OUR FOCUS CATEGORIES
In the application for Batch 10, our partners are looking for innovations in Electromobility, Autonomous Enablers, Connectivity, Sustainability, and Security.
Application is open between August 22 and October 17.
Electromobility is bringing drivers new opportunities with a new powertrain, new battery management systems, and onboard power management solutions. Transitioning to new electric vehicles can also be challenging, as it involves a whole new connected ecosystem of charging solutions, charging experiences, and charging infrastructure.
To make this journey as easy as possible for society, we are looking for solutions in battery cell technology, battery safety, battery management systems, thermal management, modular architecture, light mixed material, efficient aerodynamics of EV cars, and wheel shapes and motor drive systems. We are also interested in reliable digital twins for components and systems, in prescriptive and predictive maintenance, and in various driving environments to enable accurate simulations to work on route planning, optimization, and life-cycle predictability. In addition, we are working with grid services, energy storage systems, and charging solutions.
The first unsupervised autonomous vehicles on the road will have a limited operational design domain (ODD). Examples are semi- and entirely confined areas such as ports, mines, quarries, divided roads, during daylight and with ideal weather conditions, and so on. Gradually, the ODD will expand as the software matures and new hardware becomes available.
We are interested in solutions that can accelerate our expansion of the autonomous vehicles’ ODD, both from a software and hardware perspective. Relevant examples are: better and more efficient AI, driver monitoring systems (DMS), advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), fleet learning, automatic annotation, un- or semi-supervised learning, faster and more efficient safety validation and verification, sensor fusion, higher fidelity simulation, regional adaptation, new or improved sensors, as well as faster and more efficient computation.
Mobile communication with vehicles increases in importance as new services emerge, such as autonomous and intelligent driving. All these new services require vehicles to be connected to a cloud, and 5G is a key enabler to ensure a high data rate and low latency. The automotive industry plays an instrumental part in future mobility and has the potential to create more efficient, sustainable, and safer mobility systems. 3GPP standardization for interoperability, global scalability, and resilience in cellular networks will become increasingly important.
We are looking for startups with an understanding of connectivity and mobile network assets applied in future collaborative and automated mobility systems, for example, automotive cloud solution innovations, connected car ecosystem for better commuting/parking/charging/logistics, connected collective perception, and digital twin for better traffic safety, to mention a few.
Innovation is key to creating the sustainable societies of tomorrow. Current and future mobility demand sustainable solutions in a wide range of areas, and MobilityXlab’s partner companies want to be at the forefront in this field, reaching climate neutrality both as companies and in their products and services.
We are looking for sustainable solutions in several areas throughout the existing or future value chain – ranging from platform solutions for climate neutrality, supply chain traceability, tracking, reduction and removal of emissions, and pollution and energy efficiency. We are also interested in sustainable and lightweight materials, circular methodologies and applications, solutions for increased modularity, and other concepts that are relevant when building climate-neutral vehicles and transport solutions at a fast pace.
As vehicles become more connected and automated, and with new regulations to comply with, there is a need to address the potential risks of cyber-attacks targeting the data and software of connected cars and protect them from unauthorized access or manipulation. In addition, there is a need to improve the robustness of the vehicles against adversarial attack vectors.
From V2X communication, control algorithms, software, sensors and infotainment connectivity to over-the-air (OTA) software updates, MobilityXlab is looking for security solutions in data security and integrity, privacy-preserving solutions, secure transactions, vehicle data accessibility, regulation conformity, software security from design to updates, adversarial and cyber threats protection.
