Future Mobility Camp Stuttgart 2015

The 5th event of the future mobility camp series took place this Friday. A welcome occasion for networking with the regional experts from industry partners, universities and public projects. Needless to say that it was a great chance to meet my former car2go and moovel colleagues as well.

After being hosted in Berlin and Dresden, the Future Mobility Camp was the first time in Stuttgart. Head of the initiative and organizer Martin Randelhoff kicked off with a fish-bowl setup. Stephan Rammler (Transportation Design & Social Sciences at Institute of Transportation Design Braunschweig) joined him, initiating a vivid session on future mobility aspects and influences.

The opening was followed by sessions from and with audience – 15 talks or presentations in 4 tracks. I would have loved a little more level of detail or the continued momentum from the introduction talk in there. Nevertheless, great networking and something I’m looking forward to visit next time in Dresden or Berlin.

You find a sketch note of that first part attached to this post.

Happy Birthday car2go Berlin!

Getting everything set up for April 26th meant a new challenge for our team. We had rolled out 8 cities before, but with 1000 smart vehicles, the fleet was more than double the size of any other car2go city before. Everything was prepared perfectly by the rollout team, people from every department supported the tight plan – and we made it! From 5 hubs we distributed 200 vehicles (each) in 2,5 days.

The first anniversary is a good opportunity to pull up the flickr photo set again. Enjoy!
