Blog 6 Mobility Masterpieces to Keep on your Radar in 2022
As we continue through a technological era that past generations only dreamed of, keeping up with every tech debut feels near impossible. More and more these days it feels like tech advancements make their way into our lives before we realize they had even been thought of. It’s exciting to see tech services being normalized into the modern lifestyle so effortlessly. Like, who even remembers a time before DoorDash? In this blog post, we’ll go over six products and services that will make life even easier in 2022 and the years ahead.

 

1) Beam

Industry: Mobility Services

The first company on our list is a Singapore-based startup that focuses on e-scooters. Its mission is to promote shared mobility in the Asia-Pacific region. Similar to companies in the US like Bird and Lyft, Beam provides lightweight, customized scooters for commuters as an alternative to short-distance rides. Made from aviation-grade aluminum, these scooters aim to reduce traffic congestion and gas emissions caused by traditional transportation. Easy-access ride-sharing, safety, reliability, and durability are all at the center of Beam’s vision for commuters. Cars are great, but not always necessary. Beam is an excellent example of technology making our lives easier and safer in the long term.

 

2) Street Sense

Industry: Internet of Things and Sensor Technology

StreetSense is a new Dutch product that digitally maps every street online. StreetSense’s platform senses various aspects of transportation infrastructure as well as the flow of people and goods through the networks. Their device is manufactured to continuously monitor traffic and road surface conditions. Each StreetSense device contains five sensors and a power bank with the potential of collecting and transmitting live data for up to 3 years. The device makes use of IoT connections for data transfer and utilizes minimal energy. With as many car collisions that take place every day, StreetSense has the potential to save lives by informing drivers and perhaps even autonomous vehicles of their surroundings in detail. No more news reporters shouting details of a local traffic jam from the side of the road. Well… that still might happen. But we won’t have to rely on them when planning our commute.

 

3) Gluon

Industry: Intelligent Diagnostics

A US-based startup, Gluon provides a platform for a network of interconnected vehicles. With this program, individuals and businesses can monitor, track, tune, and diagnose vehicle issues. Using IoT, cloud technology, AI, and Blockchain to connect automobiles with each other, customers can self-diagnose their vehicles, schedule repairs, tune their vehicles for optimal performance, and regulate their usage metrics. If that’s not futuristic enough for you, Gluon also accepts cryptocurrency as an alternative form of payment. They even have a token of their own!

 

4) Holomatics

Industry: Autonomous Mobility

This autonomous driving service is a startup company from China. They provide software and hardware platforms, multi-sensors integration, and intelligent decision-making for ultimate automated vehicle capabilities. Holomatics offers vehicle wire control, multi-sensor technology, and upper-layer automatic driving algorithm modules. In simpler terms, their technology is prepared to maneuver any driving scenario including unexpected roadblocks and nasty weather conditions. Pretty neat!

 

5) Rapid DMLS

Industry: 3D Printing

3D printing may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to mobility tech, but Rapid DMLS is a highly useful product for modern mobility, especially when it comes to aerospace tech. A startup out of India, Rapid DMLS uses direct metal laser sintering technology to 3D print various lightweight metals and serves as a manufacturer for multiple industry types. With significantly reduced weights, the company is still able to provide parts that meet strength requirements for functional technologies. In addition to the printing itself, Rapid DMLS has plans to include post- 3D printing and inspection to their list of services.

 

6) Skyway (Obviously!)

Industry: Autonomous Mobility and Air Management

Speaking of aerospace technology, we have to put a plug in for ourselves! Skyway is a US startup with a focus on air traffic management and automated urban services. Essentially, it’s Skyway’s goal to make drone delivery a possibility within the next decade. With next-generation air traffic control software, enhanced aircraft communications, and municipal partnerships, this startup is prepared to lead the industry towards a future we’ve all dreamed of. If you’re reading this blog, chances are you are up to date on the strides Skyway and its partners are making within the urban air market. If not, consider following us on social media so you can be one of the first people to have your takeout delivered to your door by a drone.
