  • Pilot your Mobility Solution in Copenhagen

    Call for Pilots: The future of biking in Copenhagen.



    Winners will be announced at the 'Copenhagen | Barcelona | Kaohsiung Summit on Service Innovation' on November 25th.

    Copenhagen has one of the world’s most ambitious local climate policies, striving to become a zero-emission community by the year 2025. To achieve this commitment, the city already has put several measures and lines of investment into motion, actively collaborating with companies and technology experts.

    Together with Living Labs Global, the City of Copenhagen invites you to present innovative mobility solutions that help to achieve the goal of integrating Bicycles fully into a new intelligent and integrated transport system for the city. Already today, more than 55% of residents in Copenhagen use the bicycle daily, creating opportunities for new applications of IT in entertainment and safety, but also to address the several barriers that continue to exist between the excellent public transport system and bicycle uses.

    As a result, Copenhagen is inviting companies and organisations from around the world to present their solutions for a pilot to evaluate impact of new systems, policies, technologies or planning tools to achieve the goal of an attractive and fully integrated inter-modal transport system, incorporating the large percentage of bicycle usage.

    Solutions can address, but do not need to be limited to, the following challenges:

    Can bike paths be smarter and indicate dangers such as frost, indicate congestion or incorporate sensors to monitor activities and respond to usage needs and link to traffic light systems offering green waves for cyclists?

    Can technology in bicycles such as health sensors, location information, theft protection, entertainment and fitness monitors be applied for entertainment, wellbeing, security and other purposes?

    Can mobile services link bicycles and riders to social networks, provide news and updates, to pre-book bikes or reserve parking, to plan routes and other activities?

    Can we integrate bicycle rides to get to destinations with other modes of public transport to give more inter-modal options for commuters?

    Can we improve bicycle parking around key intersections and meeting points?

    Can the health and well-being impact of bicycles be maximised and monitored in the city?

    How can we improve security and safety in relation to bicycles?

    Can we invent intelligent or smarter clothing to deal with different weather conditions and at the same time integrate into daily activities?

    Can bicycles replace "service vehicles" for craftsmen in the inner city?

    What can Copenhagen do for bicycle tourism?

    The Process of Applying for a Pilot is simple and consists of the following steps:

    Submit or update your Showcase for free to publish a short description of your solution. Submission Deadline: September 30th 2010.

    Choose "Apply for a pilot of my Showcase in Copenhagen in autumn 2010".

    The City of Copenhagen and Living Labs Global will announce results at the Copenhagen | Barcelona | Kaohsiung Summit on Service innovation in Cities on November 25th (selected solutions will be informed November 9th). You will receive a short report on the evaluation results.

    You will get the opportunity to present and exhibit your solution at the  Copenhagen | Barcelona | Kaohsiung Summit on Service Innovation to an audience of 150 professionals from cities and innovative companies around the world.
