New–Age Urban Transportation and Disruptive Technologies

  • Nimisha Pal

Emerging technologies have the potential to reshape our world. These innovations, also called disruptive technologies, have started to seep into the area of finding solutions for mobility. Is existing infrastructure prepared for such technological advancements? These and related themes were discussed in a roundtable organised by Observer Research Foundation (ORF) on February 8, 2016. The roundtable, Urban Transportation and Disruptive Technologies, was an opportunity to exchange ideas related to the underlying relationships, the dimensions, and impacts that may be mutually created between the imperatives of urban transportation and the innovations created by disruptive technologies. These relationships span a wide range of planning, technology, policy, and safety perspectives. This special report builds on the opinions articulated in the roundtable, and reviews emerging technology innovations brewing in India and in other parts of the world.
