Shaping the future of mobility
The mobility landscape is changing rapidly. Macrotrends like urbanization, the sharing economy, society’s changing values, as well as digitalization are shaping a new system of interconnected mobility solutions. Connected services and enhanced driver assistance functionality have been leading areas of technological progress in the last decade. Key evolutions include new driving technologies related to e-mobility and autonomous driving, and they will be enhanced through data-driven products, Car-2-X communication and sharing models.
In the transformation process, new successful solutions will offer flexibility and personalization in increasingly user-centric vehicle concepts that meet individual demands and usage patterns. New players are entering the market, both disrupting the mobility ecosystem creating new partnership opportunities.

The Sulzer presentation “Future of Parking” starts with an assessment of whether autonomous driving or car sharing solve the parking space problem. We will then have a look at the rapidly growing population and urbanization worldwide, concluding that parking in inner cities will become an even bigger issue than it is today.
Above all, we compare the estimated cost of mobility versus the cost for parking spaces and see that both expenses are becoming nearly similar in specific metropolitan regions.
Finally, we demonstrate ideas, innovations and start-ups regarding the parking issue and propose an idea for a Parking 4.0 solution. The focus is here on an integrated parking spot management based on IOTA, a Distributed Ledger Technology, which offers a solution for B2X, C2X and G2X. The idea is to connect parking spot seekers, business customers with parking spaces, automobile manufacturers and public institutions that manage parking spaces in order to offer more efficient use of available parking space.
