Over the past few years, IxDA London has been following and challenging a lot of the hype re: autonomous vehicles, in-car interfaces and the role of connected devices in moving people better.
This month, we are looking a bit broader to explore the often nebulous concept of mobility through the lens of interaction design.
We'll be joined by Nate Giraitis from Smart Design, who will be talking through some of Smart's work across delivery, ride-hailing and shared mobility.

The Trainline will be hosting us and David Willis, a designer in the team, will also be sharing a case study around some of their recent work.
