The project is being developed by a consortium of strong partners with extensive experience in their area of expertise. Discover who is behind this project:
FIWARE Foundation e.V.The FIWARE Foundation was founded in October 2016 as a non-profit association. It organizes the FIWARE community, which brings together all the individuals and organizations committed to the FIWARE mission: an open, sustainable ecosystem designed to build public, royalty-free and implementation-driven software platform standards that drive development Smart Applications in sectors such as Smart Cities, Industrial IoT and Smart Agrifood. These platform standards are implemented in the FIWARE open source platform.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE in Kaiserslautern has been one of the world’s leading research institutions in the field of software and system development methods for more than 20 years. Fraunhofer IESE deals with innovative topics around digital ecosystems such as Industry 4.0, big data and cyber security. As a technology and innovation partner for the digital transformation in the areas of autonomous and cyber-physical systems and digital services, the institute is researching the interaction of embedded systems and information systems in digital ecosystems.
regio iT GmbH
The aim of the regio iT subproject in the Smart MaaS project is to accelerate the development of the Mobility Broker mobility platform using existing and project-developed FIWARE components and demonstrating their suitability for practical use. The Mobility Broker is a platform that has already been successfully established on the market, bringing together mobility offers from a region via interfaces. Within the Smart MaaS project, the connection of new service offerings via standardized FIWARE components should now be much faster and easier. Here the Mobility Broker demonstrates the integration of a national long-distance bus provider as well as a transfer service (taxi). The Mobility Broker is also developing its own ad hoc ride-sharing service (Ridesharing) for the expansion of company mobility offers.
Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz (German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence)
The DFKI are technology providers in the Smart Maas project. They will develop the the Linked Data Principles and Semantic Web Technologies for the SmartMaaS Platform and at the same time complement the FIWARE OpenStack, Tools for Linked Data Compliant Services, IT Security Concepts.
Cleopa is a smart service company and active partner and service provider in national and international innovation and research projects. Cleopa GmbH is the consortium leader for the Smart MaaS project.

“FIWARE provides an open smart service framework for platforms and, as a neutral technology supplier, will contribute not only with essential generic FIWARE software components to building the Smart Maas service offering, but also with many years of experience in open source software and the establishment and dissemination of technology standards …”
“IWARE provides an open, curated service framework that serves as the foundation for developing smart, interoperable applications. A wide range of standardized software components are used, whose application options as generic function modules are not defined for any application scenario and are designed across design domains …”
„As a developer and operator of an already productive multimodal mobility platform, we are aware of the challenge of integrating numerous, still proprietary, interfaces of various mobility service providers in the market. The use of standardized FIWARE mobility service components could significantly accelerate the evolution of our platform.“
„The implementation of integrated smart mobility solutions requires a variety of structured information and functions, which often have to be assembled from proprietary, regionally closely defined system worlds. Therefore, the development of the broad, easy-to-use Smart MaaS platform for consolidated mobility-related data and features helps service providers and developers implement new application ideas efficiently and trans-regionally …“
„From the user’s point of view, MaaS is obvious: In an app, users can get a complete picture of the current local mobility offer, select a route or options and book the ticket. These decisions then correspond to individual and current needs. Behind the curtain, it’s more complicated, especially when it comes to proper governance …”
