Digitizing and Transforming Mobility Systems: Lessons from the Detroit Region

Since its inception at Davos in January 2017, the Seamless Integrated Mobility System (SIMSystem) project has challenged the present set of transforming technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in its promise to deliver impact for all. In June 2018, the World Economic Forum chose the Detroit region to pilot the concepts behind the integration of disparate mobility modes.

Beyond all else, the pilot demonstrated that the power of data rallies across sectors, interests and operating models. In a world that still suffers deeply from socioeconomic disparities, persisting racial segregation, a profound gender gap and lack of access to core services such as healthcare and education, the potential for improving the state of the world via data-driven technologies has never been greater.
