Will the U.S. follow the lead of some European Union countries and ban diesel-fueled engines? Will for-hire scooters continue to grow in popularity, and how will the so-called “Internet of Things” expand to help motor vehicles detect threats and avoid crashes? Could our kids head to school on buses operated by electronics rather than gas-powered? These questions, and others, were posed by Global Trade Magazine recently. Global Trade Magazine predicts that evolving technologies and trends that emerged a short time ago will continue toward full integration while others could fade away like a passing fad. Whatever the case might be, we will start to see drastic changes incorporated into the way we move ourselves and our things around.
Personal scooters available for rent made a tremendous impact in 2019 in certain areas. The impact was negative overall. However, tolerance for the foot-powered scooters is growing, and we could see people using scooters with higher frequency for commuting, sightseeing groups, and pedestrians using them to get around. There is still a learning curve, but continued use will permit people to integrate scooters as a viable transportation option finally.
Technology will continue to enhance our transportation options. IoT, which is shorthand for the Internet of Things, will continue to emerge as the next big thing in transportation. Vehicles with web-smart devices such as processors, sensors, and transmitters will become more widely used so vehicles could communicate with each other. Also, these devices will be able to identify safety threats like pedestrians and other vehicles.
Autonomous driving should continue to expand as carmakers and other vehicle manufacturers look to expand the possibility of self-driving cars as reliability and safety increase.
Integrating alternate fuel sources is also an emerging trend that will continue to develop. Electric bikes are quickly becoming integrated with commutes. School buses, due to their short running times, could also be adapted to run purely on electricity.
