The world is eagerly awaiting for the arrival of smart mobility. What shape will it take in Japan? In the rural area, providing cost-efficient and convenient mode of transportation for the aging and fragile population is the key challenge. In the urban area, reduction in congestion, pollution and redundant space and hardware are the key issues for smart mobility to solve. As a country with some of the strongest incumbents in providing mobility, Japan has a large stake in taking a leadership in shaping how smart mobility will look like in the coming years.
In this panel, we like to discuss how smart mobility is expected to help solve Japan's unique issues and how manufacturers are working with new technology entrants to bring about the era of new mobility.
