Do we still need our own car? What will our cityscape look like in 20 years? What needs do rural regions have? Which clever minds in the industry think mobility and how? And what do on-demand services and mobility analytics have to do with all this? Questions that we ask ourselves every day in our work and to which we – at least now and then – note our answers and thoughts. For you, for us, for exciting impulses, for more mobility and less traffic.
What is … level 1-5 of autonomous driving?
Autonomous driving has been considered one of the major trends in the mobility industry for years. According to a representative survey conducted by the digital association Bitkom in 2021, 99.8 percent of respondents can imagine using an autonomous means of transport*. But what does it actually mean when car manufacturers send the first systems for highly automated driving on the road at level 3 and level 4 autonomous shuttles reinforce public transport in Germany on demand from 2023 onwards?
PERSPECTIVES from Fabian Heil, PostBus Ltd.

RE:PERSPECTIVES from Dr Olga Nevska, Telekom MobilitySolutions
Three years ago, Dr Olga Nevska, CEO Telekom Mobility Solutions, was interviewed in our blog series “PERSPECTIVES from …”. At that time, we talked about the challenges of organising company mobility solutions, but also about employee mobility at Telekom and the then new on-demand service with ioki software.
Since 2020, a lot has happened in the area of mobility and work. That’s why ioki insights asked again. This time, it’s all about the changes in employee mobility since the pandemic, the trends in corporate mobility and how demand responsive services are being received by employees.
Corporate Mobility in 2023: flexible solutions instead of classic company transport or company cars
For a long time, the company car was considered the non-plus-ultra and was often the only mobility offer employees could expect from their employer. In 2023, more flexible mobility solutions such as digital demand-responsive company transport, job bikes and mobility budgets are gaining ground. Rising energy prices, stricter environmental and climate protection regulations as well as greater sustainability awareness among employees are also contributing to the need for companies to rethink their corporate mobility management.
