Mobility

Mobility is one of the most debated topics in 2019. The evolution of mobility is about finding better ways to move the world forward. It is about transforming the way millions of people travel every day by car, train and plane. To do this, innovation is at the heart of our model to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s mobility. But what does the mobility of the future mean? Who are its actors? And what impact it has on users and engineers? The blog #INCREDIBLENGINEERS answers all these questions in this special mobility report.
