Mobility operating systems for smart cities can help boost economic growth, according to new research from Frost & Sullivan.
Mobility Operating System for Global Smart Cities, 2019 says that the solutions for monitoring and managing urban mobility are shifting from individual businesses towards comprehensive solutions for cities.
And mobility companies and technology providers will play an important role in helping cities get smarter with more connected technologies and customer data to help them grow faster.
“Growing concerns around mobility management are driving solution providers to support governments in developing smart city mobility operating systems,” said Abhishek Iyer, research analyst for mobility at Frost & Sullivan. “These systems can enhance operational efficiencies, monitor and manage city traffic, and offer greater mobility and connectivity to citizens across smart cities.”
The report says that OEMs and other organisations in the mobility sector can leverage growth by:
- The public and private sector working together to implement intelligent mobility operating systems;
- Using AI and big data analytics for historical demand-supply analysis and mobility optimisation;
- Implementing digital transaction platforms to open new revenue streams for cities; and
- Offering open access to city mobility data for citizens and businesses to enhance trust, transparency and engagement.
Iyer went on to explain that smart city mobility systems are comprised of four broad components: a city-wide communication network, a cloud-based data store, an intelligent command centre and cybersecurity.
“Success for future city mobility operating systems will depend on these components working in a harmonised manner,” he added.
