The Future of Mobility - 29th July
The transportation routes of most countries will experience bottlenecks and ultimately fail over the next few decades. The problems are endless in every country: crumbling infrastructure, lack of renewable energy strategies, and urban centres that are buckling under the weight of their commuting residents. In this landscape, autonomous cars, drones, and new modes of transportation are on the verge of completely redesigning cities - not only the way we move, but also how we work and live! The focus of the Hello Tomorrow Bangalore event will be on the future of transportation with emphasis on clean transportation and on India’s ability to leapfrog transport technology.
