Punchcut Future of Mobility Journeys

  1. 1. ESTIMATED 
 TIME OF ARRIVAL The Future of Mobility | 15 January 2018
 EVOLVING. Like the mobile device manufacturers of the early 2000s, 
 car companies of today are being forced to radically rethink 
 their core offering, and they’re finding their long incumbency challenged by new players with decidedly different strengths.
 THE NEW MOTOWN. Today, automotive manufacturers must compete with 
 powerful tech giants and a multitude of nimble mobility 
 startups. With emerging disruptors on all sides, traditional 
 car companies must adapt or face extinction.
  4. 4. Today, traditional car brands must compete with Silicon Valley tech leaders like Alphabet, Apple, and Amazon—companies with deep software expertise, global brand recognition, and trillions of dollars for investing in innovation. They’re deeply integrated into the everyday lives of consumers in a myriad of ways, offering the full gamut of devices, platforms, and services.

  5. 5. New inventions will always be disruptive 
 to the old way.” — Jeff Bezos, Amazon “
  6. 6. Car companies must also contend with a multitude of nimble mobility startups like Tesla, NIO, Uber, and Lyft—smaller companies with youthful energy, no burdensome legacy, and little to lose. Without the defensive baggage of incumbents, they can pivot relatively quickly to meet changing market demands. Startups Tesla Model S Uber ATGLyft & Aptiv AV
  7. 7. Change will require a newcomer to fundamentally design the vehicle differently.” — Padmasree Warrior, NIO “
 DRIVING CHANGE. Disruption is being driven by technological advances, shifting attitudes around ownership and sustainability, continuing global urbanization, and perhaps the biggest impetus is public safety.
  9. 9. Vehicles are becoming platforms, enabled by low-cost sensors and screens, efficient electric batteries, and expanding wireless connectivity. Interfaces are evolving with touch, haptics, voice, and augmented displays. Autonomous vehicles represent the culmination of this evolving intelligence, as the car becomes its own pilot and caretaker. Technological Innovation
  10. 10. When you look at the major 
 areas that are being disrupted in the auto industry, it’s connectivity, it’s electrification, it’s sharing, and it’s autonomous.” — Mary Barra, GM “
  11. 11. Across many industries, consumers are opting for subscription services over private ownership, and younger consumers are more influenced by ethical and sustainable practices and messaging. With lagging trends in car sales and drivers license adoption in the US, many consumers may never own a car, and those who do are more likely to prefer an electric vehicle. Sharing + Sustainability
  12. 12. The goal of Tesla is to accelerate sustainable energy.” — Elon Musk, Tesla “
  13. 13. Over 50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, closer to 80% in most of the developed world. In many city centers, parking and streets make up 50% of urban area, and cars remain parked 95% of the time. Autonomous vehicles could reshape urban environments, radically reducing parking, streets, and vehicles, and freeing up large amounts of space. Urbanization + Real Estate
  14. 14. Los Angeles is half parking lots and roads. It’s just crazy that’s what we use our space for.” — Larry Page, Alphabet “
  15. 15. Every day, roughly 3,500 people die on roads around the world, and another 135,000 are injured. While multiple factors contribute to accidents, human error is the primary contributing factor in over 90% of crashes. In light of statistics like these, the need for change is more than just technological convenience— it’s a moral obligation to public safety. Health + Safety
  16. 16. Our vision is simple: zero fatalities on our roads.” — Anthony Foxx, US Secretary of Transportation “
 MUST ADAPT. Ten years ago, mobile phone manufacturers struggled and mostly failed to survive the smartphone wave. As automotive OEMs face a similar sea change, what can they learn from the mobile disruption of the last decade?
  18. 18. Supply Chain Specialization Automotive manufacturers rely on suppliers for the majority of components, and instead specialize in planning and assembly. As the supply chain becomes more complex, OEMs should consider vertical integration and strategic specialization in areas where they can differentiate and defend. Platform Partnership As car companies approach the software side of the modern vehicle, they should be open to smart partnerships for sourcing interface platforms, data, and artificial intelligence, and consider using the application layer to add their own services with differentiating functionality. Lessons Learned Brand Relationship Ridesharing companies are threatening to usurp the customer relationship by supplanting the traditional distribution model. Moving forward, OEMs should look to maintain and deepen their brand presence with consumers through prominent marketing and more direct distribution. Service Ecosystem Automotive manufacturers must begin thinking beyond the car to build a larger product and service ecosystem. This means thinking holistically about the mobility journey, considering the transitions between various modes of transport, and investing in emerging forms of travel.
 WITH RESEARCH. We cataloged and synthesized movement patterns to 
 extrapolate a bigger picture of current travel behavior, and complemented it with secondary desk research on market and technology trends to understand the trajectory of change.
  20. 20. To better understand the current state of mobility, we decided to test ourselves. We invited Punchcut employees to activate the Timeline feature in Google Maps to capture data about our mobility patterns over the course of a few months time, and arrived at a set of insights that capture our perspective on the future of mobility experiences. Timeline Testing Google Timeline
  21. 21. Insight 1 There are three basic types of travel: the jaunt, the commute, and the journey.
