It’s about …
Smart, eco-friendly and, face it, just plain cool technologies are the focuses of the Pioneers Ecosystem “Mobility & Transportation.” It’s a smart car, it’s a flying car, it’s a spaceship to Mars, this ecosystem is creating smarter, faster infrastructures and transportation to get us anywhere we want to be, including outer space. All done through state-of-the-art designs and engineering, logistics and routing. Your next adventure could be powered by air pressure, a lithium ion battery, or rocket you to another world. In this ecosystem the sky is certainly not the limit.
These Industries will be disrupted in Mobility & Transportation

Dirk is the CEO and handles the overall direction and administrative details of the whole Hyperloop Transportation Technologies project. As well the CEO of JumpStarter Inc. Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system put forward by Elon “house battery“ Musk, incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushions. A true transportation pioneer, he is one of our experts for the Mobility & Transportation ecosystem and was one of our speakers at Pioneers Festival 2015 where he showcased the first live simulation by Hyperloop.Watch his keynote at PF15

Karosso changes the way people buy pre-owned cars. We simplify the way pre-owned cars are bought online by fixing all the pain points and the lack of transparency. Rather than getting ripped off by a dealership or having to deal with shady individuals, we offer buyers a better price and service than the dealer around the corner. We change all this by taking a highly digital approach to buying used cars. While our online platform www.karosso.de acts as an intermediary between big leasing copmanies and buyers, our customer service is on hand to handle all of the paperwork, getting the cars inspected according to a stringent 180+ checklist, fixing any issues that arise, and then personally delivering the car to buyers.
ParkHere is a smart parking sensor system which detects free parking spaces and makes the information available to car drivers. The unique technology is installed on the ground of parking lots and needs neither cables nor batteries. It is energy autarkic i.e. it generates its own power by energy harvesting. Being sealed in the asphalt it can sustainably be operated for decades without any maintenance.
SIDEWALK - THE NEW ERA OF PARCELS DELIVERY. SIDEWALK - automated city delivery robot which has the main function to transport parcels from place A to place B without human assistance. For example: you order your parcel, robot come to you, you will enter your pin-code (which you already received in your phone) and parcel is yours! And that means - future of delivery: SIDEWALK! We are solving the last mile problem. Last mile is the most expansive part in logistics. With SIDEWALK we will reduce last mile costs ±10 times. Pizza delivery to your home can cost 10 time less! Right Now and right Here.
Future Electric is scaling up for production of 300 motorcycles annually from 2019, with distribution in the USA & EU. The company’s progress has led to the creation of one of the most energy dense electric motors on the market, with a power output of 150 kW (200hp), challenging internal combustion motorcycles in regards to performance. The proprietary technology chassis is optimized from the ground up to handle the forces of this revolutionary electric powertrain, and improves the motorcycle’s handling with more power, control, and safety. “POWER AND CONTROL” – stand for the company’s philosophy of bringing the knowledge gained from motorsports, directly into serial production.
coModule is connecting the 1 billion vehicles nobody is talking about - bicycles, electric bikes and scooters. coModule is the OEM supplier of connectivity and IoT technology for vehicle manufacturers. We supply the full platform including hardware, mobile application and online analytics software.
Toposens builds innovative 3D sensor technology, which can perceive its surroundings via ultrasound in real time. We use off-the-shelf, low-cost components and arrange them in a specific design. We combine this hardware with our unique knowhow that lies in the software and thus offer a small but powerful sensor that recognizes its surroundings. Our sensor is the first of its kind – up to now no other company has been able to scan in real time in 3D using ultrasound with one single sensor system. The Toposens sensor works similar like a bat. The system emits an ultrasound signal and measures the time of flight of this signal from the sensor to the objects and back. Our self-developed algorithm analyses these signals and creates a complete 3D image. The specifications of ultrasound technology will make it possible for the first time to build a 3D sensor system which is small, lightweight, energy efficient and precise, while also being reasonably priced.
Mellow is the first mountable electric drive that turns any normal skateboard into a full on riding machine – within minutes.
We at Metrilus utilize real-time 3-D cameras to develop automation- and computer aided assistance systems. Our customers use these systems to improve their processes in manufacturing logistics and other areas. Recently we developed a game-changing application to revolutionize logistics: Metrilus MetriX The huge breakthrough we have with MetriX is that we are able to use off-the-shelf hardware like tablets or smartphones to determine cubic measurements of parcels. We figured out a way to achieve fast (<50 milliseconds) and at the same time precise measurements (<5 mm error per side) at very low costs (<1.000 USD per device) in arbitrary environments.
Fulfillment speed and accuracy are crucial to the customer experience and the bottom line. But in SMBs, fulfillment operations are antiquated and manual. For retailers this usually means spending more money on people to pick, pack and ship, holding more inventory and higher shipping costs. Fulfil.IO is cloud based software for retailers to improve customer experience and reduce costs by automating fulfillment and back office operations. Fulfil.IO helps businesses increase efficiency of pickers and packers, save on shipping costs and keep better track of inventory.
ABCS SISTEM d.o.o.
Smart Turn System is the first self-canceling turn signal system for motorcycle that cancels turn signals when the maneuver is completed. The device can be mounted on existing bike or as a first installation from motorcycle producers (OEM's). It consists of electronic hardware with movement sensors and complex algorithm which can detect whether a rider has changed a lane, exited a crossroad or simply completed a turn.
Development and Distribution of innovative vertical take-off and landing fixed wing UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) with long flight times which can cover large areas and does not need runway for professional application in surveying, agriculture, search and rescue, surveillance. Equipped with appropriate sensors (optical, multi-spectral, hyper-spectral, thermal). Creation of sophisticated automated workflow so that the customer gets the required Information.
