Smart MaaS provides the standardization fundamentals in the mobility sector

Smart MaaS is mentioned as a standards setting initiative in the new publication “Norms and standards for digital transformation”. The project´s goals and impact are depicted in the second part of the book (called “Creating norms and standards”),  a section that covers, among others, innovative methods of consensus, business decision making on standardization, the role of open source communities in standardization, and cybersecurity.

In the chapter “Methods for finding consensus in market-related standardization processes” Smart MaaS shows, in the practice of standardization, how can be achieved the primary goal of easy replication and portability of systems: “As a result, the project [Smart MaaS] aims to create MIOS (Minimum Information Interoperability Standards) in the mobility sector (MMIOS). These standards can be used for local platforms and operators in the area and are interoperable with cross-domain smart city topologies. The project will also deploy the appropriate and specific API´s, including those based on FIWARE, and will perform concrete test projects with the partners and associated partners in several cities. In the later commercial usage, PPIs and PCP procedures will then be helpful in technically implementing the local adaptation. ” (i)
