EU Project DORA

The test case is Berlin to Palma de Mallorca: In the EU Project DORA the VMZ and prominent partners develop a door-to-door information service. The App shows the way from home to airport, in the airport to gate, and from arrival airport to destination. It delivers information on travel options, departure times and trip duration.

BIG IoT: Bridging the Interoperability Gap of IoT

The Internet of Things needs an open ecosystem for data flows. In the EU Project Big IoT an international team tests how this could work in the area of mobility. On board: the VMZ Berlin. We develop an app for commuters in the Berlin-Wolfsburg corridor and make our data accessible to other partners via the Big IoT Marketplace.

Smarter Together

This EU-funded VMZ project takes the case of Munich to show how to extract smart information from chaotic data flows: A platform collects, analyses, and evaluates in real-time selected data in the areas of smart city and mobility, visualizes it, and makes it available to the city administration as a basis for intelligent services and investments.

Park Smarter: city2.e

Finding a parking spot in the inner city takes time and energy. City2.e, funded by the German national government, investigates how we can improve parking: Parking sensors report free spaces, which are then shown in an app. The VMZ was responsible for the mobility platform the routing services.

EU Project Streetlife

For the EU Commission’s research area ‚Steering towards Green and Perceptive Mobility of the Future’, project partners created an app for urban bikers. The VMZ developed the bike routing for the project. We determined high risk areas for accidents and gave app users an ‘avoid high accident areas’ option in their route planning.

PlaG-Inn: Planning Tool for the E-Charging Network

Electromobility scores when Plug’nDrive functions well. The most important prerequisite is a need-tailored charging infrastructure. The federally-funded PlaG-Inn project researched how to efficiently build and extend a charging network geographically in Berlin. The VMZ developed a planning tool for the project together on a team with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). It visualizes geographical centers of current and future demand in five scenarios for three user groups.

EU Project Molecules

For the EU Commission, the VMZ developed an information service on E-Carsharing together with Berlin’s city government, DriveNow and further partners. The innovative app integrates information on available electric cars and charging stations as well as real-time data on traffic conditions into an intermodal route planner. Browser-based versions were developed for Paris and Barcelona.
