Story 01What if you could go wherever, whenever, without driving?
Rahul finishes work and heads out for dinner with his wife, Aditi.
Without being prompted, his travel app sends him a notification with the best route for getting to the restaurant in time for their dinner reservation.
Following the instructions, Rahul first takes the automated community bus to the nearest station. The bus follows an optimized route based on real-time traffic data, such as traffic light and congestion information, saving valuable time.
As the bus approaches the station, Rahul gets another notification, recommending that he take the light rail instead of the train as originally planned, based on the latest update about train times and predicted crowding.
As a result, Rahul arrives right on time for a lovely dinner date with Aditi.

Fernando has been assigned to a remote location overseas and is on a video call with his grandma, who lives alone back in his home country.
Because the local internet connection has been poor until now, Fernando has only been able to exchange emails with her.
“It’s so good to see your face again,” his grandma says with a big smile.
Fernando is relieved to see his grandma happy and healthy.
“I’m glad you’re doing well too,” he says. “With the new submarine cable in place, the internet is so much faster now. I’m sure telemedicine will soon be possible as well.”
