There are more than 1.2 billion cars in the world, we make more than 100 thousand flights per day, hours are spent every day commuting from work to home, from school to malls, making us the most mobile generation ever.But the opportunities come with threats. That's why so many countries and companies focus more and more on so-called "smart mobility" - developing solutions for faster and more convenient transportation that would reduce the pollution and time spent commuting, as well as will make delivering goods more efficient and sustainable.
