Europe-Wide Platform for Cooperative Mobility Serv.. (MOBiNET)
Europe-Wide Platform for Cooperative Mobility Services
Start date: Nov 1, 2012,
End date: Aug 31, 2016
MOBiNET will develop, deploy and operate the technical and organisational foundations of an open, multi-vendor platform for Europe-wide mobility services. Key MOBiNET innovations address the barriers to cooperative system-enabled service deployment, including the lack of harmonised services; availability of communication means; inaccessibility and incompatibility of transport-related data; fragmentation of end-user subscription and payment services; proprietary technologies in user devices; etc.MOBiNET will develop solutions for both business (B2B) users and end (B2C) users (drivers and travellers):- a comprehensive directory of Europe-wide mobility and transport-related data and services;- an e-Marketplace as an e-commerce network linking end users, content- and service-providers;- single sign-on MOBiNET membership & single payment account for end users;- membership of the MOBiNET B2B Provider Community enables providers to add third-party content and services contract-free to their own products;- a platform-independent agent on end-user devices, including access to a MOBiNET App Store and an intelligent communication & connectivity manager that hosts end-user services;- the project will develop both a Service Development Kit to enable easy creation of MOBiNET user services and a set of uniform Reference Services suitable for Europe-wide deployment, including "eco-traffic management-as-a-service" and a multimodal traveller assistant;MOBiNET central facilities will be hosted as cloud services available to the provider community, and will be operational early during the project. These facilities will be taken up at a group of diverse pilot sites that will validate MOBiNET in trials aimed at learning from operators' and users' experience how to create, deploy and operate services in a Europe-wide platform.
