The main goal of the MaaS4EU (Mobility as a Service for Europe) project is to provide quantifiable evidence, frameworks and tools, to remove the barriers and enable a cooperative and interconnected EU single transport market for the mobility as a service (Maas) concept, by addressing challenges at four levels: business, end-users, technology and policy.
MyWay project will investigate, develop and validate an integrated platform, the European Smart Mobility Resource Manager, including cloud-based services and facilities to support community supplied information collection and processing. The purpose is to holistically address the efficient and seamless integration and use of complementary, capacity-limited mobility services in the overall urban travel chain, including all transport modes (motorised and non-motorised, EVs, public transport, flexible services such as transport on-demand) and mobility sharing schemes (e.g.
OPTICITIES is aiming high, intending to develop and test interoperable ITS solutions in six different cities in order to provide urban citizens with the best possible journey conditions and to optimize urban logistics operations. OPTICITIES gathers 25 partners from across Europe (6 cities, service providers, car industry, research laboratories and major European networks) and will strive to pave the way towards smart urban mobility.
GATEway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) is an £8m research project, led by TRL and jointly funded by Innovate UK and industry, to understand and overcome the technical, legal and societal challenges of implementing automated vehicles in an urban environment. Taking place in Greenwich, one of the UK’s leading smart cities, the project will trial and validate a series of different use cases for automated vehicles, including driverless shuttles and automated urban deliveries.
The Bike Share Map shows the locations of docking stations associated with bicycle sharing systems from 100+ cities around the world. Each docking station is represented by a circle, its size and colour depending on the size and number of bicycles currently in it. The maps generally update every few minutes. There is a version that replays the last 24 hours of colour and size changes. In many cities, an ebb and flow of cycle commuters can be seen.
Vélib’ is a self-service bike system available 24 hours a day, all year round in Paris. It was launched in 2007. Until the recent years the initiative has been enlarged to more than 15,000 bicycles and 1,200 rental stations. The first 30 minutes (or 45 for Vélib’ Passion users) are always free. The system is operated by JCDecaux, and the grey bicycles are produced in Hungary by the French bicycle company Mercier.
Street Lab is Copenhagen’s testarea for smart city solutions in real urban space based on the award-winning world best smart city concept Copenhagen Connecting. It will be a showcase for the newest technologies within smart city and IoT, to demonstrate the potential in these technologies to citizens, decision-makers and companies, and provide a proof of concept for scaling the qualified solutions to larger parts of the city, as well as to other cities in the region, nationally and abroad.
Kalasatama Smart City district of Helsinki is an experimental innovation platform to co-create smart urban infrastructure and services. This centrally located old harbour area is developed flexibly and through piloting, in close co-operation with residents, companies, city officials and other stakeholders. The vision of Kalasatama is to become so resource-wise that residents will gain an extra hour of own time every day.
London's transportation system is one of the most smartly managed systems of the world. Close to 80% of community travel is done through the smart Oyster Card. This makes it possible for TfL (Transport for London, the city's mobility operator) to analyse and use large sets of travel data to develop the transportation system. To date, more than 200 mobility apps have been developed in the city based on the open data principles of TfL.
Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app with more than 75 million users. In March 2017, Debrecen joined the Waze Connected Citizens Program. This is a free two way data exchange program between Waze and governments. Waze collects anonymous real time user data and provides cities these datasets, in return partners provide information on all events affecting traffic (road blocks, closures, events, etc.) The most detailed car map of Debrecen is the map of Waze.
