At this year’s Detroit International Auto Show, Joe Bannon, DMI’s Global Vice President of Business Development, led an Executive Briefing on mobility trends that have the potential to transform the automotive and transportation industries.

Joining Joe Bannon on stage to talk about blockchain-based digital identities, killer apps for mobility, and integrated transportation were:

  • Mamatha Chamarthi, Head of Software Business and Product Management – Global, Americas and Asia, at Stellantis
  • Tram Vo, co-founder of the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI) and CEO of Citopia
  • Jenny Heinze, DMI’s Global Head of Automotive & Software Mobility

Highlights from the panel discussion include:

  • Mamatha Chamarthi highlighting Stellantis’ ground-breaking work with consumers via their “Freedom of Mobility Forum,” which addresses the most urgent “Mobility Issues” facing society today and connects Stellantis directly with consumers as well as with private and public entities
  • Tram Vo emphasizing the importance of prioritizing interoperability so that “killer apps” will maximize participation across the industry – from local dealerships to charging stations and mobile software developers
  • DMI’s Jenny Heinze speaking to the importance of local, state and federal entities being in alignment with the industry’s leaders. MOBI’s work with the Oregon Department of Transportation to re-invent the tollways of the future was discussed as an example of such public-private collaboration
