Major changes are imminent in the mobility sector. With autonomous and networked vehicles, aerial drones, hyperloops, hydrogen, electric and hybrid drives, a number of new technologies are available to radically change our mobility habits.
But where the journey will go in the future and which technologies will ultimately prevail seems unclear. At the same time, the aim is to reduce CO2 emissions and the consumption of energy and space through streets and parking lots; All of this against the background of increasing traffic volumes and the goal of enabling mobility for everyone. What cultural changes will this development process trigger? What will be the future role of public transport system and how will it change people’s usage behavior?
ACADEMIA SUPERIOR and Die Fabrikanten from Linz organized a panel discussion with representatives of the Upper Austrian mobility industry on these questions. Christine Haberlander, chairwoman of ACADEMIA SUPERIOR, comments: “There is no such thing as ‘one’ solution. In the province of Upper Austria, the discussion must be openly in order to find a vision for Upper Austria’s mobility in the year 2040/50”.
Representatives of FACC AG, voestalpine AG, Fronius International GmbH, Energieinstituts an der JKU Linz, KTM Technologies GmbH, Miba eMobility GmbH, FH Oberösterreich, ÖAMTC OÖ und Stern Holding GmbH took part in the discussion.
