Welcome to Deloitte CES Asia Smart Mobility & Smart Connectivity Forum

12 June 2019, Shanghai

Deloitte invites you to explore how advanced technologies reshape mobility @ CES Asia

Against the backdrop of mobile internet, artificial intelligence and escalating commuting needs, Deloitte is teaming up with CES Asia for the third consecutive year to present an exciting series of six panels on 12 June in Shanghai under the theme "Smart Mobility and Connectivity". Senior corporate executives and thought leaders will gather at the event for a cross-sector confluence of ideas, mapping out a mobility blueprint for tomorrow.  Together, they will explore the changes and opportunities that the maturing of advanced technologies will bring to smart commuting systems, user experiences and future cities that will be built by companies in the ecosystem.

Today, advances in technology are affecting nearly every aspect of our lives. From healthcare to education to retail, technology is expanding choice, lowering cost, transforming customer experiences, upending business models, and changing how we engage with and value brands. When it comes to transportation and mobility, advances in powertrains and batteries, safety and connected and autonomous technologies will free humans from the chore of driving.

What changes will there be on the journey from point A to point B?

Will future vehicles inspired by autonomous driving and smart connectivity remain similar to current ones in form, or will they develop into diminutive multipurpose spaces as an extension of our lives? Within such spaces, users are set to enjoy customized services corresponding to their journey distance, and an experience integrated with their daily routines in which office workers can engage in multi-party video conferences while on the move, students can pursue augmented reality learning while travelling, and families can schedule activities using in-vehicle control panels. Scenes from sci-fi films are likely to gradually become a reality.

Industry stakeholders including carmakers, internet businesses, auto parts suppliers, service providers and urban transport managers have started to look at future mobility models. Users and their daily needs are the central concerns of these reflections as stakeholders figure out how adjustments, multi-party integration, advanced technologies and machine learning can be used to introduce services of greater relevance to users' daily routines and revolutionize the commuting experience. At 11 am on 12 June, Deloitte will assemble a panel of experts in user experience, creative design, new automobile manufacturing and telematics onstage at CES Asia to analyze the blind spots in commuting service development and embark on an out-of-the-box exploration of the endless possibilities advanced technologies can bring to users' mobility experience.

Deloitte invites you to explore future smart cities @ CES Asia

More than 1,000 smart city pilot projects are ready for or under construction worldwide, and China is home to about 500 of them, the largest number of smart city pilot projects of any country with great space for further growth. However, despite rapid advances, some issues remain unresolved, including unclear strategic goals, inadequate technology implementation and poor execution. To address these issues, government institutions are expected to collaborate with private companies on multimodal concepts that will create a smart, innovative and sustainable urban environment for citizens.

In smart city construction, government institutions are taking the lead, with private companies the main force and a low level of public participation. Most discussions about smart cities focus on infrastructure: big data and information technology used to better manage urban assets such as public transport, wastewater systems and roads. But true smart cities must encompass more than just infrastructure and city services. A real smart city will apply technology to the full, making every aspect of the city smarter, significantly reducing resource wastage and giving the public more time to enjoy better lives.

How should advanced technologies be applied to build truly smart cities? How should government, the private sector and the public work together? Deloitte invites you to a forum at 3 p.m. on 12 June to explore these issues with experts from the private and public sectors, as well as take a closer look at the network of contributors needed to build smart cities.
