MobiWallet Final Event

 

 

Next Tuesday 27th of September, Santander will host the final event of the project MobiWallet, which main target is to allow integrated payment for any transport mode, public or personal, and the provision of intelligent services to improve mobility, taking advance of the latest ICT advances and Smartphone capabilities.

Co-financed by the EU Innovation and Competitiveness Framework Program (CIP), MobiWallet project is coordinated by Indra, in collaboration with 14 companies and state bodies that are running four national pilot programs in the cities of Santander in Spain (INDRA, Ayuntamiento de Santander, University of Cantabria, Banco Santander, TST),  Florence and Pisa in Italy (INTECS, CNR, Aleph, GEST, Comune di Firenze),  West Midlands region in the United Kingdom (Centro, TTR), and Novi Sad in Serbia (DunavNET, JGSP "Novi Sad"City of Novi Sad). The four pilots have tested a range of systems (NFC; QR codes, augmented reality, SMS) and have covered a variety of transport modes, but all share the same objective, vision and approach. This has ensured that MobiWallet has not only driven progress toward the design of a single and interoperable payment solution for the different modes of transport involved in each pilot program, but also allowed users in one city to buy tickets for transport in another, either via the same application or by providing simple access to apps used by other cities without the need of registering again and even using the credit available in the transport virtual wallet of their city.  Moreover, MobiWallet also offers additional services to make for better mobility and render transport smarter and more sustainable, such as multi-modal route planning, smart fare selection, the use of augmented reality to access transport and real-time information on transport options, parking availability and car sharing opportunities.

During the event the partners will share the projects results and lessons learnt for the future deployment of these systems, including demonstrations of the technologies deployed and being used by hundreds of travellers in the pilot cities.

Spanish Pilot Presentation

This week we focus on the Spanish Pilot being deployed in the city of Santander. The pilot takes place mostly in the city's Urban Zone, covering this area's transport almost in its entirety, but it also includes some outlying areas, particularly those covered by the Pedreñeras (private ferry) available from the city centre to nearby towns in the metropolitan area.

Have a look to the following slides to discover more about Spanish pilot:

MobiTickt App promoted in Florence Metropolitan Area

Florence Municipality published on January 28 a press release promoting MobiTickt, the app provided byMobiWallet Italian Pilot that allows to buy tickets and travel around Florence Metropolitan Area by tram, bus and train (on urban routes). MobiTickt also permits to pay for parking in selected locations in Scandicci; this is a particular useful solution for commuters opting for park&ride.

"The project is currently in its experimental stage" said Stefano Giorgetti, Councillor for public works, infrastructure projects, roads and maintenance, local public transport – thus it is important to use and test the application that , in future , will involve more and more services for mobility For this reason, I invite the citizens to download and use the application".

 

MobiTickt app is available from the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alephprogetti.mobiwalletbus

UK Pilot Presentation

This week we focus on the UK Pilot being deployed in West Midlands. 

The UK pilot in West Midlands, Birmingham, implements a fare management engine named 'MobiWallet Engine', offering a complete public transport mobility solution for the region, in partnership with a number of private travel operators. Our solution is using current Swift Smartcard platform provided by CENTRO (who is leading UK pilot) to enhance and develop a full end to end ticket-less service offering.

Have a look at the presentation and discover the technological solutions we propose to travel safely and smoothly across Europe:

CIVINET UKI / MobiWallet Joint Event

 Personal Mobility & the Mobile Phone  

Using smart technology to deliver Sustainable Mobility

On November 24, in Birmingham, we had the first joint event between CIVINET UK & Ireland and MobiWallet. The focus of this public event was on Personal Mobility and the Smartphone. Indeed, the introduction of mobile phone apps has deeply transformed the way business communicates with its customers and enabled local authorities to engage in a smarter way with their communities. Personal mobility has been enhanced by access to this latest technology, which can represent an essential part in encouraging sustainable travel.

The day has focused on the use of mobile phone applications that aim at improving access to smarter choices in mobility while providing better adaptation to users' needs. Notably, the rich program included the following presentations:
