Scope

The mobility of the Future is a worldwide phenomenon, which drives us in everyday life. It is a challenge not only in car manufacturing sector but additionally in e-mobility, smart cities, smart factories (Industry 4.0), smart logistics, social mobility, technological innovations, sustainability, multicultural development, Internet of Things sectors, etc.

The purpose of the “Mobility of the Future” conference is to discuss the next level of innovative technologies that will navigate industry and connectivity sectors in the future industrial, urban, social and sustainable development. The conference will additionally explore smart industrial innovations, approaching from all possible vectors – expand business models, smarter key technologies, new approaches to data analysis, rethink strategic planning, develop new opportunities, and identify challenges and its solutions, among others. This could encapsulate the future of Europe which could take this as an opportunity to lead the world into the new kind of digital transformation of industry and urbanism.

The IoT offers advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that reach beyond machine-to-machine communications and covers a variety of domains and applications. The interconnection of embedded devices is expected in many fields including Mobility and Intelligent Transport. In the light of the latest knowledge and scientific projects findings, the authors will present rigorous R&D trends in the given field.
