FISITA World Mobility Summit: a digital revolution for mobility

We’re excited to feature a breadth of mobility technology leadership at this year’s upcoming FISITA World Mobility Summit. New technology discussions under the theme ‘Carbon neutral mobility – from cradle to grave’ will pave the way for real progress as the automotive industry aims for a sustainable future.

Digital technology is fast providing underpinning innovations which can support manufacture, use, design as well as the afterlife of vehicles. A selection of World Mobility Summit speakers stand ready to make the case for a digital revolution across the automotive industries:

Laurence Montanari, VP Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes will present the ‘Digitalisation for Sustainable Innovation in Transport and Mobility,’ where she will explore the impact of mobility systems and the reduction of private vehicle ownership on CO2 emissions.

“Moving towards sustainable mobility implies a holistic approach, a complex ecosystem needs to collaborate including territories, energy storage and production, energy distribution, connected vehicles, payments and users,” she says.

Laurence will also explore the simulation of electronic systems, which she believes should be mandatory, and accelerating the development of vehicles for a better mobility experience.

As part of his ‘Modelling and Simulation for Sustainability across the Automotive Life Cycle’ keynote, Christophe Bianchi, Chief Technologist, Ansys, will cover the development of virtual testing and the impact of new engineering solutions aimed at reducing CO2 emissions. He will highlight new AI research papers, life cycle simulation techniques and re-down and re-up-cycling strategies.

“With the massive transformation triggered by electrification and autonomy, modelling and simulation play an ever-increasing role in moving towards sustainability, this itself is expected to be one of the biggest contributors to achieving net-zero,” says Christophe.

Sudhi Uppuluri, Director, Automotive and Transportation Industry, Siemens Digital Industries will then share his keynote on ‘The Role of Comprehensive Digital Twin to enable Sustainable Mobility,’ showcasing Siemens’ Comprehensive Digital Twins for key technologies.

“Firstly, capturing the complex multi-physics of batteries and motors that enable the virtual representation to be accurate enough for optimising and predicting failure modes. Secondly, combining the strengths of human and machine to uncover unconventional solutions and, finally, leveraging all of this during operation for predictive maintenance and continued operations of the fleets,” he says.

The role of digital innovation cannot be underestimated in accelerating sustainable mobility. Even supporting the acceleration of development of vehicles for a better mobility experience, these innovations can contribute to real decarbonization.
