Originally from Germany, Philipp Kampshoff was educated in institutions around the world from Singapore to Argentina and, in the process, now speaks three languages. He holds a Ph.D. in finance from RWTH Aachen in Germany and joined McKinsey & Company right after graduating college, where he now works as a senior partner in the company’s Houston, TX office. Philipp co-founded the McKinsey Center for Future Mobility (MCFM), and has recently worked with multiple OEMs to develop large-scale autonomous driving projects. He has also consulted for major cities including Dubai, Chicago, and Paris on their future-mobility plans.
In this episode, Philipp joins DNT to share his expert knowledge on future vehicle technology, particularly autonomous mobility. He and Derek D discuss the automotive industry’s evolving views on the timeline for level 4 autonomous vehicles (so-called full auto), what factors will predict the profitability of robotaxi services, and why we’re still a long way from having autonomous aviation. Plus, their conversation explores autonomous trucking, operating robotaxis and similar services in the congested streets of major cities, and more.
“It is hard to find an industry that is not impacted by future mobility trends.”
