AlterMobili is a Munich-based Smart Mobility start-up. We have set ourselves the goal of solving traffic congestion and environmental problems within the city using technology and the help of drivers. We aim to support vehicular means of transportation, improve our environment and make our cities greener. Time is of the essence and we can no longer wait for big solutions from politics and industry. We know that sustainable transportation is only possible if all road users have accurate and up to date information. Our solution is to connect all cars, regardless of their type or age. Our patent- pending technology turns every car into a connected car. We use smart technology and the collective intelligence of car drivers to ensure a fully networked, efficient and sustainable mobility.
Our primary goal is to reduce parking-search traffic by 30% and to reduce the number of individual trips to busy destinations with a low chance of finding parking by 50%. To achieve this, ALMO connects cars to our Connected Cars Community via the "ALMO" Chip mounted in the car and connected to the ALMO app. When an ALMO user is about to vacate a parking spot, ALMO detects this and alerts other ALMO users of the free space. ALMO is so smart that it even indicates parking opportunities up to 60 seconds before they clear. This means that only ALMO users know when another ALMO user is leaving a parking spot. This enables us to reduce vehicular congestion and eliminate searching for parking.
Facts on the searching for parking:
Causes 30% more traffic
Parking search causes one third of the traffic in European city centres.
Contributes 1,3 kilograms of CO2 emission annually.
Every driver emits an average of 1.3 kg CO2 into the air while searching for a parking space.
Costs 896 euros per year
In Germany drivers lose an average of 896 euros annually on searching for parking.
10 minutes wasted on searching for parking

Our goals for Europe are for a significant reduction of emissions created by parking search traffic and to make cities greener while maintaining individual mobility. To achieve this, we are building a sustainable company.
