The second issue of our Solutions Catalogue has been released

The second issue of our Solutions Catalogue has been released, with over 10 new innovations added from the previous issue that are now part of our EIT Urban Mobility community! In this latest edition of the catalogue, we can find new solutions tackling various areas, from urban design solutions for bike safety to traffic management and data collection. 

Our latest solutions serve different phases of urban innovation. For instance, our co-design tool ModelMe3D serves the early stages of urban planning, allowing citizens to participate and have a say in the design of public spaces through a digitalised co-creation process.  Aris is another early-stage solution that supports the construction process by facilitating remote surveys of urban buildings’ assets thanks to an autonomous, unmanned, aerial system device. In contrast, the latest traffic management software Deeptraffic allows transport authorities to start taking advantage of vehicle connectivity to create a dynamic traffic management system. It accumulates and uses road network data to optimise traffic according to the user’s needs. 

Several new solutions for urban planners 

We also provide solutions for planners to exploit real-time mobility and infrastructure data: DASHBIKE enables the collection of anonymous data on cycling infrastructure, traffic and incidents to inform city officials of urban areas requiring attention. Urban Radar offers a series of planning solutions, such as FRET dedicated to logistic activities within industrial parks, Urban Logistics – optimising delivery patterns and trends within cities, or Citizen Needs creating more liveable cities by giving urban planners insights on the goods and services in a given neighbourhood that answer to citizens’ needs. 

New modes of mobility 

Our mobility services WYZE and Giravolta allow citizens and employees to access a wide range of vehicles for various occasions, from last mile deliveries to digital vehicle sharing or even corporate fleets. This makes it easier for individuals and groups to move around in a more sustainable manner.  

If you want to discover the latest available solutions that can help your city shift towards a more sustainable model, then you can’t miss our second issue of the Solutions Catalogue!  

Raptor pilot 2 programme – now open for applications

Cities from Regional Innovation Scheme countries are searching for startups and SMEs to help them solve critical urban mobility issues over a six-month period in the second half of this year.

Through the Raptor Pilot 2 programme , Riga, Tallinn, Bratislava, Cluj-Napoca, Prague City District 6 and City District 7 will work with the winners to implement agile solutions. Applicants are sought from EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated states.

Each of the cities identified specific challenges that can be addressed in a short period of time. Applicants are invited to help the cities to:

  • promote active mobility while combating the effects of climate change
  • improve the reliability of public transport
  • make micro-mobility more attractive in winter
  • design and test wearables for kindergarden-aged children to monitor their movements and increase safety;
  • improve the regulation of e-bikes and scooters to reduce safety risks to pedestrians

EIT Urban Mobility will support the awardees financially, technically, and commercially, to develop and test their solution from July to December 2022. A maximum of six awardees, one per city challenge, will be selected to work on delivering their solution.

The winners will be awarded a prize package worth up to €50,000 to support the development and in-situ testing of their Minimum Viable Product (MVP) solution.

The total package includes cash funding of up to €30,000, technical and business mentoring, and support to market and promote the project. 

Previous winners prove success with Raptor Pilot 1

Winners from the Raptor Pilot 1 programme, which is coming to an end, spoke about their experiences and their partnership with EIT UM.

“We applied for the programme because as an emerging startup in the mobility space, we had been looking for opportunities … to pilot our solution in a city context. The Raptor Pilot 1 programme was the perfect opportunity for us to do this,” said Marco Filippi, chief executive officer and founder of Volvero, who worked with Tour and Taxis in Brussels.

“One of the main challenges we encountered [was] lack of funding and concrete stakeholder support from municipalities … EIT UM, through this pilot programME, has been able to provide us with the needed funding, collaboration with major stakeholders, and the exposure that the affiliation with the Raptor programme brings,” he added.

