Gadgets for comfort, safety, and the joy of the ride: The very best of the BeRider Hackathon
A variable system for securing packages or luggage, high-tech smart lighting, or a gyroscopic coffee holder. These are just some of the prototypes to emerge from the hackathon. Let’s take a look at the creative teams and their ideas. There is plenty to look forward to, because we are working towards having some of these ideas being put into actual use on BeRider scooters in the near future.
Visit the virtual showroom
ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab and Israeli IT start-up Matter developed a virtual showroom. The new online platform offers customers the opportunity to view and browse vehicles at the dealership as if they were there in person. Tags, videos and audio files provide a plethora of information about each vehicle. The concept is based on a project from Israeli IT company Matter. At the ‘Covid Mobility Race’ hackathon, the ideas and programming competition run by ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab in 2020, the IT start-up took first place with this solution.
Carsharing HoppyGo grew by 81 per cent in 2020
The peer-to-peer car-sharing service HoppyGo, developed and run by ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab in Prague, continued to be a success last year. In 2020, the platform for renting and lending privately owned vehicles recorded numerous new users and saw a corresponding increase in the number of journeys made and the pool of cars available. A recent survey shows that, alongside HoppyGo’s high level of flexibility, users particularly appreciate the convenience and fair prices. ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab has been offering the service in the Czech Republic since 2018.
