Featuring a mix of insights from both their own internal experts and recognized voices from across the transportation industry, the new guide provides practical strategies for anyone who’s interested in playing a vital role in shaping what the vehicles and infrastructure of our shared autonomous future will look like.

Within the comprehensive 174-page guide, readers can explore articles such as:

Transportation and mobility is one of the hottest sectors of the economy, one that is both growing rapidly in market size and whose technological advancements seem to occur at dizzying speeds. From new forms of mobility to new business models, we are being forced to rethink how we look at the future. With a multitude of new transport technologies popping up and aggressive young start-ups jockeying for position with industry stalwarts , it’s become abundantly clear that the old adage of planes, trains and automobiles is having to make way for scooters, hyperloops and helicopter taxis.

At the end of the day, intelligent transportation is far more than getting from A to B – it saves lives, connects worlds, and creates opportunities. As a solution provider, BlackBerry is actively working to address the challenges and the unintended consequences that come with them so we can all safely and securely realize the benefits of smart mobility.

It’s time we hit the road together. Join BlackBerry on the journey and get your free copy of The Road to Mobility at Booth #7515 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 7-10, 2020.
