What is your vision for the company?

The world of transportation is going to change fast in the coming years - with autonomous, electric and connected vehicles, hyper-fast trains and flying cars! We will connect that world to the space around it - helping cars of the future get from A to B with ease and get serviced, charged or simply park for a few hours waiting for the next ride.

Dan Roarty
