Mobility 

Our Mobility Domain is part of our overall commitment to understanding and developing innovative solutions for emerging risks. The Mobility Domain is focused on establishing strategic partnerships and pilot projects that will enable Munich Re, US and its clients to develop risk management solutions for the new era of mobility, including such areas as vehicle telematics, shared mobility, crash avoidance systems, and autonomous driving.

 

Why mobility?

United Nations projections put the world population at 10 billion by 2056, with more people living in cities and becoming more mobile than ever. Americans? They are the most mobile of all, traveling more than 15,000 miles a year on average, according to a Siemens report on urban mobility.

“Autonomous vehicle (AV) and other mobility technology sit at the intersection of a number of emerging trends that, together, will change not only driving but the nature of mobility. Development of these visions could face a host of social, economic and regulatory factors impacting insurers and their customers. Those who remain at the forefront of AV development will be better positioned to successfully manage and leverage these impacts and business opportunities.”

Mike Scrudato, Senior Vice President, New Strategic Markets and Mobility Domain Leader
