Facebook is a new partner of the Digital Hub Mobility
Today at the IAA, Facebook announced its partnership with Digital Hub Mobility. At Munich’s Digital Hub Mobility, automotive companies and mobility providers, suppliers, academics, and the digital industry are
working together on the mobility of the future. Facebook, one of the leading technology companies, is contributing its
expertise towards the development of future mobility.

The Digital Hub Mobility, which is led by the UnternehmerTUM, Center for Innovation and Business Creation at the Technical University of Munich, provides the ideal platform. At Munich’s Digital Hub Mobility, automotive companies and mobility providers, suppliers, academics, and the digital industry are working together for the first time. The plan is to establish an attractive test environment for urban mobility concepts and develop new business models for connected and automated driving. Facebook is an extremely appealing partner. As a technology company, Facebook is unique as a global disseminator for new mobility opportunities, and it provides the ideal prerequisites for quickly developing prototypes. Facebook will bring to the table its expertise in a number of specialist fields, for example artificial intelligence. Facebook’s know-how in the area of digital product development is a huge asset for the DigitalProduct School of Digital Hub Mobility.
