CES 2020: Creating a Platform for Mobility as a Service With Bell’s Carey Cannon

Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin recently sat down with Bell’s Chief Engineer of Innovation Carey Cannon at CES 2020 to discuss micro-mobility and solutions for current urban and rural transit challenges, among other insights.

Cannon and Litwin discussed how Bell is pioneering air-mobility at scale and working with cities to implement the necessary infrastructure for short-distance air travel, a monumental undertaking, and the company’s “mobility as a service” platform.

Cannon identified a tension between human density and the natural desire for increased mobility as a key challenge facing the global transportation infrastructure, an issue for which there won’t be an easy, all-in-one solution.

In the urban environment, Cannon said Bell’s Nexus air taxi could help alleviate some of that strain by focusing on short-range trips and providing travelers an alternative more of transit.

Litwin and Cannon also got into potential strategies to scale up air taxi service without skyrocketing and prohibitive costs, early analytics surround the service’s potential, regulatory challenges, and public and private partnerships and transit.
