The second European Startup Prize for Mobility (EUSP) has revealed the 10 winning companies in its 2019 awards that are creating a new transport landscape for European travellers. Companies that received the prize in the presence of awards sponsor Prince Albert of Monaco ranged from e-cargo bike manufacturers to autonomous vehicle technology providers.
Das Münchner LiDAR-Unternehmen Blickfeld wurde mit dem Deutschen Innovationspreis in der Kategorie Startup ausgezeichnet. Als große Pluspunkte bewertete die Jury den Innovationsgrad und die Marktchancen der neuen Technologie.
If we had to summarize CES 2019 into one word it would be “autonomous”. Once again, this year’s major focus was on self-driving technology. The North Hall of CES was like a car show in itself, with manufacturers, suppliers and aftermarket electronics companies presenting their latest technologies. All variations could be found: be it driverless concept cars, robo-shuttles, self-driving trucks, ‘pods’ where you can interchange loads and of course, flying taxis. Passengers could even hail an autonomous car ride through the Lyft app throughout CES.
The Munich-based LiDAR start-up Blickfeld has increased its seed funding to $ 10 million. All existing investors Fluxunit – OSRAM Ventures, High-Tech Gründerfonds, Tengelmann Ventures, and Unternehmertum Venture Capital Partners participated in the round. The new financial resources will be used for the first series production and to further strengthen the team.
LiDARs send out rapid pulses of laser light. The pulses hit a surface, are reflected and return to the LiDAR. A detector then measures each pulse’s time of flight. Thereby, the LiDAR can calculate the distance between itself and the target with high accuracy. By repeating this in quick succession the LiDAR builds up a high-definition ‘point cloud’ of the scene it is measuring.
“You made it. You fought. You convinced. You deserve it.” Those words are written on the DAHO.AM start-up challenge’s winner certificate. And we are beyond proud to have them hanging in our office.
At the 3rd BMVI Startup Pitch on July 5, 2018, Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer honored innovative business ideas for mobility 4.0. Previously, Blickfeld and the other 19 finalists had the opportunity to present their ideas and business models to a top-class jury at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
Blickfeld is the winner of the Autonomous Traffic & Logistics Innovation Award 2018
In the run-up to the conference, 15 international start-ups with the most promising solutions in the field of autonomous transport and logistics were selected by a top-class jury. On the day of the event, they presented their products and services to the expert audience in 3-minute pitches on stage and in the innovation exhibition. The audience award also went to Blickfeld. A total of 56 startups from Europe, Israel and the USA applied for participation in the Innovation Forum and the award.
