komoot GmbH, Berlin
Ordinary navigation solutions guide the user from A to B. However, they neglect the experience along the way.

The user simply enters into his cell phone what he wants to experience on the road and gets an individual route suggestion calculated for his respective location.
Kinexon GmbH, München
Kinexon - With centimeter precision, the Kinexon ONE 3D sensor can determine the movements of people and objects in space: The portable, wireless system measures the activity and body movement of an athlete, for example, and processes this data - both individually and for teams.
