DLR researchers are organising a spin-off project to deploy the technology alongside an innovative logistics concept that is faster and more flexible than a car or van, while also ensuring quiet and emissions-free operation. The DLR spin-off project FCPP is one of the six innovative business ideas selected in the current competition round for the Helmholtz Enterprise support program organized by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.
