ZKW are working with startups toward a goal of improved safety, increased comfort, and more flexibility for their customers. Selected startups will participate in a kickoff event planned for this September with industry professionals from the ZKW Group. Participants will pitch their ideas and talk with ZKW’s experts. The event will take place near Vienna, Austria.
The Partnership Program Drive Light & Sight Edition 2020 centres around two main focus areas:
• Accurate Sensor Data
ZKW are looking for solutions to increase the confidence level of sensor data at all times, including sensor cleaning, component coating, designs that avoid particle collection; all-weather suitability of sensors; calibration & validation, lidar sensors, and hybrid solutions.
• Supplemental Lamps
ZKW are seeking new lighting systems that can be integrated into existing infrastructure such as CHMSLs, turn indicators, DRLs, and taillights, as well as solutions that enrich existing lamps with additional features and whole new lighting systems around the car.
Up to four innovative teams will establish direct contact with ZKW’s team of experts and, in addition, share a total of €30,000 in equity-free prize money.
