Гранты Тойёта «Мобильность без ограничений»

Applications are now open for the Toyota Mobility Unlimited Challenge which supports radical improvements in the mobility and independence of people with lower-limb paralysis through smarter assistive technology.The challenge is looking for innovative teams from around the world to build the next generation of mobility devices for people with lower-limb paralysis. More importantly, it is looking for teams who put end-users at the heart of everything they do. That means engaging people with lower-limb paralysis from the outset to develop devices that best meet their needs. Finalists will be competing for a $500,000 Finalist Development Grant.

Prize Information

        Finalists will be competing for a $1,000,000 Prize. Only one team will receive the entire pot.

        Five finalist teams will pitch to the judges in 2020.

        An assessment process ahead of the pitch will inform the judges’ decision.

        Finalists will need a physical prototype to present to the judges.

        Finalists will need to convince the judges that their prototype, if brought to market, could radically improve the mobility and independence of people with lower-limb paralysis. And they’ll need to demonstrate a credible business plan to bring the device to market.

        The $1 million Prize will be used to turn the physical prototype into a marketable device.

        The winner will be announced to the world in September 2020.

        The winner won’t be required to give up any Intellectual Property to receive the Prize.

The initiative is looking for teams with engineering, software, design and data science expertise from around the world.

Deadline: 15 August 2018 For further information, please visit Toyota Mobility Foundation.
