Through amassing hundreds of millions of anonymous data points daily we can create a repository of transit data which presents huge opportunities for transport planning, multi-modal integration and evolving consumer behaviour

Every day cities struggle with a long list of mobility challenges. As populations swell and infrastructure ages, commute times are ever-increasing, as is congestion.
During our September webinar with Intelligent Transport, we discussed what decision-makers need to make the most cost-efficient and effective data-driven for optimizing urban mobility and projects such as on-demand transport. 

KEY LEARNING POINTS

Real data is what a smart city needs

·    Riders benefit from convenient and seamless transit experiences, including both real-time and  near-real-time on-demand services

·    Operators can plan and manage their fleet with unmatched accuracy and cost-efficiency

·    Cities can introduce an innovative service to commuters, leverage dynamic route planning for near-real-time on-demand, increase ridership, reduce traffic congestion, and solve first- and last-mile challenges.

LA Metro: The Future of Public/Private Partnerships & How they can Accelerate Mobility Projects

P3s are not magic. They are not free money. But they can accelerate projects. Here’s how.

Los Angeles County’s unique position allows for a different perspective on the use of Public/Private Partnerships. While many agencies around the United States rely on P3s as a financing tool to build projects that wouldn’t get built otherwise, we look at P3s as an opportunity to accelerate projects already in the pipeline.

  • Understanding how fresh eyes under the correct commercial incentive structure and framework can breathe innovation and life into projects
  • How intelligent P3 planning can manage project cost and risk allocation with effective time management and project timelines
  • How LA Metro incentivize and provide value back to the private sector and how they incentivise talent

Partner Smarter, Not Harder

Smart cities are creating new mobility models and improving existing transportation systems that underpin our communities by harnessing data, applications and technology to improve the quality of life for citizens and visitors.

In Columbus, we’ve seen firsthand our most successful innovations are often the result of cooperation between government and the private sector. We know becoming a smart city is not just the responsibility of a government entity. The way forward in how we engage the private sector is to not think of it as a group of vendors or sponsors, but as a true partner with skin in the game. Join Jordan Davis, Director of Smart Columbus, for a conversation on Columbus’ case study for collaboration and how you can take our playbook back to your city or organization.

What you’ll learn:

  • Define differences as strengths. Understand the government’s strengths. Learn how to communicate where the value lies for the user and the city.
  • Demonstrate the value. Help businesses think differently about mobility. Create a living laboratory to create a space for new partnerships to grow and iterate.
  • Build coalitions and a playbook. Make room at the table for true partnership. Be open to sharing best practices and lessons learned with your peers and partners.

The Rise of Inclusive Micromobility

The debate on micromobility has been recently dominated by the safety challenges associated with large deployments of kick-scooters in urban areas against a background where there are no clear compliance and traffic law frameworks to regulate their use. Kickscooters operators demonstrated that the most active part of the population want an increased offering in micromobility. But one topic which has not been sufficiently addressed is how micromobility has the potential to transform the lives of people that would not be considered ‘active’ users and who are currently underserved. In this session we look at the rise of Inclusive Micromobility and how this will impact the way we all will move around in the city of the future.

4:00 - 4:20
LA Metro: The Future of Public/Private Partnerships & How they can Accelerate Mobility Projects

P3s are not magic. They are not free money. But they can accelerate projects. Here’s how.

Los Angeles County’s unique position allows for a different perspective on the use of Public/Private Partnerships. While many agencies around the United States rely on P3s as a financing tool to build projects that wouldn’t get built otherwise, we look at P3s as an opportunity to accelerate projects already in the pipeline.

  • Understanding how fresh eyes under the correct commercial incentive structure and framework can breathe innovation and life into projects
  • How intelligent P3 planning can manage project cost and risk allocation with effective time management and project timelines
  • How LA Metro incentivize and provide value back to the private sector and how they incentivise talent

Partner Smarter, Not Harder

Smart cities are creating new mobility models and improving existing transportation systems that underpin our communities by harnessing data, applications and technology to improve the quality of life for citizens and visitors.

In Columbus, we’ve seen firsthand our most successful innovations are often the result of cooperation between government and the private sector. We know becoming a smart city is not just the responsibility of a government entity. The way forward in how we engage the private sector is to not think of it as a group of vendors or sponsors, but as a true partner with skin in the game. Join Jordan Davis, Director of Smart Columbus, for a conversation on Columbus’ case study for collaboration and how you can take our playbook back to your city or organization.

What you’ll learn:

  • Define differences as strengths. Understand the government’s strengths. Learn how to communicate where the value lies for the user and the city.
  • Demonstrate the value. Help businesses think differently about mobility. Create a living laboratory to create a space for new partnerships to grow and iterate.
  • Build coalitions and a playbook. Make room at the table for true partnership. Be open to sharing best practices and lessons learned with your peers and partners.

The Rise of Inclusive Micromobility

The debate on micromobility has been recently dominated by the safety challenges associated with large deployments of kick-scooters in urban areas against a background where there are no clear compliance and traffic law frameworks to regulate their use. Kickscooters operators demonstrated that the most active part of the population want an increased offering in micromobility. But one topic which has not been sufficiently addressed is how micromobility has the potential to transform the lives of people that would not be considered ‘active’ users and who are currently underserved. In this session we look at the rise of Inclusive Micromobility and how this will impact the way we all will move around in the city of the future.

Infrastructure, Investment & Collaboration: Who is Going to Pay for the Future of E-Mobility?

Few stakeholders have taken responsibility for building out eMobility charging networks due to the uncertainties of the long-term business model and EV penetration rates. Assess where real value the value lies for the players (incl. utilities, OEMs, municipalities).

  • What might a city-led, future project for mobility look like and what steps must we undertake to get there?
  • Chicken & Egg: what are the first movers for a concerted and sustainable move towards electrification. How are we financing and what challenges should we expect?
  • Identifying the value provision for each part of the electric ecosystem. What do stakeholders want and what does a delivery roadmap look like?

Show Me the Money! From Subsidisation to Sustainable Revenue: The Investment & Business Models Underpinning Mobility Services

Despite some huge valuations and major IPOs, there’s yet to emerge a sustainable long-term business model for monetising mobility services. It’s time for that to change!

  • Look at the financial models underpinning mobility services (from e-hailing to micro mobility). How can operators turn a profit as everyone competes on price to secure market dominance?
  • Understanding the investor mindset: are B2G mobility models investable and what are the required deliverables for sustainable growth?
  • Look to adjacent revenue opportunities (i.e. deliveries, logistics, selling data to 3rd parties) to create a suite of complimentary commercial services
