Enhancing User Experience to Improve Personal Mobility Experience
(Session Code: CNV100)

Room Grand Ballroom B  10:30 a.m.

The abundance of personal electronic devices is causing a shift in individual expectations of personal mobility. These expectations are conflicting: consumers desire personalization of their devices, but manufacturers strive for commonality; some consumers view personal mobility as a chore, others as an expression of their individuality. We will explore these dichotomies, and discuss the near and mid-term shifts in the expectation of how consumers will perceive personal mobility devices.
