On October 27, Alexander Mirnig and Thomas Grah attended the 2nd BAIKA conference „mobilität querdenken“ in Munich, Germany.

The conference was an interesting get-together between industry (established and startups), academia, and governmental institutions, with the aim of bringing these parties together for potential collaborations.

The talks at “Bayern Innovativ – mobilität querdenken” were mainly focusing on the challenges of the automotive industries and mobility enterprises, which evolve with the so called “mega trends”:

  • Urbanization
  • Sharing economy
  • Autonomous driving
  • Always connected society
  • Accessownership

Although electric mobility was omnipresent in nearly all talks, it was mainly presented as a solution, not a trend.

Alexander and Thomas also presented the Car Interaction Lab in the networking sessions.
