The overall mission is linked to the theme of Sustainable Mobility.
Skills and Experise Offered: Main activity: WP7-Digital infrastructure and information flows- research and development of an innovative system for ICT / ITS applied to urban mobility of passengers through the use of Combined Transport Vehicles, "sustainable" means, meaning electric, with the local public transport (bus transport). The WP7-Digital infrastructure and information flows- intends to build an integrated urban transport system and interoperable between passenger mobility services (bus, car / bike / scooter sharing) making usufruibili simultaneously through a shared mobile information system.
The system will include a technological platform (open data) able to manage in a combined mode, the demand for the traditional urban transport (bus) with ecological means (electric); the platform "open" configure interoperability between ticketing systems for buses, selection Bureau of electric vehicles, with the bike rental and car electrical. The consortium will carry out the technological prototype and will take care of his experimentation in urban areas in collaboration with the company public transportation T.U.A. Spa. for bus transport services, EcocityCar for bike-sharing services, with ALPIQ for electric charging services and ABREX for new purchase / sale systems without currency exchange
To date, the consortium has developed a specific know-how in innovative technologies related to the bus ticketing, through the experimental project called
SM @ RTICKET active from 2015 the town of Pescara, Chieti, Lanciano; This project is intended to test the digitization of urban and sub-urban bus lines shared subscriptions.
The Sm @ rticket project was carried out in collaboration with T.U.A. Spa and involved about 3,000 users traveling on about 200 buses with innovative ticket-less system board and wireless badge.
