Dialogues that made us smarter
We participated in this year’s IAA Mobility in Munich with one clear goal: we wanted to listen. Because it interests us what moves the citizens of Munich and other international cities. Or rather: What doesn't move them in the truest sense of the word. Because mobility in urban structures and beyond is facing a necessary change due to rising population and increased traffic volumes.
Rapid chargers at heart of new EV hub in Somerset
Working in partnership with North Somerset Council, Yunex Traffic (the new name for Siemens Mobility’s Intelligent Traffic Solutions business), has installed and commissioned two rapid charging units for a new electric vehicle (EV) charging hub in Portishead, Somerset.
With two 50kW rapid DC charging units serving four parking bays, the hub forms part of Revive, the dedicated charging network for the West of England, for which Yunex Traffic has installed more than 70 EV chargers for charge points across the South West region. The rapid chargers are fast and accessible, typically enabling EV drivers to charge their vehicles in just 30 to 60 minutes.

This shows how Yunex Traffic creates intelligent connections for a more efficient infrastructure, more environmentally friendly mobility and more livable cities.
Smart answers for new challenges
“No private car can compete with that.”
We talk to Henrik Falk, CEO of Hamburger Hochbahn AG, about the role of mass transit in the livable city of the future, the success of the “Elektrobus” initiative, and the effot his company is putting into the development of autonomous mini buses.
“Road mobility is going to be safer and more mixed.”
Oliver Schmerold, CEO of the Austrian Motoring Club (ÖAMTC), talks to us about decreasing CO2 emissions, highly automated aircraft for private passenger transport, and possible solutions to structural public transport problems in rural areas.
Automated road traffic: “Also a matter of will.”
What are the psychological factors influencing mobility behavior? What role will humans adopt in the future of automated and connected road traffic? Prof. Dr. Marcel Hunecke from the University of Applied Sciences & Arts in Dortmund answers these questions.
Traffic control systems in Angola: Like a phoenix rising from the ashes
By leveraging its location at the intersection of two trans-African transport corridors, Angola plans to become an important logistics hub. A road network of close to 14,000 km is thus required. Key to this future: innovative traffic control systems.
The car of the future will be autonomous
Olivier Reppert, CEO of SHARE NOW, speaks to us about autonomous and fully electric vehicles as the foundation for a cleaner, safer and more cost-efficient future – and the key role car-sharing schemes play in the development of electric-powered mobility.
The question of (our) time
The field of mobility is governed by opposite priorities and concepts: On the one hand, the old credo that our civic liberties should include the right to unrestricted road use; on the other, the new ambition to reclaim urban space and transform it into a livable green ecosystem. The truth is to be found somewhere in between, for sure. But where exactly?
Transport policy: Singapore’s race for mobility solutions
Singapore is at the forefront of innovation in terms of land transport. In a new master plan it sets out a vision for land transport for the next 20 years in response to a growing population and land constraints, and greater expectations and demand for mobility.
Artificial intelligence: “Our computers were appallingly stupid”
Mario Sela, mobility expert at Bitkom, Germany's digital association, on the technological and social dimensions of artificial intelligence, the potential for optimization that AI offers for mobility, and the question of who should have the final say in automated traffic systems: the machine or the human?
Smart Cities: Individual solutions for cities
With rising population density, the world's megacities are facing ever more complex problems. This is precisely why they are also the best places for the concerted development of smart solutions for the city of the future. One example is the new Smart City Digital Hub at Hong Kong Science Park, where Mobility is one of the focus topics.
Digital road traffic: The transformative power of a true revolution
Markus Schlitt, CEO Yunex Traffic, speaks about the integration of the road into the Internet of Things, the new role of cities and towns in the context of increasing mobility digitalization, and the advantages that smart software-driven traffic engineering offers over conventional solutions.
Singapore: The world’s smartest nation by 2030?
Fred Kalt, Managing Director of Yunex Traffic in the Asia Pacific region, speaks about the ambitious urbanization project ‘Smart Nation Singapore’, the first fully integrated Digitalization Hub in this multi-cultural island nation - and the question whether South-East Asia could become the birthplace of the future of mobility.
Smart, smarter, smartest
A pioneering mass transit provider, a car-sharing company, and a motoring club – as different the viewpoints of our guest authors may be, they all share one conviction: The outcome of the imminent mobility revolution will be also a question of the technologies used, in the vehicles as well as in any auxiliary systems.
Q&A: Markus Schlitt, CEO Yunex Traffic. Markus Schlitt reveals which cities are trendsetters in mobility and why playing by their rules is the way to win.
