Connectivity & Convergance, trend in LatAm mobility

The worldwide "Connectivity & Convergence" megatrend is one of the key tendencies impacting smart mobility in Latin America right now, LatAm research manager for consultancy firm Frost & Sullivan Yeswant Abhimanyu told Global Fleet in an interview.
According to the consultant, it has pushed a boom in technology innovation, data generation & information flows, new digital touch points, digital journeys and real-time, low-latency communication.
"Leveraging all of these elements to create an efficient multi-modal transport network that is governed by smart decisions and intelligent management through seamless communication across the entire transport network is the essence," he said.

In Latin America, larger cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City and Sao Paulo already have initiatives which are steering developments in this direction.
Abhimanyu is also principal consultant for automotive and digital transformation for the consultancy firm and one of the newest members of the Global Fleet advisory board Latin America.
