Host and futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews special guest Evangelos Simoudis, technologist, investor and author of the new book Transportation Transformation: How Autonomous Mobility Will Fuel New Value Chains (2020). 

The takeaway is that new mobility will unfold over the next twenty years, in different speeds depending on the savvy of city governments. The future is multimodal in various ways, but will demand coming up with--and embracing--new business models, whether you are involved with public transport, the automotive industry, or ride sharing startups.
