Strategies for E-Mobility

<p>Electromobility is a critical building block in the transportation revolution. VMZ helps you estimate the opportunities: Where is there concrete potential for your municipality, your city, or your region? What is the current status of charging infrastructure and where is there a need for expanding it? How can we make better use of existing infrastructure? Which locations are suitable for increasing capacities?</p>

VMZ Mobility Platform

Info services on mobility alternatives are most useful for the user when they link as many possible offerings from diverse providers in real-time. Like the well-tested platform by VMZ. We integrate data from many different sources in our API: Carsharing, bikesharing, e-scootersharing, car charging stations, long-distance buses, taxis, ridesharing organizers and other services. A further advantage: we already integrated important, Germany-wide providers.

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.

Traffic Situation Map for Cities

People on the move in cities need continuous access to current traffic information. For this purpose, many cities run traffic sensors along their major roads. VMZ fills gaps in the detected road network with floating car data from different providers and combines all data to provide accurate traffic situation and travel times. The result: A public traffic situation map showing conditions across the road network in real-time.

Mobility Display at Federal Ministry of Transport

Four mobility displays give employees and visitors at the Federal Ministry of Transportation and Digital Infrastructure all transportation options at a glance: They can find out about the traffic situation on Berlin’s streets, construction sites and disruptions, public transport departure times, walking routes to nearby stations and carsharing options.

Mobility Display Messe Berlin

Our mobilitx information can be easily integrated into other devices: for congress center Berlin Messe the VMZ runs a system in the cloud. Real-time information of the streels and from Berlin airports on upcoming departure flights are presented in the Messe’s content management system on portable columns at different locations.

Mobility Display IHK Berlin

Visitors can see how much our mobility display has to offer at the Ludwig-Erhard-House in Berlin. For the Berlin Chamber of Commerce offices, the VMZ integrated information on upcoming departures into an existing CMS so it could be embedded into the Chamber’s event information service. This solution is hosted on the customer’s own server hardware.

Mobility Display SIEMENS Munich

Mobility displays have proven itself outside of Berlin, too. Two displays, one for individual transport, the other for public transport, demonstrate this at SIEMENS’ Munich offices for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Data on the traffic situation doesn’t come from the Traffic Information Center Berlin but from a local provider integrated by the VMZ.
