Automotive World Magazine – November 2020

Welcome to the November issue of Automotive World Magazine. This month we explore the importance of location data in facilitating the mobility of the future. HERE Technologies is emerging as a pioneer in this pivotal space, and its Chief Executive Edzard Overbeek reveals how location intelligence is helping organisations solve unprecedented challenges and powering innovations around Mobility as a Service, on-demand delivery and autonomous driving.

C-Suite insights also include Alain Visser, Chief Executive of the Geely-owned brand Lynk & Co. This industry disruptor has put peer-to-peer vehicle-sharing at the heart of its offering, and Visser believes the Airbnb model could reshape the wider automotive industry.

The first official design guidelines for pandemic-resistant self-driving shared vehicles are also on the way. Interiors that address the needs of society’s most vulnerable promise a step change in accessible mobility. Two UK organisations have developed what they hope will serve as a blueprint for safe personal mobility in a this new normal.
