Mobility as a Service: How MaaS Platforms Can Facilitate the Required Mobility Shift
About the Event
The goal of Smart MaaS (Mobility as a Service) is to build an Open Source, standardised mobility service platform, and reference architecture that allows for the creation of new innovative mobility services. This includes a new trusted marketplace that allows for interoperability between different modes of transport. As part of the project, new mobility services are being designed and trialed.
The Smart MaaS platform uses the domain-neutral FIWARE infrastructures and technologies developed as a service-oriented generic platform under EU funding programs. FIWARE is increasingly seen as the international standard for Open Source middleware for IoT and Smart City applications which strongly includes Mobility. The project Smart MaaS is part of the technology program “Smart Service Welt II”, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
What will Mobility look like in the after-COVID period and in the longer-term future? How can we create the required mobility ecosystem? Can an exemplary marketplace, where innovative mobility services are clustered and linked to new market-driven services, help to create the required mobility shift?
The goal of Smart MaaS platforms is to build an Open Source, standardised mobility service platform, and reference architecture that allows for the creation of new innovative mobility services. A lot of value lies in new data creation and the provision of a trusted marketplace that allows for interoperability between different modes of transport. As part of the project, new mobility services are being designed and trialed.
We will have a look at how car rental on-demand, car sharing, bike sharing, electric or driverless vehicles, intelligent transport, and other areas feed into a Mobility as a Service platform, what this means for new business models and our ways to move around in the city and outside thanks to digital technologies.
This online event is also part of one of the most important European Mobility events: the European Mobility Week. This event has been initiated by the European Commission which has sought to improve public health and quality of life through promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport.
