EIT Digital Accelerator – Where the future of mobility begins

By Editorial Team on September 7, 2018

As the New Mobility World is the event for disruptors and innovators to talk about mobility and logistics, the EIT Digital Accelerator is proud to be an official partner this year.

More and more European companies are facing the challenges of modern mobility, and a look on the portfolio of companies currently and previously supported by the EIT Digital Accelerator shows how the future of mobility takes on a pivotal role.

The EIT Digital Accelerator Alumni
EIT Digital Accelerator alumnus Konux, for instance, uses AI to deliver asset insights in real time. The company works together with Deutsche Bahn, helping them to digitize their high-speed rail network through condition monitoring of switches, the most critical part of the railway infrastructure.

French scaleup NAVYA develops electric, self-driving shuttles for the use in urban areas and airports. The company joined the EIT Digital Accelerator in 2015 and recently went public on the Euronext stock exchange.

Cleverciti, one of EIT Digital Accelerator’s current portfolio companies, has created a smart sensor technology for smart on-street and open-air parking, aiming to reduce search traffic and CO2 emissions.

The EIT Digital Challenge
Also, many of the finalists for the EIT Digital Challenge 2018, the competition for deep tech scaleups in Europe, deal with topics related to mobility and automotive, showing that this issue is current and of huge growing interest:

AppyParking develops a connected car and kerbside management platform that bridges the gap between big data, mapping, IoT and payments.

Blickfeld invented a LiDAR technology, object detection and a mapping software for autonomous driving. They are also a finalist in the NMW Lab18, so we look forward to seeing them on stage!

And, finally, Toposens uses a 3D sensor based on ultrasound for autonomous vehicles’ close-range perception.

Each of these disruptive technologies changes and innovates the way we move in a world that’s constantly confronting us with new challenges.

We are excited to see what’s yet to come!
