The Toyota Mobility foundation (TMF) has recently revealed the Sixteen cutting-edge solution ideas as semi-finalists for the City Architecture for Tomorrow Challenge (CATCH).
The TMF had launched CATCH in February 2020 with a global call for dynamic, intelligent and data-driven solutions to address mobility and city planning challenges in Kuala Lumpur.
During the application period which ended 30th June 2020, more than 90 global teams submitted their innovative, deep tech ideas to reimagine city planning through the effective usage of data.
After careful consideration, TMF has identified the following sixteen teams as semi-finalists, best suited to CATCH’s problem statement and the five assessment criteria of creativity, desirability, feasibility, sustainability and technicality.
These teams will be asked to further develop their ideas into proofs of concept (POC) and at this stage will each receive a grant of up to $5,000 for financial support. Furthermore, they will have access to datasets from public and private agency partners to CATCH which will help them identify daily mobility challenges in Kuala Lumpur.
Pras Ganesh, Program Director of TMF commented: “We are thrilled to announce 16 world-class ideas that represent the data-driven future of sustainable and efficient city planning and mobility. We look forward to working with these semi-finalists to advance their ideas towards realistic and beneficial proofs of concept.”
