Mobility has been a paradigm of innovation since the industrial revolution (cars, trains, vehicles communication including all infrastructure and services) and is one of the reasons for nowadays economical wealth. Mobility is the state of being in motion. Mobility is about making connections in time and space possible. It is about bringing things and people closer together. It is about the transportation of people, information, news, food, materials. It is about connecting people, products, goods. It is about speed and reducing distance.
