Europe II 2012 (14)
Theme: Communications in Travel
Time and movements characterise both Mobile Communications and the Travel Industry and this synergy should breed interesting services. Yet, better communications can substitute the need to travel, as happens in times of strikes, volcanic ash, storms etc… The Travel Industry should also explore what they can do for the traveller, and deliver their precious ‘content’ on smart mobile devices with advanced media or as reliable and timely short text. Airports and stations are becoming hubs of connectivity. The Automotive section of communications is going beyond GPS and has enormous potential. Battery life of mobile devices is much improved, but has still a way to go. Roaming facilities and unsubscribed local services have also room to grow, catering for those high spenders ‘road warriors’.