EIT Urban Mobility also helped to coordinate with municipality partners and to finance ASIMOB, a tech startup that monitors the conditions of road infrastructure, who used their prize to trial their pilot in the seaside town of Cunit in Catalonia, Spain. They tested the viability of their idea in a small municipality and learned how to work with various government departments to overcome issues. “We had some technical challenges due to the installation of the system in police vehicles that required adaptation of some automated processes … [that] required a specific development [sic] by us,” said Ibon Arechalde, chief executive officer and co-founder.

Meanwhile, Ossana Tanachian, co-founder and operations manager at Cédrat Conseil, Toulouse, France, said EIT Urban Mobility had been vital in setting the milestones and KPIs for the project as well as redesigning the scope of the pilot to fit the timeframe and budget, and emphasised funding from EIT Urban Mobility was crucial to achieve their objectives. Cédrat Conseil worked with Toulouse Métropole to solve waste management issues and improve last-mile garbage collection.

To learn more about the Raptor Pilot 2 programme, how to apply, and conditions, please contact raptor@eiturbanmobility.eu. The deadline is 27 May 2022.

Delivers.AI, the first autonomous grocery delivery of the mobility Sandbox in Madrid

Have you imagined the city of the future with a robot that will deliver your groceries?

Madrid Futuro with the City Council has presented the first autonomous delivery robot pilot, Delivers.AI that will be tested in the Villaverde mobility Sandbox, a unique opportunity to position Madrid in the top 10 Smart Cities in the world. Delivers.AI begins with a first phase, before the official implementation starting in January 2022. During this initial phase, the City Council will grant a specific license to test Delivers.AI in Goya location in Madrid with 2 delivery robots delivering Daily 50 orders autonomously.
 
As Ángel Niño, councilor for innovation and entrepreneurship of the Madrid City Council points out, “authorizing proof of concept in a limited area in a few weeks will make us a very attractive point for the delivery robot from all over the world to establish themselves in Madrid”. The company, he continued, “will create jobs and promote the economic development of the district and the entire city.”

Autonomous Robotic Delivery Service from Glovo, Goggo, and Delivers.AI

“Delivers.AI self-driving robotic delivery company has already automized thousands of orders in Europe with its unique autonomous driving and navigation technology. We appreciate the support from Madrid Futuro and together with Glovo and Goggo Network we will explore the opportunities to bring the advantages of contactless delivery to Madrid’s daily life.”
 
“Automated last-mile delivery demand continues to grow across Europe. Not only online order platforms but also smart cities have now taken a great interest in self-driving delivery services. Autonomous delivery has huge potential to improve the life of people in smart cities while helping online order platforms optimize their last-mile logistics and cut down the delivery costs” said Ali Kutay Yarali, Founder & CEO of Delivers.AI
 
For her part, Elisa Caballero, Global Head of Engineering Strategy and Operations at Glovo, assures that “technology and the digital economy represent a great opportunity, especially when they are promoted from public-private collaboration. At Glovo we are proud to be able to join the Madrid Futuro project as a technological partner ”.
 
The Autonomous Robotic Delivery Service will be the first autonomous technology pilot in Spain, designed for city centers. It is a sidewalk autonomous robot, fully electrical, that will move along the sidewalks of the streets within a certain area at the speed of a pedestrian. Once an order is received, the robot will go autonomously to a designated supermarket where it can deposit the order. From there, the robot will make its way to the customer’s building, which will be able to check its position at any time. Once it arrives, the customer will be notified to collect their order.
 
Glovo and Delivers.AI have partnered with Goggo Network. It is one of the last ‘startups’ set up by Martin Varsavsky, who rose to fame as the founder of Jazztel and who is now a well-known investor and entrepreneur, Founder & CEO of Goggo Network in multiple areas such as technology, telecommunications, and even assisted reproduction and fertility. Despite being a very young company, this has not prevented it from raising funding from some of the largest funds in the world. In 2019, he closed a round of 44 million euros which was led by two giants such as the Japanese firm Softbank and the German Axel Springer.
 
Delivers.AI expects to reach 1500 delivery robots at the end of 2022 in Europe and the UK.
