eBook: Exploring the Seven Layers of the Mobility Ecosystem

A close examination of the trends and prospects of the mobility industry based on the seven layers of the mobility ecosystem.

This ebook breaks down the mobility ecosystem into seven distinct layers. It then closely examines the current trends and future prospects of these seven layers of mobility. These are:

  1. Vehicles
  2. Autonomous vehicles
  3. Autonomous driving
  4. Fleet operators
  5. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and in-ride experience
  6. Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS)
  7. Smart cities

The concept of mobility was first created to solve urban transportation challenges. Clearly, urban residents spend a significant part of their lives on transportation. The average one-way commute time in the United States reached an all-time high of 27.6 minutes in 2019, a 10% increase from 2006. As urban populations continue to rise, simply getting from one place to another can be physically and emotionally draining.

To make urban transportation more enjoyable, the mobility industry has been pushing forward three major transformations: electrification, automation, and servitization. With these transformations, a new wave of business models and have emerged, forming an interconnected ecosystem consisting of multiple layers of products and services. Some of the new business areas include electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS), Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platforms, and Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS).

This ebook shows how these transformations are impacting each of the seven layers of mobility and how new business models and services are created in the process.
