Start Alliance Berlin: Future Mobility


Start Alliance Berlin: Future Mobility

Transport, Mobility and Logistics in Berlin-Brandenburg boasts more than 17,000 businesses employing approximately 199,000 persons in the markedly industrial automotive sector, in the fields of aerospace technology, rail transport technology and in the crosscutting fields of logistics and intelligent transport systems.

Berlin's strength in the digital economy has meant that major players in the automotive industry and a number of start-ups are developing new ideas for electric mobility in a large number of on-going projects. Topics such as artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, Car2X communication, and self-driving vehicles are increasingly playing an important role, with the potential of bringing fundamental changes to urban transport.

Berlin offers excellent conditions for testing new concepts in such fields as electrical logistics, networked micro mobility with new, smaller vehicles, and innovative charging technologies.
