What will it take to agree a gold standard for autonomous vehicle safety?

Industry players are coming together to jointly develop global reference solutions for self-driving safety challenges. The Autonomous forum has been pioneering a collaborative approach to autonomous vehicle (AV) development for the past two years, bringing together a community of players across the mobility ecosystem to establish safety standards and practices. Breaking down AV safety into […] Read More

Smart City Strategy Index: Vienna and London leading in worldwide ranking

In this 2019 edition of Roland Berger’s Smart City Index, we find two European cities, Vienna and London on top of the ranking. On average, however, it’s mainly Asian metropolises that demonstrate the most compelling Smart City strategies. General key findings are that there is still a lack of integration in strategy, and that central […] Read More

Passenger drones ready for take-off

Drone services are part of the future urban mobility solutions. They actually could be an attractive solution for places where the ground and underground are already saturated, and as the technology evolve, prove to be an affordable and efficient transportation mode. These projects cannot be led by one actor though, and strong collaboration will be […] Read More
