Technology Features & Specifications

The integrated mobility solution encompasses an IMO platform (Integrated Mobility Platform) and the IMO client (end-user application for iOS and Android). The IMO client enables the end-user to deal with intermodal mobility in an easy manner (routing, ticket purchase, reservation/booking, management of user profile, etc.). The solution represents the first platform to also facilitate booking and payment (including clearing). The IMO platform is highly scalable and able to integrate all related services from both internal and external service providers and handle critical transactions with end-user applications and partner services. It unites extensive methodological expertise, domain knowledge, serves as a basis for efficient development and operation of mobility information services. It facilitates rapid data collection, processing and providing up-to-date information from different source systems. From a technical perspective by providing central access to all mobility offerings, the IMO platform is furthermore also the fundament for any Mobility-as-a-Service offer realized within the next months and years. Thereby, it definitely paves the way towards a more sustainable mobility eco-system by enabling mobility even without owning a private car (i.e. by also enabling car sharing platforms and other collaborative transport forms). While competing platforms only offer intermodal routing and pricing information, this platform is the first that includes comprehensive booking and payment operations (ticketing and clearing). It supports different payment systems, integrates ticket shops and can be linked to mobility cards (including RFID, NFC).

Potential Applications

Our customers can be distinguished by Transport Service Povider (TSP), Platform Serice Operator (PSO) and Mobility Service Provider (MSP). Moreover, the integrated mobility solution provides the following innovative features: - Intermodal routing When calculating routes, it takes into account urban and intercity public transport, car sharing, bike sharing, the user's own car and bike as well as taxis. For every route suggestion the service lists the duration of the journey, price and environmental footprint. - Ticket booking and purchase With the transport means chosen, tickets can be bought directly via the app. They are displayed clearly in the app for the user to present in case of a ticket inspection. Car and bike sharing as well as taxi rides can also be paid via the app. Billing takes place via credit card at the end of the month. - Mobility services nearby For spontaneous route planning, the IMO provides information on mobility services in the user's vicinity. For example, the location of unused city bikes, the availability of car sharing vehicles and the next public transport departure are shown in real time. Currently available mobility services can be displayed both as a list or on a map. - Personal mobility profile Via the app, the user can save personal data for route and price calculations. This includes season tickets for public transport or memberships for bike and car sharing. Furthermore, personal vehicles like bike or car can be saved and taken into account during route planning as well.
