Massachusetts institute of technology mobility initiative 2021
Mobility and transportation are in the midst of profound transformation with an unprecedented combination of new technologies (autonomy, electrification, and AI) meeting new and evolving priorities and objectives (decarbonization, public health, and social justice). And the timeframe for these changes – decarbonization in particular – is short in a system with massive amounts of fixed, long-life assets and entrenched behaviors and cultures.
The complexity of today’s mobility system calls for multiple levels of coordination and collaboration to overcome and shape the system’s pending challenges over both the short and long terms. At the first annual Mobility Vision event, we expect participants to roll up their sleeves and to actively engage in addressing the many challenges facing mobility today.
