With V2X (Vehicle to Everything) enabled digital mobility experience, the future of pay-tech platforms in automotive. Major automotive brands (new entrants and established players) are seeking to establish themselves as the Apple of electric/autonomous mobility; A seamless customer experience with supporting closed platforms. Some are clearly moving in the right direction, while others continue to struggle in offering a seamless digital experience.
The future role of the car remains a significant challenge. Fuelling or charging a car or improving the car rental process offers many opportunities for smoothing existing customer experiences using existing payment, communication and automotive technologies, but disjointed competing platforms are slowing progress in this space. New technologies such as 5G, AI and the shift to electro mobility (and the acceleration of data generation by individual vehicles) will accelerate the complexity of these trends.
Forming a focused research initiative
In this workshop we explore the technology, platform and business model challenges to progress and map a research roadmap to unlock the value that modern mobility and intelligent vehicles offer. It presents an opportunity to network with your peers in industry and academia, to engage in future collaboration in support of this research roadmap and place your organization at the centre of the mobility-payments ecosystem.
The intent is to build a working consortium of stakeholders, business and researchers, who ‘stay together’ over the coming two years, to share and engage in this discovery and definition effort. We ‘learn and apply’ together. Ideally, we establish a core group that drive specific aspects, and a broader group that appreciate the shared knowledge and contribute as they can. We will run bi-annual workshops to advance our research programme.
Who should attend?
This is an invitation-only event for select senior leaders, business unit leaders, programme managers, Innovation leaders across the spectrum of the mobility and payment services value chain.
- Possible scenarios and value network(s)
- Prioritisation of challenges
- Action plan to address key challenges
