Frost & Sullivan's Intelligent Mobility Summit is an annual complimentary premier forum to spark ideas about the automotive industry's engagement with the future.

14th Inteligent Mobility Summit Topics

SAN ANTONIO — The automotive industry accounts for nearly a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. As countries work to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, initiatives are now seeking to decarbonize transport. Beyond zero-emission vehicles and carbon-neutral manufacturing, long-term roadmaps embrace a more holistic vision of sustainability that spans the entire value chain. In a virtuous cycle, software-defined vehicles (SDVs) of the future will support an in-vehicle experience that is productive, immersive, and personalized for vehicle occupants while creating new revenue opportunities for stakeholders across the mobility value chain.

Frost & Sullivan’s Intelligent Mobility Summit is an annual complimentary premier forum to spark ideas about the automotive industry’s engagement with the future. The 14th edition will be hosted online on September 7-8. It will feature thought-provoking panel discussions, interactive sessions with opinion makers, and exclusive networking opportunities. This year’s theme, “Towards a Sustainable Future,” will deep dive into the trends, growth opportunities, and challenges that come with the sustainability transformation.

“The mobility industry has been in a difficult transition period for over a decade. The environmental impact must be minimized for the industry to be sustainable. Due to impending internal combustion (IC) engine ban dates and increasing carbon taxes, lower carbon emissions are likely to emerge as the single most determinant factor of profitability in the next decade,” said Vivek Vaidya, Associate Partner and Global Client Mobility Leader at Frost & Sullivan. “Furthermore, the industry must also cater to changing consumer needs by providing mobility solutions rather than mere automotive products. And finally, for the mobility companies themselves to be sustainable, they need to improve their profitability by adopting continuous cash flow business models that address the opportunities across the entire life cycle of the product rather than merely the sales of the vehicle.”

A series of curated panel discussions will delve into the automotive industry’s evolution towards an economically and environmentally coherent future. Key agenda topics will spotlight:

  • The revolution of cars as smartphones on wheels with software-defined vehicles.
  • Decarbonization driving sustainable mobility through zero-emission vehicles.
  • The roadmap to 2030 with trends in commercial trucking.
  • The transformation from Mobility-as-a-Service to Lifestyle-as-a-Service.

The panel includes top industry firms and will feature leaders from the automotive industry.
