The translation of Molière’s vision into practical use cases was focused on leveraging Galileo’s benefits for the mobility industry, and also underpinned by our own Mobility Data Marketplace (MDM) which has served as the base layer for all of them.
Galileo, as Europe’s own Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), has enabled Molière’s uses cases to go one step forward by accessing to accurate geo-positioning services with errors limited at street level resolution, being able to function without interruption, and providing signal authentication and integrity services.
Galileo’s accurate and reliable geolocation services enable efficient shared transport services. This is since accuracy is key for MaaS users who want to locate their vehicles by centimeters, public transport to enable reliable wait and travel time, and Demand Responsive Transport which cannot happen without really being responsive to location and time. These accuracy and reliability characteristics also allow for Public Authorities to make informed mobility decision policies due to having data to produce effective micro-mobility strategies, single vehicle ownership mitigation plans, and public transport optimisation plans.
Regarding Galileo’s authentication and integrity technologies, they enable secure mobility transactions to take place through being able to provide authenticated and certified digital signatures, check that the exact trip has indeed been provided by cross-checking the mobility service providers and users’ data.
Related to Molière’s MDM, Use Case 1 Micro-incentives & Geofencing has explored micro-subsidies as a mechanism to encourage sustainable mobility, whereas Use Case 3 Proof of Mobility Service examined a robust mechanism to allocate incentives to all stakeholders in the MDM to propel its growth, especially in early stages of its deployment. These subsidies can be very easily delivered on a blockchain platform as long as they can be tokenized, in an auditable and verifiable fashion.
Use Case 2 Lane Patrol has enhanced the quality of the data in the MDM by reporting the quality of cycle lanes as bikes go through, which could then be used to inform routing choices for end-users (part of future work).
Use Case 4 Decentralised Mobility Data Sharing for Flex Transport, and Use Case 5 Bus Travel Prediction Tool, have on the other hand related to tracking bus services with precision, and making the data available to authorities, operators and end-users of mass transit (either traditional or on demand).
The five use cases have now finalised with success by exploring the utilisation of Galileo satellites, data sharing, and blockchain technologies to address critical challenges and unlock new possibilities in various sectors of the mobility industry. The conclusions of the five use cases have demonstrated the transformative capabilities of integrating cutting-edge technologies in mobility and transportation, leading to improved security, efficiency, and transparency.
