Transportation: Smart, Low-carbon Transport Opens up the Mobile Third Space
In 2030, the transport system will see innovations across many different dimensions. Vehicles using green energy and controlled by autonomous driving technology will provide us with a mobile third space. Electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft will make emergency rescue faster, reduce the costs of delivering emergency medical supplies, and may even change how people commute. Mobility solutions will be efficient, customized, and shared, meaning that vehicles will be used much more consistently and travel will become greener.
All of these will require secure and stable autonomous driving algorithms; cost-effective, reliable sensors; high-speed, stable space-air-ground integrated networks; and a central brain with massive computing power for traffic management. These technologies will be indispensable for developing connected, autonomous, shared, and electric vehicles that deliver a low-carbon transport experience.
