Challenge for the Explore with Us: The Future of Mobility Project

Challenge: The Future of Mobility Concept Design

Brief for The Future of Mobility Concept Design

How will people traverse the everyday in the next 10-20 years? As Allianz continues to think about how today’s disruptive technologies will drive future change, we are challenging our community members to submit their own narrative and concept design focused on the future of mobility. Use present day signals, inputs and emerging technologies to form the foundation of an image and/or video concept design that tells the story of possible future transportation realities. Our first place winner will be awarded a cash prize of $2,000 and will have their concept brought to life in a professionally produced video shared across all of Allianz’s social platforms.  The first place winner will also win a trip to a Formula E event in Paris, where they will have the honor of presenting their final video concept at a professional conference. As you formulate your entry, consider the prompts below:

  1. How will we juggle the needs of family in a connected world?
  2. How will mobility shift the realms of work and home?
  3. What are the mobility and destination needs for post-Generation Z’s?
  4. How will these innovations scale across or between cities, towns and countries?
  5. How might gyro sky technologies (such as the Pal-V flying car) change commutes?
  6. How will hyperloops change city, cross-country and country-to-country travel?
  7. What part will exoskeletons play in pedestrian foot traffic?
  8. What will the future of electric and autonomous vehicles look like and how will they be used?
Get inspired by documentaries on Hyperloops, Autonomous Vehicles and Flying Cars.This challenge is part of the broader Allianz Global Explorer Program. For more info on the program click here.
