Daily email newsletter

Every day, Intelligent Mobility Insight’s editors will be checking over 250 global news sources across our 11 industry sectors and making sense of what these stories mean to the collaborative community. We will deliver the most relevant and topical breaking news stories to your desktop by 06:00 GMT. Each story will carry a headline and a brief synopsis with a link through to our website where the full story will be available.

IMI will provide news stories and trends across all the major industry verticals and provide intelligent and informed comment and business critical information to the executives developing the solutions to the world’s integrated transport and mobility challenges.

The Website

IntelligentMobilityInsight.com will provide in depth news stories from the daily email newsletter in a fully searchable format. Each of our 11 industry sectors will have a dedicated page on the site. The editorial mission will be to provide urban mobility stakeholders with a combination of news, insight and analysis along with authoritative and business critical intelligence from across all sectors of the urban mobility business space.

Website content will include:

  • Proprietary commentary and insight articles written in-house (by the editorial team and selected freelance contributors)
  • Data
  • Utilisation of social media platforms with associated content links back to the site to help build traffic and community
  • White Papers from consulting companies and financial institutions
  • Contributions from selected external experts, consultants and academics
  • Interactive sector-by-sector future mobility roadmap

The editorial will maintain a steady flow of insight pieces to the site that will highlight key developments in relevant technologies, regulatory and policymaking areas, as well as provide a window on how major future mobility themes are evolving, with implications for the business community.

A data section on the site will contain a range of relevant data metrics from publicly available sources. The intention is also to embrace ‘data journalism’ with infographics that illustrate a variety of future mobility themes and narratives (eg the rise of car clubs and car sharing, the proliferation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems leading to autonomous drive, bicycle hire schemes in cities).
