“I focus most of my work on the future of mobility”
— philipp kampshoff
In this episode, Philipp joins DNT to share his expert knowledge on future vehicle technology, particularly autonomous mobility. He and Derek D discuss the automotive industry’s evolving views on the timeline for level 4 autonomous vehicles (so-called full auto), what factors will predict the profitability of robotaxi services, and why we’re still a long way from having autonomous aviation. Plus, their conversation explores autonomous trucking, operating robotaxis and similar services in the congested streets of major cities, and more.
- Why robotaxi services will likely be much more prevalent in warmer cities
- How autonomous driving will give working people an hour of time back per day on average
