“Smart cities of the future will only succeed if they have a robust and dynamic smart mobility infrastructure to support clean/green living for future generations. The reduction in individual vehicular carbon footprint will emerge as a pivotal objective for OEMs and other stakeholders. Additionally, with the advent of specialized autonomous vehicles, rapid transport corridors, digitally connected highways, and robotic parking lots, smart mobility as a space is set for disruption and innovation.”

Sustainable Urban Living and Smart Mobility

For India to build smart green cities, supercharging EV adoption rates, building intelligent transport networks, and incorporating smart fleet and vehicular management systems within city infrastructure are imperative. With over croresof cars on its roads, India is witnessing a rapid evolution towards smarter and greener vehicles, incorporating IoT, autonomous technology, digital connectivity, and electric or hydrogen-powered systems.

Public transport systems need exponential upgrades to mirror the ambitious goal of developing 100 smart cities that are clean and green. The current government has provided a conducive regulatory environment for stakeholders to invest in and develop key smart mobility enhancers such as a smart electrical grid, robust EV charging infrastructure, and IoT integration within vehicles.

The Future of Smart Mobility

As smart cities of the future evolve, the focus must be on creating a robust and dynamic smart mobility infrastructure that supports clean and green living for future generations. Reducing individual vehicular carbon footprints becomes a pivotal objective for OEMs and other stakeholders. The advent of specialized autonomous vehicles, rapid transport corridors, digitally connected highways, and robotic parking lots signals that smart mobility is set for disruption and innovation.

In the near future, we might see a more connected and intelligent transportation system. Electric buses with smart features, AI-enabled traffic management, and electric vehicles with advanced battery technologies are not just figments of imagination but inevitable realities. The smart mobility space is poised for disruption and innovation, and stakeholders must collaborate to navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities that lie ahead.

The integration of Smart Cities and advanced technologies is not merely a trend; it's a transformative force reshaping urban mobility. As we move towards sustainable urban living and smarter mobility, the strategic alliance between 5G, IoT, and surveillance technologies becomes the linchpin in creating cities that are not only connected but also safe, efficient, and environmentally conscious. The future of urban mobility is not just smart; it's a harmonious blend of innovation, connectivity, and sustainability.
