5G City and Sustainable Urban Mobility

In the future, urban transportation is expected to be electric, autonomous, and on-demand. Today, personal transportation is gradually transitioning into mobility as a service. By 2025, more than 1.2 billion vehicles globally are expected to be connected to their surroundings and/or to each other through either built-in or brought-in communications technology. This will allow cities, transportation and infrastructure to transmit real-time data for improved maintenance and greater operational efficiency and safety. Experts will discuss how 5G connectivity will be the key enabler.
