      Micro Mobility Idea-Hack

      We establish connectivity between the e-bike and its surroundings and so continue to write the history of the bicycle. New technologies and digitalization pave the way for entirely new mobility solutions and usage concepts for e-bikes and other small, lightweight electric vehicles. Get involved in our micromobility think tank: Develop intelligent, flexible and future-oriented solutions in the field of micromobility.

      Date and time: 5 p.m. on May 23, 2019, to 4:30 p.m. on May 25, 2019

      Location: Nuremberg

      Team: 20 participants (four teams of five)

      Continental will give you €100 toward your travel expenses and will cover food, drink and accommodation. After the event, just send us your travel receipts and we’ll reimburse you. All you need to do is make your own travel arrangements.

      The Challenge in Detail

      The task

      Micromobility: Flexible, intelligent, electrical and connected – these new forms of urban mobility have considerable disruptive potential for rapid, flexible, sustainable and user-oriented mobility.

      In this Ideation Challenge, you will come closer to this innovative topic by means of vastly differing creative methods with the help of “design thinking” coaches. Personal profiles of mobility scenarios and the provision of fundamental background information by our micromobility experts at Continental form the basis for the challenge. You will define user-oriented use-cases for e-bikes and, in so doing, develop creative ideas and solutions for using e-bikes for the mobility of tomorrow - digital, intelligent and connected.

      The main focus here is on developing and deriving innovative ideas by adopting the “design thinking” approach. Design thinking coaches and technical experts will support the teams in the challenge and provide a variety of creative tools for you. You will learn how to apply a “design thinking” process in your team’s task.  Depending on your tastes, various options are available to you for the prototyping phase in the “design thinking” process – ranging from simple tools, Lego Serious Play and 3D printers through to Arduinos and Raspberry Pi.

      We also believe that interdisciplinary teams are the key to real success. Whether your background is in STEM, business studies or social science, everyone can take part in this challenge.

      Skills needed

      Skills needed

      • Creativity and teamwork skills
      • A passion for developments and trends in the field of mobility, micromobility and digitalization as well as sustainable, user-oriented mobility and new user-oriented mobility services
      • A degree or experience in IT, engineering, science, economics or social science – different disciplines are explicitly required for the formation of interdisciplinary teams.
      The Equipment

      All materials required for implementing a “design thinking” approach will be provided. All you have to do is bring your own computer (preferably with Microsoft Office so that you can create presentations).
