Today, AT&T and the Intelligent Transportation Society of America released a report investigating trends in mobility that are shaping the future of transportation in a more connected world.

At AT&T, we’ve been working with auto manufacturers for years to help improve vehicle safety and performance by integrating wireless connectivity. These efforts have resulted in exciting next-generation voice solutions, enhanced diagnostics and maintenance capabilities, on-board infotainment and more. Still, we recognize that larger trends are fundamentally changing how people get from Point A to Point B. As part of our ongoing commitment to create a more mobilized world, we want to understand these trends and maximize the opportunities they create.

We are excited to use the power of our network to build a better tomorrow, and we will continue to work with automobile and technology leaders to create and support more efficient transportation services.

This report, Rise of the Real-Time Traveler, starts by exploring developments such as changing demographics, urbanization and the continuing integration of technology in our daily lives. The report shines a light on how these shifts impact travelers, from ridesharing and trip planning to automotive design.

We embarked on this study to better understand the social and environmental effects wireless technology has on transportation. While the full impacts are still unfolding, this research will guide our continuing efforts. We are excited to use the power of our network to build a better tomorrow, and we will continue to work with automobile and technology leaders to create and support more efficient transportation services.
