The Challenge in Detail

The challenge

For centuries the use of cargo carriers has eased the burden on humans. In the past few years, digitalization has brought about efficiency improvements that were not previously possible. Show us that further improvements are possible! Work in a team to draw up innovative solutions to optimize transport systems.

Today’s methods encompass e-bikes and micro vehicles as well as the deployment of delivery robots. The challenge will see your team presented with a list of the requirements for a delivery service as well as the solutions that Continental currently offers in this field. Work with your team to expand this catalog so that the company is in the best possible position to meet the requirements of the future.

Use this as a basis to work together with your team to develop a general concept for the “final stretch.” After evaluating the ideas, your team should develop a rapid prototype of a smart micro e-cargo, test it and optimize it.

The makers

Do you have a passion for technology and the current hot topics of smart micro e-cargo and e-bikes? Are you a creative team player with excellent social skills? Then you’re in exactly the right place!
