E-Bike Conference 2016

Le 1er juillet 2016, dans les Alpes de Kitzbühel, Autriche. ABS, roues motrices, bruits artificiels, solutions de vélos partage, systèmes de production automatisés... Qu'est ce que tout ceci implique pour les pedelecs ?


The key technologies for future pedelecs: ABS, all-wheel drive, sounds, sharing systems, highly automated production processes. What do these mean for pedelecs?

And with the e:bikefestival running from the 2nd to 3rd July 2016, you could find your perfect pedelec.
ABS, all-wheel drive, sounds, sharing systems, highly automated production processes. Participants enjoyed the worldwide exclusive opportunity of a glimpse into the future of pedelecs, today.

Customer wish fulfilment as the key to market growth

What will make the pedelec the next worldwide must-have, following in the footsteps of the fridge, colour TV, computer and mobile phone? A brief overview of the relevant functionalities which will assist the pedelec to market breakthrough. Customer wish fulfilment as the key to acceptance by the whole population. Speakers were Dr. Dipl.-Phys. Frieder Herb (Concepts and Strategy, ExtraEnergy Test) and Hannes Neupert (Chairman, ExtraEnergy e.V. and Executive Director, EnergyBus e.V.)


Self-driving pedelecs – what does that mean for pedelec sharing systems?

What is public bike sharing and what is the significance of sharing schemes for tourism? Which models are available now, and what does the future hold?

The speaker was Niclas Schubert (movelo, New Electric Mobility).


Pedelec, speak to me … when pedelecs find a voice

Silence is golden, and talk is cheap – one might think that this would also apply to pedelecs. But psycho-acoustic researcher Dr. Friedrich Blutner would disagree. For several years he has been researching the correct sounds for every conceivable – and apparently inconceivable – everyday object: washing machines, car doors, beer bottles, sausages, lipsticks and now for several years also pedelecs. He will be presenting an interim report on his research results for the SAVE project, sponsored by the Federal Research Ministry. Following this presentation you will be sensitised to disruptive sounds you were previously unaware of hearing, and to harmonic sounds which give the pedelec its individual character, and which could also develop brand identity.

The speaker was Dr. Friedrich E. Blutner (Synotec Psychoinformatik GmbH).


The ABC of added functionality, and its reflection in consumer use

AWD, ABS, ASR, GPS, GSM, RFID, HD, EB, USB, LED ... technologies. Why do we need them all for cycling? Speakers were Jakob Lauhoff (Brake ForceOne), Peter Broghammer (Director, Business Development, E-Mobility, Marquardt GmbH) and Teet Praks (COMODULE).


Industry 4.0 – what does it mean for the cycle industry?

Today, small-scale, highly labour intensive production dominates in the cycle industry. But the future of industrial production is elsewhere, in integrated and highly automated production processes, which simultaneously permit high levels of customisation, high quality, low lead-times and low prices. At the heart of Industry 4.0 are standardised interfaces which permit a wide variety of modules to be combined without difficulty into numerous configurations.

Round table discussion with industry figures.


The exhibits

For each theme exhibits were on hand to try out. These exhibits were: a prototype cycle with ABS braking system; pedelecs with all-wheel drive; coModule prototype of a self-driving pedelec, and a U-cart from Passionmobility Taiwan, plus two pedelec frames which can speak and sing (achieved purely through the use of an actuator which induces the frames to vibrate).

In the subsequent evening event, participants were given an overview of the day’s programme and a concluding summary from Hannes Neupert (Chairman, ExtraEnergy e.V. and Executive Director, EnergyBus e.V.).
