GlobaTech says "Mobility" is the process of
getting people and/or "things" from one place to another to
satisfy their and/or others' needs or requirements often seemingly
spontaneous, idiosyncratic, and specifically unpredictable.
Operationally, initiation creates a dynamic mission profile (subject to change
even as the mission is executed) to govern the execution with the mission's
completion likely triggering preparation for subsequent initiations.
Initiation will usually be
through the internet by people and/or the "Internet of Things"
(or "IoT") often triggered by an App.
Execution is done through the
integration and selective reporting of:
- Reference data in the form of extensively annotated maps and
engineering drawings and locations coupled to the scope of the plan,
- Personal data consisting of some combination of lifestyle
profile, personal history and habits, supposed preferences, interests,
- Real-time data, such as current position (and therefore path,
velocity, progress, and accidents), traffic controls, connected
vehicles, emergency and weather conditions, traffic density and
projections, and other conditions, etc., as well as any people's
and/or goods' actions (such as real-time selections) and/or changes
in condition (such as ambient heat), even Lidar recordings.
- Ambient data, such as speed limits, visibility, road hazards,
construction, cautions, accident history, jurisdiction, precise
geopositions, channel allocations, emergency resources, etc.
- Vehicles' control systems' data and commands, present and
projected (manned and/or autonomous, the latter being preferred),
whose guidance and navigation may be left to machines, especially
computers and satellites.
Continuously through the
process, updates to any of the above data are recorded and reported according
to protocols established by interested parties. These data reports and
recordings could be a source of significant revenues, both as references and
in-transit data. Enroute deliveries and excersions to impulse opportunities
can be pursued at virtually no additional cost.
preparation for the next mission such as: going to the location of the next
mission, heading to a potentially serendipitous location, returning to a
maintenance and/or dispatch base, and/or a refilling (gasoline and/or
electric charge) station or just parking someplace convenient.
The underlying basis for
Mobility's economic feasibility and benefits is Complexity Theory which
prescribes how mass markets with idiosyncratic, 24 by 7, needs can be served
profitably. However, returns on the expensive infrastructure investments
requires, in general, a critical mass of usages (read, "users"
and "IoT devices"), sustained by network effects (which effectively
will reduce the unit costs, while increasing the value, as usage expands).
This usage is seemingly a positive reinforcement loop, not unlike Google
Search, in which usage begets usage.
As such, Mobility is a
Sector of an emerging economy, The Connection Economy!
