What Innovative technologies have been presented at Movin’On Summit?

Data and intelligence represent both the solutions to and sources of concern regarding most transportation challenges. When it comes to determining who owns the data, how to protect it and its most effective uses, the answers are not always clearly defined. As we approach 2021 — the target year for the implementation of the automated passenger car roadmap — questions arise about how these vehicles will interact with old-school, non-connected cars that will still be on the road. In order to find solutions to these challenges, we must, as mobility stakeholders, ask the right questions. Here are a few of the ones we have addressed this spring in Montreal. Be part of the answer.


What innovations can be created using a readily available ocean of data?

What approaches can we take to accelerate the deployment of autonomous vehicles:

Targeted proprietary research or open source? And what lessons can stakeholders learn from previous disruptive mobility technologies? Here are some of the thought-provoking, action-driven working sessions under the Innovative technologies theme:


  • Engie – Smart charging, storage and the evolution of consumer attitudes toward mobility and energy providers
  • Oracle – The mind in the Mmachine: the holistic application of AI-enhanced business tools for improving multiple mobility domains
  • Open an Agile Smart Cities (OASC) – MIM’s the word: scaling urban mobility services for the global market by deploying minimal interoperability mechanisms
  • Plateforme automobile (PFA) and PSA Group – The wide-ranging consequences of the driverless car: a concrete appraisal of AI’s impact on the future of mobility, presented by PSA Group
  • Thales – The seamless city: unleashing the power of cohesive, coordinated, on-demand multimodal mobility


How can we meet data challenges: owning, protecting and valorizing data?

And what is the updated roadmap for autonomous vehicles and how do we rebuild trust? Here are some of the speakers who took the stage to address these key issues:


As an aerospace engineer, rocket scientist and pilot, Anita Sengupta is a veteran of the space program. She has worked for NASA and Virgin Hyperloop before co-founding Airspace Experience Technologies (ASX), an electrified autonomous VTOL urban aerial mobility technology company.



As the Director of Smart Columbus, the smart-city connector Jordan Davis is leading a complex strategy involving public-private partnerships.
