ŠKODA AUTO is one of the main backers of the Mobility Innovation Hub. An agency of the Czech government is currently preparing this platform, based on the principle of a public-private partnership. The hub aims to encourage large companies, start-ups, universities, other scientific institutions and public authorities to work closely together when implementing innovative mobility projects. The initiative offers the opportunity for great knowledge to be bundled and shared, and thus to further strengthen the competitiveness of the Czech automotive industry through global innovation in the future. The programme is coordinated by Czech government agency CzechInvest.
ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab has played host to the global online ‘COVID Mobility Race’ hackathon. The theme of this year’s ideas competition, which took place from 4 to 7 June 2020, set the tone: the event was dedicated to the current challenges facing the automotive industry as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. How can a vehicle be bought and delivered whilst following stringent social distancing measures? What options are there for car buyers to virtually view their dream car? And what role will digital mobility services play in the future? 52 teams from 19 countries came up with surprising and innovative answers to these questions. The Israeli team from high-tech company Matter beat its competitors with 3D virtual showroom technology and will now be supported by ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab. Furthermore, the team members have the chance of collaboration with the Czech car manufacturer’s innovation lab.
ŠKODA AUTO has been providing comprehensive and unbureaucratic support in combating the spread of the coronavirus for multiple weeks. Now it’s time to take stock: How has the support been received so far? And how far have the vehicles featuring the #SKODAAUTOpomaha slogan and BeRider e-scooters traveled in the process? What stage in the process is the donation of the 100 ŠKODA OCTAVIAs at? How many respirators have already been produced by ŠKODA’s 3D printers? The answers are revealed below.
At ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, we create solutions for the mobility of the future. We operate a range of mobility services, and now, during a time of emergency measures due to a new coronavirus disease, we have decided to offer these services to help where they are most needed now. It is necessary to ensure the necessary supply of food and medicines, especially for those who are most vulnerable - the elderly and sick people.
ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab and the city of Brno have agreed on a far-reaching partnership for projects to promote sustainable mobility. In a memorandum of understanding (MoU), they agreed to introduce the BeRider e-scooter sharing service – which is a success in Prague – in Brno too. What’s more, as a public-private partnership, the city of Brno and ŠKODA’s innovation centre are pushing ahead with other projects as well. The aim is to expand and simplify the range of sustainable urban mobility services and to incorporate them even better into everyday life.
The striking green BeRider e-scooters are returning to Prague’s city centre at the start of March. Following a successful pilot phase, the e-scooter sharing company, launched by ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab in 2019, is increasing its fleet from its current 150 e-scooters to 700. In addition, the service is entering this year’s season with even more benefits for customers. In future, it will be possible to book the e-scooters via the free Citymove mobility app and they will be available in an even larger area of the city.
