In addition to founding and managing Stegmann and Company, Nina Stegmann is a consultant and co-founder of the start-up eStarling.io out of the University of Stuttgart in the field of micromobility, autonomous driving and artificial intelligence.
The start-up is embedded in a project for sustainable mobility called Mobility Living Lab of the University of Stuttgart.
Researchers at the University of Stuttgart are currently developing a self-driving e‑scooter. This is due to be integrated into the e‑scooter rental system on the campus. The e‑scooters use a modern control system to drive to the next port of call without the need for a driver. A distribution algorithm optimizes the availability of the e‑scooters on the campus. A self-driving e‑scooter will replace ten normal e‑scooters in an e‑scooter rental system.
