AI MOBILITY MATCH CHALLENGE CONTEST

Be a Pioneer of Future Mobility!

The future of mobility requires rethinking everything from ownership to interfaces. Humanity is tasked with balancing increasingly complex transport needs, growing connectivity and data and climate change.
BeIntelli, is working towards shaping a new mobility ecosystem and is calling on students to come up with new ideas where innovative applications and services come together.
Are you up to the task? Choose one of the three categories to submit your ideas.

Submit idea

Categories

Moving people

With coordinated and connected autonomous mobility (CCAM) new ways of moving people unlock. Can you think of more environmentally-friendly and convenient ways of transportation across transport modes?

  • ride-sharing/ ride-hailing

  • autonomous bus and tram

  • Vehicle on demand

  • Emergency vehicles

  • Tele-operation

  • rail, air, water and road transport

Connected services

By combining different data sources coming from sensors, radars and other intelligent systems real-time feedback of the status on the ground becomes a reality. Cycles, roads, pedestrians, vehicles and the weather provide valuable insights which combined, make space for unprecedented innovation. What new data-based business models can arise?

  • smart pedestrian crossing

  • smart cycling

  • insurance models

  • fuel planning

  • maintenance

Last-mile logistics

Moving goods to and within urban settings is a herculean task. Congestion, road closures, carbon emissions and other unexpected factors make last-mile logistics a perfect candidate for trying out new ways of doing things. Can you think of one?

  • Last-mile autonomous vehicles

  • Route optimization

  • Predictive demand planning

  • Drone delivery

Prizes

Projects will be judged on their ability to produce a clear solution-concept and the innovativeness, feasibility and potential contribution to SDGs of their idea.
