MobiliData: mobility project by Be-Mobile

Mobilidata_Sirus

MobiliData is an ambitious mobility project where public and private forces are combined to make traffic safer, smoother and greener through smart data management and technology. Be-Mobile, a Belgian company specialized in smart mobility solutions, created a strong consortium to achieve this ambitious project. As part of the consortium, Sirus will help tackle this challenge. Flanders is allocating 18.2 million euros for this purpose.

 

“With this strong public-private partnership, AWV is committed to connected mobility. With this program, we are developing digital road management whereby we pass real-time traffic information to road users, who in turn ‘connect’ to our road infrastructure. Movements thus become smoother, safer, more sustainable and more comfortable.” Tom Roelants, Administrator General AWV

 

31 traffic applications

MobiliData will realize 31 innovative technological traffic applications in total. Through a network of sustainable, smart and reliable data, the signal sent by your on-board computer or smartphone will interact with traffic lights so it can better respond to certain mobility needs. For example, when a priority vehicle approaches an intersection during an urgent mission, the traffic light will automatically switch to green so it can proceed smoothly.

 

Sirus providing data interoperability

MobiliData project Sirus traffic lightsMobility is one of the biggest challenges facing cities and regions today. Providing data plays a key role in solving the mobility puzzle. An important aspect to offer data is interoperability. In our solution we chose to implement the Minimal Interoperability Mechanims (hereafter abbreviated as MIM) from OASC. These MIMs ensure that the data is available to third parties such as private companies, citizens, governments and research institutions and in this way implements the Quadruple Helix.

This ensures that the interactions between the different institutions take place in an optimal way, which leads to a “knowledge economy”.

 

The implementation of MIMs

In our solution we implement MIM1 by connecting the data platform to a cloud-based NGSI-LD context broker. Our context broker implements the full NGSI-LD api specification and can therefore handle both status and temporal properties. MIM2 is implemented because we use the context adapter to convert the data into shared data models that can be consulted by all data consumers. Furthermore, the implementation of these MIMs ensures great reusability of the data in other, as yet unknown, use cases.

Additionally, the solution Sirus is building in this context can be rolled out further in other cities and regions, because the underlying problem occurs globally.
