re:publica 15 – discover the future of mobility.

Looking for the future together.

re:publica is a conference on digital society that has taken place in Berlin each year since 2007. This year’s conference, taking place between 5 and 7 May, offers presentations and workshops on the topic “Finding Europe”. Over 6,000 participants from all sectors from across the world are heading to Berlin to discuss technological innovations, Internet policy, education, culture and many other topics.

For Daimler, looking for something and finding it are intimately connected – especially when it comes to questions about the mobility of the future. Daimler is always looking for innovative concepts that support our big goal: providing security and comfort in order to increase quality of life in the world of future mobility. At re:publica, we want to look ahead to this future with attendees and discuss robots, voice and gesture control and autonomous vehicles.

re:think mobility: human or machine.

That’s why at the subconference re:think mobility we will be investigating new concepts and questioning the status quo. We expect exciting sessions and discussions that will cover far more than just the automotive sector.

For instance, how humans and machines will communicate in the shared space of the future, how society can facilitate this coexistence and whether gesture and voice control could allow technology to be used in a more intuitive manner.

International experts join the discussion.

Last year, Daimler’s re:think mobility subconference was extremely well-received: re:publica attendees and international experts considered topics such as mobile soundscapes, the hybridisation of the digital and physical worlds, and mobility innovations for people with special needs.

This is now the fourth year in a row that Daimler has been a partner of re:publica, and we look forward to welcoming strong women and well-travelled men to the second re:think mobility subconference. Come on board with us and begin a breath-taking voyage into the future, accompanied by engineers, future studies researchers and robotics experts.
