Track B: Internet of Things (IoT)

The easier information is exchanged in the supply chain, the more intelligent and faster it becomes. The “Internet of Things” will revolutionize the transport of people and goods in tomorrow’s cities. Go for track B with your concept linking cargo systems, freight and software.


Indications for inspiration:

  • Open onboard systems
  • Architecture that allows for easy 3rd party integration of digital components;
  • Comprehensive sensor IoT solution for tracking conditions of vehicle payload;
  • Fleet optimized navigation routing for delivery of goods;
  • Cooperative intelligent transport systems;
  • Route optimization;
  • Virtual (voice) assistant;
  • Integration of end-customer within the overall delivery process to create new values;
  • Intelligent devices/systems to identify, locate and track transported goods or people;
  • Platforms that enable an active interaction between seller, customer, deliverer and anyone else involved in the last mile transportation process.


If your idea does not fit to any of the three tracks please have a look at the accelerator program Startup Autobahn, in which Daimler AG is also involved.

We are looking forward to working together with you!
