Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is a way to help people understand their mobility solutions before they go somewhere. This is enabled by combining transportation services from public and private transportation providers through a unified gateway that creates and manages trips.
For example, a customer plans to show that the user can get from one destination to another by using train/bus/taxi combination. The user then chooses their preferred trip based on cost, time, and convenience.
According to Accenture, by 2030 the revenue from mobility services—businesses ranging from digital car-sharing and ride-hailing to autonomous driving—is expected to grow to nearly 1.2 trillion euros.
Here are the 3 trends in mobility as service next year, according to Adweek:
1. Autonomous vehicles technology will continue to be the hottest topic:
There are many players are in the market, including tech giants Google, Apple; traditional auto manufactures Ford, Nissan; ride-share platforms Lyft and Uber.
Next year, many companies will demonstrate what they have in this field. For example, in-car audio brand Clarion plans to pitch its newest autonomous technology at CES that relies on cameras.
2. 5G Internet connection:
Mobility can only happen when the machines can talk to each other, and 5G will help everything operating on wireless networks, and that includes both smart cars and smartphones.
3. Electronic scooters:
Believe it or not, scooters are getting popular! Big cities like Los Angels and San Francisco have been paying a lot of attention on electronic scooters. It could be really popular in the cities as another tool when transportation.
Parksen would like to join the parking revolution in the Mobility-as-a-Service industry. We are so happy that MaaS is happening fast! We will continue to partner with companies such as we just do with RedCab, so that we could work together to enter the new mobility-as-a-service age!
