  • Added page 6 on energy efficiencies compared to other transport modes. The data is based on Helsinki, Finland public transport data (your specifics may vary, i.e. trams vary a lot between cities). Data is based on average vehicle occupancy - have slides also for peak use, one person per vehicle and street-level congested scenario.

Benefits2-3 person cabin - right size capable of operating also integrates well with existingfor individual use during floods (to 2-3 meters public transport modes (s.a. height) Bus Rapid Transit or metro)group mode for up to 9people capable of routing through also usable as a stand-alone parks, forests, wetlands without community / campus networkno timetables; no interim disturbing wildlife or park usersstops more comfortable than using a minimal construction time and private carnormal speed 45km/h effort fully self-sustained (electricity,fast mode (no intersections) dynamic track; can be communication)70km/h dismantled and re-erected elsewhere designed for resiliencestations always at pedestrian (accidents, catastrophies s.a.level (or within buildings) no external electric contacts -> earthquakes) safeclimbs 0..90° effortlessly the most energy efficient means service based business model = of motorised transportationno protrusions in the track; easy purchasing, proven quality (combines the benefits of railideal for snow, sand and throughout the operations and light vehicles)durability

  11. 11. Current state Concept feasibility Business contacts CAD modeling Simulator sw (alpha) Pilot customer development Finnish government contactsWe have 2-3 eligible pilot cases being discussed with local transport planners andcities. Also, the Finnish government is starting a ‘Smart cities’ project in spring 2013focusing on part-financing 3-5 world-leading pilot cases. We aim to be one of them.A patent application was filed in 2010 but it expired in lack of funds. However, wehave clearance that the current design is not offending anyone’s patents.
  12. 12. Why Finland?Great talent and business - good educated workforce (software, automation, machinery, project management) - many global leaders founded in Finland (Kone, Cargotec, Ruukki, Rovio, ...) - small country where people generally ”know each other” - good cleantech brand globallyEmerging startup mentality - Lean Startup mentality is on the rise - society under stress from change = looking for new and more efficient ways - lot of construction going on in the Helsinki region (most within EU cities)Government support - government agency Tekes launching ‘Smart Cities’ program for 2013-20 - well established public/private partnerships - subsidies for piloting and rail-bound public transport Challenges: Finance infrastructure especially for investments of 100k..1M eur is lacking.
  13. 13. Pilot 13-15M Funding needs Most funding would come from government funds paid to the customer. This allows us to test also the business model. Proto 2-5M Seed Launch 150-300k 60k 20 20 20 20 20 20 2020 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 10
