The study starts by explaining the dynamic of the push towards innovation in the powering of vehicles – increasingly through electrification. Running through the fast-evolving levels in the automation of vehicles, it continues by examining the pull of such external factors as energy efficiency, climate change and consumer concerns.
Together, these drivers are remodelling mobility as a service – at the service of manufacturers, consumers, the environment and social transformation.
The well-illustrated mapping of initiatives in new forms of mobility – with some one hundred projects in the three regions of North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific – is rounded off by detailed case studies of ten major players both in technology and in overall strategy.
The resulting raft of internal and external forces combined, coupled with the emergence of new logistics such as micromobility, is rewriting the nature of the overall market. This is set to grow phenomenally across the globe, with Asia-Pacific in pole position.
- Shared micromobility fleet will reach over 105 million vehicles by 2030, according to IDATE DigiWorld. Composed mainly of bikes, the bulk of the vehicle fleet comes principally from the Asia-Pacific région (two-thirds of the global market).
- A global fleet of 47 million level 3 autonomous vehicles in 2030: this is the estimate of IDATE DigiWorld in its report on Mobility of the Future.

FTTH versus DOCSIS 4.0
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected entire sectors of our global economy. With working from home and social distancing becoming the new standard, the telecom sector appears to be a key accelerator in keeping our economies up and running. While broadband connectivity is now seen as a evident ‘facility’ in these times of crisis, new perspectives have emerged for telecom operators. At this time, most cable operators have deployed DOCSIS 3.0 in their country of operations. However, two trends have emerged for them. The issue is if it is more profitable to upgrade existing networks towards DOCSIS 3.1 or if it is wiser to gradually migrate towards full-fibre networks, given the throughput limitations of cable.
