Spyce – Social Mobility
SPYCE is an urban hitch-hiking start-up by Movebis. The SPYCE team consists of experts in UX design, APP development, automotive and marketing. We have completed the first version for iOS & Android and we are now planning our initial investment round.
The biggest problem for drivers and passengers are spontaneity and flexibility. 83% of single drivers say that they prefer to drive alone because of the flexibility, although they consider this a waste of energy and would like to have alternatives.
Movebis has recognised that flexibility and spontaneity are necessary requirements for shared urban mobility.
That is why we are developing SPYCE. With SPYCE Movebis “invents and urbanises” hitchhiking – which today we can describe more aptly as social mobility. With “urban hitchhiking” Movebis combines spontaneity as well as flexibility and comfort.
Solution & Innovation
What makes SPYCE unique is the spontaneity, flexibility and comfort that the platform offers drivers and passengers through the use of predictive functions based on artificial intelligence. In addition to technological implementation, behavioural, psychological aspects play a decisive role in the acceptance of the transformation of urban mobility.
SPYCE integrates seamlessly into our everyday life and gets to know the user’s habits and that saves entering destinations for drivers and passengers! SPYCE actively makes suggestions for passengers and both only have to confirm.
AI meets Social Mobility – predictive mobility planning and user matching through AI algorithms, easy and fast use through voice control and CarPlay / Auto integration. With social Profiles, the driver knows in advance who he will be traveling with.
Spyce Transaction Fee – close to Freemium Driver can share up to 50% journey costs with the rider. Spyce receives a fixed fee.
Movebis has won the pitch competition from the German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport. This now entitles us to apply for mFund 2 funding for our project.
We apply for this together in a consortium with the “Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence” of the University of Leipzig https://scads.ai/. They get 100% funding for the development of our AI Next Destination Prediction solution. We apply for a funding amount of 520T€. We offer 2 tickets a 30T€ for 5% company shares each. With this we fully utilize our budget planning and develop a unique social mobility app.
