The widespread deployment and the societal acceptance of smart mobility technologies depend not only on the maturity of the technology but also on the availability of a well-developed governance framework and the proper city planning to accommodate these evolving technologies. This means that smart mobility depends on a triad of complementary factors; technology, city planning and governance. This panel discussion addresses how government, city planners, and technologists can work together to respond to changes in people and cargo mobility systems and services.
