Autotopia in 2024 and Beyond: Navigating Our Mobility Evolution
Ray Mandli, President, Mandli Communications
March 11, 2024
This exploration delves into "Autotopia," examining its implications for mobility in 2024 and beyond, while also tracing the history of roads and the supporting infrastructure. We analyze the evolution of mobility, from ancient pathways to modern highways, and speculate on future trends. By considering advancements in transportation technology, urban planning, and societal preferences, alongside infrastructure development, we gain insights into transformative changes shaping how we move. From shared mobility to sustainability initiatives, we explore the impact on society, the economy, and the environment. This examination offers a deeper understanding of Autotopia's driving forces and the opportunities and challenges it presents for individuals, businesses, and policymakers.


As a follow up to my presentation last night, here are several relevant news stories that came out this morning. The first one was on good morning America and it examines how our cars may be spying on us. The second story, from CBS Morning news, addresses the shortfall of current driver assist systems.The third link is to a live web event that is being put on tonight  by the Wisconsin Alumni Association that addresses the EV revolution.

If you’ve recently been in the market for a new car or truck, chances are you’ve seen news about the growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs). What are the benefits and drawbacks of driving electric? What would be the impact on overall U.S. emissions if more or all Americans were to choose an EV? Can the U.S. meet the increased demand for electricity needed to power EVs that has been seen in other countries? Who will become the world leader in EV production?
Join us online this Tuesday, Mar. 12, at 7 p.m. CDT as we moderate a live discussion with leading experts on electric vehicles. Afterward, the guests will take questions from the audience via live chat. You can join the livestream here, or request a reminder now to receive an email a half hour before the program starts.
