The continuous waves in digital innovations over the past few years, and the sweeping changes anticipated by disruptive mobility, have inspired visions of a very different future as well as a good deal of hype. To distinguish between the hype and reality, this chapter discusses the role of disruptive technologies within low carbon mobility networks and describes how digital innovations are changing the urban mobility landscape, enabling real-time measurement and analysis of urban mobility, and promoting sustainable smart cities. The chapter maps the value of data-driven innovations in mobility and draws on practical applications, case studies and modelling results to demonstrate the benefits. The chapter also describes the major behavioural and technological changes, and the new mobility business models that would be required to achieve the desired targets and outcomes. Finally, the chapter provides a reflection of the value derived from typical smart mobility `use cases'. It then identifies the policy principles which are central to the success of smart mobility, and how it will give our cities an opportunity to modernise transport systems and help drive economic growth and create jobs for the twenty-first century.
