Lab1886 is an independent innovation lab within Daimler AG. It is where new business ideas, including outside the core business, are identified, incubated and brought to market maturity. The aim is to proceed faster from the idea to the product or business model. By realising a portfolio of innovations, Lab1886 helps Daimler AG to secure a sustainable and profitable future. Lab1886 combines the best of the start-up and corporate worlds. Lab1886 allows employees to work in a focused way in flat hierarchies and a creative atmosphere. The innovation lab operates at four locations on three continents: Stuttgart and Berlin in Germany, Beijing in China and Atlanta in the USA.
13 sessions, ten of them in the Lab1886 Truck, show Daimler's innovation spectrum. This is where Lab1886 offers a stage for many of the Group's initiatives. The variety of topics ranges from the use of artificial intelligence in tomorrow's world via voice control as new User Interaction (UI) to the linking of Smart Home and Smart Mobility. A further focal point of these sessions is the work of Lab1886. For example, Michael Baumann is giving a talk on his journey from Group employee to the founder of a start-up.
Highlights include the round table with Susanne Hahn and the journalist and publicist Christoph Keese on opportunities and risks in Germany's digitisation. Then there is the panel with Søren Halskov Nissen, Daimler Mobility Services GmbH, Yannic Heiling, Daimler AG, and Claus Christmann, Robert Bosch GmbH, on cross-company alliances and their advantages in the development of fully automated driving. The appearance by tech entrepreneur and Lab1886 Brand Ambassador Guy Kawasaki will also be exciting. He is talking about the art of innovation as the engine and driving force of progress.
Alongside the Lab1866 Truck, Daimler AG will also be presenting itself with its own interactive stand in the outside area. This is where projects are being presented and Lab1886 is demonstrating in the new re:cruiting area of the re:publica that it is an attractive employer shaping the future of mobility and using the opportunities provided by digitisation.
