Three important changes in the transportation business are pushing technology forward right now, said (energy scientist Amory) Lovins. Self-driving autonomous cars, which are already out there in test mode. Car sharing gaining popularity. And finally, the growing treatment of mobility as a service.
“Now those are starting to come together on your mobile device as public and private transport firms open up their coats so you can see where all the vehicles are and meld all of the offerings and pick the one you want,” said Lovins.
