The transport system will also change towards increasing automation, leading to greater integration between vehicles and clouds, various control towers and other vehicles. Automation and integration present great opportunities for lowering energy consumption, increasing vehicle utilization, reducing congestion and more. However, they also, introduce new vulnerabilities such as hacking, sensitivity to adverse weather conditions, and increased reliance on a stable electricity supply. Enabling research and development in all these areas is of great importance and a core mission for AstaZero.
