Futurized - thought leadership on the future

Gig Mobility

March 30, 2021

Ryan Green, CEO & co-founder, Gridwise, interviewed by host Trond Arne Undheim, futurist, investor, and author.

In this conversation, we talk about whether gig mobility services (MaaS) become the standard for how to move in cities? What does the future of driver intelligence look like? We discuss the emerging market size and key verticals  such as transportation, city government, real estate, and financial services. We cover disruptive forces and barriers such as COVID-19, security, data protection, and IP. I ask Ryan about the exciting startups he sees in the space and we discuss the next decade's autonomy, data sharing, and mobility-as-a-service adoption.

My takeaway is that gig mobility is becoming the standard for how to move in cities. We are moving into a period with a hybrid fleet of various degrees of human and autonomous driving enabled. The quest for data and the question of who owns it, will also hit transportation. Being a connector between different mobility services is an interesting space to be in, a role one would have expected national, regional and city governments to occupy, but now becoming a battleground for large mobility players as well as emerging startups. Are we at the cusp of the truly smart city? Just maybe but there's going to be dumb infrastructure challenges remining for some years to come.
