Smart MaaS successfully represented at the Smart Country Convention (SCC) in Berlin

The project Smart MaaS – Smart Mobility as a Service, presented itself successfully at the Smart Country Convention in Berlin. “Smart MaaS” is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of their “Smart Service Welt 2” program. Over three days, the project was presented to a receptive public and many new national and international contacts were made. The fair saw a good mix of public and private innovative partners on Smart Cities and Smart Countries, and the new connections will help with the successful implementation of the project.

“The SCC participation, which was supported by all project partners, was a successful building block in the Smart MaaS project. The new contacts not only give us valuable connections but will also help with the development of new Smart mobility services,” says Detlef Olschewski from the Smart MaaS project. The project consortium consists of five strong partners: Fraunhofer IESE, the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), regio IT from Aachen, the FIWARE Foundation and Cleopa GmbH. This team will create a new marketplace for smart mobility services together with the supporting data infrastructure by 2021.

 


 

Smart MaaS Workshop: “Mobility as a Service – Ideas for the concrete implementation

On 25-26 July 2018, a workshop was organized to find answers to the complex challenges of a mobility service platform. The consortium responsible for the success of Smart MaaS met with domain experts in Berlin and brought together the ideas of an ambitious project.

Workshop Format
In this workshop, the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE helped mobility experts to find answers to the challenges of MaaS together in a completely interactive workshop. Fraunhofer reference projects in the field of mobility are Caruso (industrial project for designing a software ecosystem for the automotive aftermarket, www.caruso-dataplace.com) and PRO-OPT (research and development project for effective and intelligent data use using the example of the automotive domain, www.pro- opt.org).

Participants
This workshop was addressed to:

  • technical and business representatives of mobility service providers;
  • government officials involved in digitization, smart cities or mobility initiatives; 
  • software service providers in smart cities projects or, in particular, in the mobility domain;
  • scientists in mobility or smart cities projects
  • and in general to mobility experts.

About 30 experts took part at the workshop. At the end, all participants have received the photo-protocol of the workshop results, as well as the consolidated documentation, both with relevant ideas for the concrete implementation of MaaS ecosystems.
