How Technology is Changing the Face of Transportation Ecosystem
Much of this technology has been created specifically to serve a customer need – automatic stopping features in cars, for instance, that help to prevent accidents. Other technology has been pulled from other segments of business and applied to transportation for convenience, like built-in Bluetooth technology. Finally, some technology has been implemented to address things like environmental concerns and the effects of environmental pollution.
The effects of technology on the transportation ecosystem.
Here are some of the most impactful technologies that have disrupted or changed the transportation ecosystem, as well as new transportation technology that might be seen in 2019.
1. Autonomous/self-driving vehicles
Companies like Google and others have been experimenting with and developing self-driving car technology for years. While it still hasn’t been developed enough to function in place of person-driven vehicles, the technology has the power to change parts of the transportation ecosystem, including fewer accidents by both personal and commercial vehicles. It also has implications for the trucking industry, as self-driving trucks wouldn’t need to stop en route in order to let drivers reset, allowing for faster, cheaper shipping. Of course, the downside would be a loss of transportation jobs.
2. Alternatives to owning vehicles
Technology has made it easier for people to opt out of owning a car and simply use on demand. Apps like Getaround let users rent out someone else’s car for short periods of time, using only their smartphone. This has the possibility to reduce gas emissions and be more environmentally friendly, as more people move to the idea of car-sharing or communal car access.
3. Hybrid and electric vehicles
Hybrid and electric vehicles have been around for many years, but the technology continues to advance, allowing car manufacturers like Tesla to offer cars that aren’t just eco-friendly, but also high-performance, which was lacking in earlier models and is what many car drivers still want in their personal vehicle.
4. Connected vehicles/smart cars
Bluetooth isn’t the only way that cars are connected anymore. More and more cars are being equipped with technology that allows cars to digitally understand where both infrastructure and other cars are on the road to enable safer conditions.
