Innovation Talk Israel - Smart Mobility

SHALOM & Welcome to our Innovation Talk Israel – Smart Mobility in Sustainable Cities!

In this Talk we took a ride into the Smart Mobility Bubble in the Israeli start-up scene and got interesting impulses from this Sphere. Almost all major German car manufacturers are active in Israel in order to benefit from the innovative power of the start-up scene there and to incorporate hi-tech elements into the ongoing development of future Smart Mobility solutions.

In Israel are more than 600 Israeli start-ups in the Smart Mobility field. The sensational large investments in Mobileye (2017) and Moovit (2020) have recently caused a stir and have shown the immense potential that technological developments from Israel can offer.

In this Innovation Talk Israel we provide exciting insights into new ideas on mobility and mobility infrastructure. We present selected mobility start-ups from Israel and address the following subjects:

- Electrifying Roads and solving charging challenges for governments, cities and users.

- new takes to Cyber secure issues for connected vehicles.

- Novell electro micro car, that solves urban mobility challenges.
