Proprietary hardware and algorithms, and processes at lower temperatures. To find out more, here is the official website.
ONO, a German startup based in Berlin that offers clean and sustainable, as well as very eccentric transport solutions for urban areas. One vehicle in particular caught my attention: it's called PAT, an acronym for Pedal Assisted Transporter, and it looks like a locker on wheels.

Safe and accessible mobility
N-Vibe, a French startup that has created vibrating GPS bracelets for blind or visually impaired people. An app and two bracelets that are activated to "direct" the path on routes without problems. Brilliant in its Spartan simplicity.
Global transportation more efficient
Everty, a sustainable mobility startup based in Sydney that has developed an innovative charging software for electric vehicles. A sort of ecosystem that includes everything from mechanisms for connecting charging stations and cars to management programs to eliminate drivers' downtime and guarantee profits for station owners.
