- June 10: Enabling Mobility as a Service
Mobility as a Service and the new combined mobility paradigmUrbanization is progressing unstoppably. Already today, more people live in cities than in rural areas; by 2050, two thirds of the world's population will be city dwellers. This will further increase the mobility demands – with serious consequences for air quality and quality of life. Without a radically new thinking, global transport and the associated CO2 emissions will increase by 70 percent by the middle of this century. Therefore, the big task is to make mobility smarter and more efficient. ZF is working on the “Next Generation Mobility” with a variety of technical solutions. Reorganizing mobility instead of banning it: At the UITP, ZF Friedrichshafen AG presents its comprehensive approach to the future of mobility, with a particular focus on the commercial vehicle and transportation segment. Based on the industry's broadest technology and product portfolio for driveline and chassis technology as well as for active and passive safety technology, ZF aligns itself strategically as a systems supplier for "Next Generation Mobility" requirements. Resulting from this, the company presents efficient solutions for the future along the entire transportation chain: From bus to train, from people mover to e-bike.
