This year will be exciting as “micromobility projects” emerge from R&D to real world deployment. Consumers will form opinions as self-driving geofenced taxi’s, passenger shuttles, trucks, package and food delivery vans hit the streets powered by vast innovation: brilliant sensors, software, telematics, biometrics and computing power. Less technologically captivating, but more impressive by sheer numbers are the relatively simple connected e-bikes and e-scooters. We can watch them jockey striving to be the next iconic brand among users, communities, bystanders and investors. The rubber meets the road as these billion dollar startups endeavor to prove that the mythical Last Mile MaaS business models are really imbued with profits double manufacturing as the prize of transformation. Will ride share/hailing companies cannibalize riders for 2 wheeled transport? Will dockless go the way of homeless? Will the emergency rooms get flooded with uninsured millennials and will malpractice lawyers get a new lease on life? The stakeholder community has truly grown as micromobility arrives.

This month’s featured members are providing important advances in virtual reality, turning heat and light to clean water and save our dying bees and apropos, a biometric laded e-bike to make every ride react to our health condition.

The curated I-Hub provides resources to commercialize and monetize Intellectual Property, and to access software, events, novel databases, special reports, government resources, in-the-pulse blogs, and innovation leader presentations.

As always, we invite all readers to join our intellectual property marketplace, free of charge, and engage the community and to attend one of the over 100 global conferences we will support this year to personally engage the change agents.

Join and get One-Click-Closer® to being our next success story.
