EDAG CITYBOT ROADMAP
Our plan for the future and the steps towards its realisation
WORLD PREMIERE OF EDAG CITYBOT AT THE IAA 2019 PRESS CONFERENCE
EDAG’s 18th concept car was presented to the public for the first time at 9.30 a.m. on 11 September as part of the IAA press conference. This time, however, it was not “just” a concept car, but a completely new mobility concept.
After the press spokesman Mr. Christoph Horvath raised the question, how a whole concept can fit under a sheet, this secret was revealed by the CEO Mr. Cosimo de Carlo. Then EDAG CityBot Concept & Product Owner Mr. Johannes Barckmann delivered the interesting technical facts about the EDAG CityBot and also had a surprise: EDAG CityBot wins the prestigious prize of the Automotive Brand Contest “Best of the Best” in the category “New Mobility”.

IOTA Untangled-Podcast Episode 17
Strong projects need strong partners. In order to make future mobility in cities sustainable, we work together with IOTA both in the EDAG CityBot environment and within the trive.park app.
In the Untangeld podcast, our mobility experts Alexander Sussemilch and Johannes Barckmann reveal more about the cooperation and joint implemented solutions.
ACQUIRING AND LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE:
THE EDAG CITYBOT SEES, UNDERSTANDS AND INTERACTS
Within the context of our EDAG CityBot mobility concept, our AI experts develop intelligent software for various functions.
See-understand-Interact: the EDAG CityBot is an innovative platform that combined various AI models and architectures.
The areas our teams focus on include neural networks in the fields of computer vision, text and speech processing, path planning, swarm intelligence and maintenance. Our competence, which is growing constantly, combines this entire technological know-how in our EDAG CityBot.
SMART CITY: SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY CONCEPTS THAT
FOCUS ON, DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT THE SMART CITIZEN.
The cities of tomorrow need efficient, scalable and environmentally friendly mobility solutions. These have to meet the needs of urban development and increasing traffic volumes – but first and foremost of people and their needs.
Our smart city experts have accumulated decades of expertise in the industry and automotive sector, and have a great deal of know-how in in the handling of complex processes and the profitable use of large amounts of data. They are involved in the development of the latest technologies all around the world, and therefore able to provide city managers and local authorities with the very best advice. This knowledge also enriches the EDAG CityBot mobility & traffic concept.
In the development of mobility & digitalisation concepts and their implementation, our teams are working on:
- Mobility hubs for cities
- Smart people learning platforms & blended learning
- Automated driving events and their project support
- Intermodal transport advice and planning (e.g. for regional e-shuttle fleets)
- Traffic flow simulation and control
- Virtual and real test tracks for future mobility
