. Driving with feeling: the start-up “GHOST - feel it.” has won the second edition of the “
“GHOST – feel it.” was established in 2017 by neuroscientist Isabella Hillmer and engineer Laura Bücheler. The Berlin-based start-up deals in improving interaction between humans and machines. It focuses on technology for expanding human perception, for example giving amputees feeling in their prostheses. As part of the innovation competition, the winning team integrated this technology into
“It was an honour for us to be able to showcase our product to so many decision-makers within the industry who actually shape the future of driving”, explains Laura Bücheler, co-founder of “GHOST – feel it.”. “We look forward to launching a project together with

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
