MicroSnap: Flexible Pods for Last-Mile Transport
Mobility visionary Rinspeed AG’s new MicroSNAP concept features self-driving, electric mini-“skateboards” that carry a wide variety of plug-in pods for last mile transport of people or goods. Rinspeed is creating a startup unit to further develop and commercialize the concept, says CEO Frank Rinderknecht.
John Simlett, EY’s Global Future of Mobility Leader, adds that EY’s blockchain-based Tesseract platform provides a secure method to manage a network of shared-ownership Snap skateboards and modules.
