This book adds a critical perspective to the legal dialogue on the regulation of ‘smart urban mobility’. Mobility is one of the most visible sub-domains of the ‘smart city’, which has become shorthand for technological advances that influence how cities are structured, public services are fashioned, and citizens coexist. In the urban context, mobility has come under pressure due to a variety of different forces, such as the implementation of new business models (e.g. car and bicycle sharing), the proliferation of alternative methods of transportation (e.g. electric scooters), the emergence of new market players and stakeholders (e.g. internet and information technology companies), and advancements in computer science (in particular due to artificial intelligence). At the same time, demographic changes and the climate crisis increase innovation pressure. In this context law is a seminal factor that both shapes and is shaped by socio-economic and technological change. This book puts a spotlight on recent developments in smart urban mobility from a legal, regulatory, and policy perspective. It considers the implications for the public sector, businesses, and citizens in relation to various areas of public and private law in the European Union, including competition law, intellectual property law, contract law, data protection law, environmental law, public procurement law, and legal philosophy.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,3, University of applied sciences, Munich, language: English, abstract: The automotive industry is facing the biggest changes in its more than 100 years of existence. At the end of this decade, the first electric vehicle is going to enter the mass market that can compete on product features, comfort and price with the internal combustion engines. People keep moving into urban areas. The requirements toward future mobility increase. Some countries already decided to prefer electric vehicles to conventional cars. Profits will shift to other markets or segments. Incumbents must align their current strategies to keep their market share in the future and participate in future profit pools of the automotive industry. BMW and Tesla have different strategic approaches to the upcoming changes in the industry. BMW, as many other OEMs, is aware of future challenges and disruptive forces and has much more resources to manage the required investments in R&D than smaller start-ups. However, disruptive forces come from lower functionality and low-cost products that are usually overlooked by dominant firms in an industry. This research analyzes the two automotive companies BMW and Tesla by using the common strategy analysis tools. First, the firms’ external environment is analyzed by using the PESTEL analysis, describing relevant trends that affect the strategic decision of the two companies. An industry overview with future projections is provided. Secondly, an internal analysis is performed. SWOT analysis and the VRIO framework form the basis to define the strengths, weaknesses, unique recourses and capabilities of BMW and Tesla. The conclusion provides an overall discussion of the most important findings emerging from the analysis with regard to the business operations and the existing business models of the two car manufacturers. Furthermore, important implications for the adaption and adjustment processes are discussed.
