Top 75 Transportation Innovations in August

From AI Dashboards to Urban Scooter Reservations

— August 18, 2019 — Autos
As technology progresses, consumers demand convenience, and this list of August 209 transportation trends shows how the vehicle industry is responding to this.

New technology is being integrated into cars and other modes of transportation. A perfect example of this can be seen with the implementation of AI in FAW's vehicles, as the car's now arrive with an interactive AI dashboard hologram that helps to personalize one's ride. In other news, Lime is continuing to takeoff in the United States, offering users a more eco-friendly mode of transportation. Now, users can reserve these scooters ahead of time, increasing efficiency and convenience.

Lastly, even ride share companies are continuing to innovate, and this can be seen with the latest updates to the LYFT app, which now offers customized pins to alleviate any confusion during airport-based pick-ups.
