How to address a trend that is overarching and embraces many distinct addressees and disciplines such as Smart Mobility? What is happening behind the scenes? Often labeled as Intelligent Mobility, Mobility-as-a-Service or Mobility 4.0, and understood as autonomous driving or intermodal traffic management, Smart Mobility has many faces and focus areas depending on local contexts and needs.
