Disruptors: Trends and Technologies
Panel Session
Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.2

As modern transport becomes packed with sensors and internet and software systems, the distinguishing features and value proposition for vehicles is shifting more and more to the sophistication of interactive systems – in compliment to sound hardware engineering. Is this integration of more digitized vehicles changing the economics and profit margins in transport manufacturing? How might the participation of digital tech giants impact the sector? What changes to train, automotive and new modes of vehicles – such as consumer drones – are we likely to witness over the medium term?

Key moments

The invention of the car changed the world. Now has come the time when technology will once again change the world for the better and, for that, a public-private partnership is necessary.
Sergey Kogogin
An autonomous transportation and multimodal fusion only work if public authorities and private companies work together in a similar manner.
