The Future of Smart Mobility with Dr. Carlo Van de Weijer
By The Mission
“Public transport always comes with a cost and always comes with a large subsidy.” — Dr. Carlo Van de Weijer Dr. Carlo Van de Weijer serves as director of the Strategic Area Smart Mobility at Eindhoven University of Technology. With an extended background in the high-tech and automotive industry, he is familiar with the always-changing world of logistics and transportation. Since the advent of the first motorized vehicle in 1879, the auto industry has faced constant change and disruption. Today, the logical next step for cars is automation. Dr. Carlo sheds some light on the digitization of vehicles and sees a future in which mobility services will greatly change public transport as we know it. “One of the most important things missing with self-driving cars is, what is the problem that you are solving with the new kind of system? It is a fantastic way of transporting yourself, but will it be better than the current system?” On this episode, Mission Producer Austin Craig sits down with Dr. Carlo to highlight future trends within mobility, from electric bikes to self-driving vehicles, and their impact on society. — P.S.
