Challenge 1: MAGENTA Telekom

Challenge Statement

How can we make it possible for people to travel "the last mile" (distance less than 5 kilometers) from a major public transportation hub to their desired destination?

Design Briefing

Magenta Business has been focusing on smart city ecosystem solutions for two years with targeted activities for the special focus on smart regions. Magenta Business offers complete IoT solutions to the most important stakeholder groups such as municipalities, cities and companies (B2B). The "Smart City Ecosystem" programme has so far focused on the following areas:

  • Air quality survey (fine dust measurement)
  • Fleet solutions (winter service)
  • Waste management (waste bin level measurement)
  • and smart parking.

Mobility is another focus that will receive more attention in the future. A research study is currently underway in this regard, which is expected to deliver initial results by the end of June 2021 and will thus influence the strategic direction.

Challenge 2: Supermobility - Supertracker

Challenge Statement

How can we make measurement results tangible for users and owners of e-bikes and e-scooters?

Design Briefing

Richard Hirschhuber has become aware of the problem outlined above in the course of his career, his research and in the operational business of the last four years. 

The company focuses on sustainable and efficient mobility. Supermobility has recognised the challenge that vehicles are inefficiently used and disconnected around the world.

At the moment, the Supertracker is "just" a piece of hardware that has been developed to measure data around mobility. Users and owners of e-bikes and e-scooters cannot currently read out data. The Supertracker wants to connect a multitude of stakeholders and have a lasting positive influence on the use of electric vehicles. 

Challenge 3: SWARCO

Challenge Statement

How might we create an outstanding experience in order to trigger a sustainable behavioral change within the soft mobility user groups in small and medium cities? 

Design Briefing

SWARCO believes that sustainable change within cities comes from changing citizens' behavior. Therefore it is the citizens that need to get involved and 'nudged' to modify their (daily) actions. SWARCO is in the good position of having plenty of data available at their hands, to potentially impact cities and citizens in a positive way by transforming the right set of data into tangible outcomes and benefits. The data can have the power to change the way citizens experience mobility in their cities (with a focus on soft mobility users, like bikes, micro-mobility and pedestrians). First we want to understand the end-users' needs, challenges and aspirations when it comes to using soft mobility solutions. Therefore, the right data has to be analyzed, processed - and finally communicated in the right manner. Furthermore, citizens have to be somehow rewarded to change certain behavior. 

Overall, SWARCO wants to create a value proposition for the end-users in cooperation with their customers - cities & municipalities - to create a win-win for all involved parties and reach a higher quality of city life.
