In the meeting the speakers are invited to discuss the problem of mobility today. In particular, we invite Next Future Transportation to intervene and present the electric vehicles, designed by them, whose peculiarity is not autonomous driving, but modularity. The vehicles that are able to work individually as taxis or cars in sharing when and where in needed, but also capable of joining in long convoys to act as trams or capacious buses, at rush hour and in the places where there is one route is needed. This is a flexible mobility that is modeled in real time on the needs of the city and users.
