Honourable Mention
The Smart Wheel captures data points along a route walked by the users carrying the device. The collected information, including distances, pictures, notes and videos, is used to create digital and interactive maps. This helps construction projects to be planned with more simplicity and precision. The data are transferred in real time via Bluetooth to an app. Users can select any data points on the map and carry out additional calculations without having to go back on-site to remeasure.

Statement by the jury

»The Smart Wheel triggers new design developments in the field of measuring technology. Its open architecture has a friendly and easily accessible look. «
