Top 100 Transportation Trends in 2019

From Accessible Driverless Shuttles to Zero Emission Planes

— January 25, 2020 — Autos
A number of different 2019 transportation trends emerged to provide consumers with new ways of getting around. Many of the 2019 transportation trends cater to the growing demand for sustainability in people’s everyday lives. One of the important developments came from EasyMile, the organization that created a new self-driving shuttle tilted the ‘EZ10.’ The autonomous shuttle is able to fit 15 people, and it is electrically powered.

Another important development in the transpiration industry is the ‘X One’ e-bike. The e-bike features an Android interface that is able to be unlocked using facial recognition technology. Riders are also able to use the facial recognition system for turn signals. Lastly, ZeroAvia created a plane prototype that is powered by hydrogen. The prototype successfully completed test flights, and it could have significant implications for the future of eco-friendly aviation.
