smart mobility in Israel
There is a significant gap in the implementation of the technologies mentioned above among the Israeli transportation trade.
In order for Israel to become a true global leader in the smart mobility revolution and bridge this gap, it's essential to promote the assimilation and implementation of mobility technologies in public services, infrastructure, regulation and the Israeli mobility trade as a whole.
Causes of the Gap:
Deteriorated state of infrastructure - can take up to a generation to solve.
A need for an advances regulatory environment.
Extensive activity of Israeli technological developments abroad.
These few causes demonstrate the clear need for a systemic approach that will enable implementation of innovation in the mobility field in Israel in order to bridge the gap, which has not been initiated yet.
The Effects of bridging the Gap
The Israeli mobility sector has a major impact on economic growth, productivity, quality of life and employment.
A concerted, long-term coordinated action by governmental and non-governmental bodies will make a change that will turn Israel into a global leader in the smart mobility revolution.
