Cargobike innovations Andrea Casalotti, K4RGO
3 drivers / 4 themes Drivers: Air quality -> ZEVs only Liveability -> Roads for people 1st Smart cities Themes: Box size Containerization Software integration Electric assist
Box size Speed/manoevrability vs minimize empty trips vs cost of vehicle 1-2 cubic metres Materials/security Stress on frame Examples: Cycles Maximus, La Reine, Vrachtfiets, UPS/FedEx
Containerization Challenge: make the trans modal transfer as efficient as possible Nihola - Danske Post Bento-Box The cargobike as container vs CyclesMaximus Addendum: SkyCycle
Software innovation Open Source PoD platform Traveling salesman algorithms ⇒ No need to reinvent the wheel in every city. LaMiLo must take the lead.
Electric assist Need to change 250W max. Recharging times will come down Solar charge - NTSNTS
