JOYNEXT receives the Best Technology Award by Cyclingworld Europe 2023

JOYNEXT has won the Cyclingworld Europe Award in the "Best Technology" category at Cyclingworld Europe 2023. The awards are presented by the Global Entrepreneurship Centre (GEC). With the awards, the GEC recognizes technological innovations and entrepreneurial initiatives of promising “sustech” topics and companies (Sustainable Technologies) with a sustainability and climate protection focus.


The Best Technology Award is given to JOYNEXT by Stefan Maly, CEO and founder of Cyclingworld Europe for their solution "V2X for VRU" (Vehicle to Everything for Vulnerable Road Users, weak road users, like cyclists). With the submitted technology, JOYNEXT addresses the issue of road safety by directly connecting all road users and providing early warning of potential collisions. The algorithm recognizes the mode of locomotion and evaluates the user's direction and speed, using this data to calculate any overlapping points, such as potential collisions with other road users. This makes it possible to warn road users at an early stage, even if they cannot yet see each other or are obscured by buildings or trees, for example. Accidents can be avoided by the developed app as well as the V2X gadget. JOYNEXT's technology also solves more complex traffic situations, such as cooperative maneuvers of vehicles in mixed as well as autonomous road traffic.


"The award is the best proof that our innovative solution is also of very great importance in the bicycle market. This shows us once again that there is enormous interest in comprehensive networking via V2X technology.  The award motivates us to bring the product to market quickly and significantly contribute to the protection of vulnerable road users", says Hanna Hower, Head of the Advanced Engineering Department at JOYNEXT.


JOYNEXT presented itself and its solution at Cyclingworld Europe 2023. There, the company also presented the award-winning solution in detail to interested participants to bring it to the market.