  22. 22. Our research identified three basic travel types: the jaunt, the commute, and the journey. These trips range from short to long in distance and duration, utilize multiple forms of transport, and arise from a range of common motivations. These categories help us understand the mobility landscape and represent key areas of opportunity for future innovation. Jaunts, Commutes + Journeys
  23. 23. The Jaunt Jaunts are short, quick trips of less than 10 miles, under an hour. They’re the most frequent and spontaneous category. Most jaunts utilize active, personal forms of transport, and they may be solitary or social, including, family, friends, coworkers, or pets. The Commute Commutes are mid-size trips of less than 100 miles, under 3 hours. They account for the majority of travel time and occur regularly within expected windows. Commutes utilize a variety of modes, and they tend to be lonely, either solitary or with strangers. The Journey Journeys are long trips up to 10,000 miles and 20 hours. They are infrequent and highly planned. Journeys utilize mostly passive, shared forms of transport, and they may be solitary or with immediate family or close friends, in addition to strangers.
  24. 24. Insight 2 Emerging forms of transit will increase speed, expand range, and reduce travel time.
  25. 25. A variety of emerging forms of mobility promise to drastically increase the average speed of transit including autonomous vehicles in synced formations, new high-speed and vacuum tube trains, and the resurgence of supersonic planes. And SpaceX has proposed suborbital spacecraft that could enable travel anywhere on Earth in under an hour. Future Forms Virgin Hyperloop One SpaceX BFRBoom XB-1
  26. 26. Visual and motion cues can help prepare and soothe passengers during changes in velocity, and elements of the vehicle can transform to create safe positions for travelers and their belongings. Experiences should establish familiar routines, like airplane take off and landing procedures, to mitigate discomfort and set passenger expectations appropriately. Designing 
 for Speed Virgin Hyperloop One Traditional Airline Cues
  27. 27. Insight 3 Most trips involve multiple modes, and connecting these modes will be critical.
  28. 28. It’s commonplace for trips of any substantial distance to include four or more distinct modes of transport, and today these services aren’t coordinated with one another whatsoever, leaving consumers to do all the work to string them together, demanding organizational hassle and resulting in wasted time. Multimodal 
  29. 29. As additional forms of mobility emerge from a variety of competing interests, multimodal trips will become increasingly common and complex. Future experiences should focus on enabling trip planning across multiple services, and delivering seamless transitions as passengers progress between modes. Planning + Progression Virgin Hyperloop One App
  30. 30. Insight 4 Future vehicles will offer privacy with adaptive spaces and virtual experiences.
  31. 31. Emerging experiences will offer a range of privacy options through adaptive interior spaces, and virtual reality experiences can create private virtual spaces within a shared reality. Like train travel or ridesharing models, the level of privacy and additional service amenities can be offered at tiered rates. Premium Privacy Airbus A³ Transpose
  32. 32. Insight 5 As mobility shifts away from active human piloting, people will experience more freedom.
  33. 33. Autonomous vehicles and other passive forms of transport will offer passengers more freedom and control than they’ve ever experienced behind the wheel. When the burden of piloting the vehicle is removed, people will find themselves with large amounts of free time returned to their days. Autonomy + Freedom Nio Eve
  34. 34. Today, navigation experiences center on turn- by-turn direction, but as mobility modes shift from active human piloting toward passive riding, navigation should instead focus on providing awareness of progress and estimates of travel time and arrival, similar to airline seatback displays or subway car route maps. Navigational Awareness MTA R-2-11 Virgin America
  35. 35. Insight 6 Future forms of mobility will bring back past pursuits and enable new possibilities.
  36. 36. Emerging forms of transit will allow greater freedom of use in familiar ways for train riders of the past century, and novel ways that we’ve never seen before, and with advances in virtual reality, we’re not far off from a “real”-life holodeck. Experiences will be more immersive, adaptive, and deeply integrated with the services that enrich consumers’ lives. Flexibility + Immersion Qantas VR App
  37. 37. Insight 7 Air travel will be the next big industry to be disrupted, and then there’s space.
  38. 38. Air travel’s increasing inefficiency drastically undercuts its potential speed, and its strategy of “calculated misery” creates intentionally inferior passenger experiences. Any time there’s this much friction, many new players will be looking to disrupt, disintermediate, and reinvent, and high-speed trains and suborbital space travel could offer that opportunity. Efficiency + Comfort Virgin Hyperloop One SpaceX BFR
  39. 39. Space promises another category of travel—
 the voyage, a long-distance expedition of exploration or emigration. Lasting months, years, even centuries, travelers will live like nomads, and vehicles will be traveling homes, communities, and cities. Entire generations could live and die in space, experiencing only travel without origin or destination. Pioneering Space SpaceX Interplanetary System
  40. 40. Human colonization on other planets is no longer science fiction. It can be science fact.” — Stephen Hawking, University of Cambridge “
