Mobility Data Space

Sovereign Mobility Data Ecosystem

A Secure Data Space for the Utilization of Mobility Data

With Mobility Data Space, an open data space is now being created which offers access to real-time traffic data and sensitive mobility data beyond their secure exchange, and which links existing data platforms to each other. In the future, it will thus be possible to provide comprehensive mobility data on a national level.

Based on a decentralized system architecture developed by the International Data Spaces Association e. V., the Mobility Data Space offers an ecosystem in which data providers can specify and control the conditions under which their data can be used by third parties. This approach creates data sovereignty as well as trust, and data users can be sure about data origin and quality. By integrating data from the public and private sector via regional and national platforms, the Mobility Data Space will become a digital distribution channel for data-driven business models, providing entirely new options of data acquisition, linking and exploitation.

Mobility Data Space in Brief

Open and decentralized

The Mobility Data Space is based on the open, decentralized system architecture developed by the International Data Spaces Association e. V.

 

Sovereign 

Data providers are guaranteed sovereignty over their own data and security along the processing and value chains in the sense of a digital rights management system.

 

Traceable

The data space allows the provision and distribution of sensitive data, and guarantees the traceability of their use for purposes of billing and payment.

 

Connected

Data users (e. g., travel information services) receive standardized access to an ecosystem that pools data from public and private sources and services through the connecting of local, regional and national platforms.

 

Diverse

The Mobility Data Space opens up new business opportunities

  • for developers: data apps for mobility services and applications, including distribution via a data app store
  • for IT service providers: hosting of components and data apps in cloud environments as well as corresponding consulting services.

The wide availability of mobility data sources helps foster the development of novel mobility applications and services.
