This week took place inOut, a key event on tomorrow’s mobility, at the Couvent des Jacobins Exhibition and Trade Centre in Rennes (France). French and international professionals debated the issues linked to the revolution in mobility and came together to discuss the latest innovations. Here are some of our favorite contents for technology and startup aficionados within this great event.
A WORLD TOUR OF NEW MOBILITY
Because new mobility goes beyond borders, inOut helped participants explore urban mobility projects developed on the other side of the globe. We checked these specific tech topics for you:
“Integration of autonomous vehicles within urban public transport: challenges and opportunities”. This workshop brought together experts from the industry and public sector to discuss the challenges and opportunities linked to the arrival of autonomous vehicles in our towns and cities.
