Berlin based startup SWOCKET has developed a product for Deutsche Bahn called Alumia. Alumia makes lighting in train stations smart. Alumia is able to detect when the last train leaves and when the first arrives, making sure that lights in the train station are turned off when there's a time slot without any trains arriving or leaving. Alumia will help Deutsche Bahn save energy. It will also ensure that broken lamps can be easily detected, so repairs can be coordinated smoothly.
Senvisys is a sensor manufacturer that built a sensor detecting objects on tracks based on vibrations. This means that if there's something on the tracks - like a cow - thanks to their sensor, the train will be able to stop in time. At the moment, Senvisys is focused on efficiently securing level crossings. The startup's technology reduces the necessity of cabling and makes installation and maintenance of securing level crossings more economical and user-friendly than it is today. Senvisys is working with Deutsche Bahn and hopefully soon, their users will be anyone who travels with Deutsche Bahn!
INABE is an innovative navigation and detection system that creates multi-dimensional profiles of indoor locations, such as train stations. It also makes motion profiles of their app's users, so clients like DB can see how travellers move within train stations. GPS technology often fails in buildings, so INABE bases their navigation on iBeacon technology. the INABE app will hopefully be available in German train stations, to help travellers easily find the right platform, or even their seat on the train. betahaus | Berlin has become one of their first testing grounds. Apart from their collaboration with Deutsche Bahn, INABE is in negotiations with the zoo in Leipzig, offering it to visitors.
KONUX is a startup breaking ground in the sensor industry with its patented optoelectronic measuring sensor. Their contactless technology ensures that materials and machines' movement can be measured with higher precision and efficiency. In the Deutsche Bahn accelerator with betahausX, KONUX worked to develop their product in line with the needs of the German railways - to make travelling safer and prevent future delays.

After you’ve taken care of your paperwork and you’ve signed up both in Bürger- and Finanzamt, you are all set up to start working.
