In this paper, we present our vision of MobiliNet. MobiliNet is a user-oriented approach for optimising mobility chains with the goal of providing innovative mobility across differ- ent types of mobility providers – from personal short range battery powered mobility aids over different types of pub- lic transports (e.g. buses, short distance train networks) to personal mobility means (e.g. car sharing).
Our vision for MobiliNet is based on a social network- like system that is not limited to human participants. By including vehicles, corporations, parking spaces and other objects and spaces, the system could make traveling more comfortable and less stressful, and finally more efficient for the travellers.
MobiliNet allows high-level trip planning, but also pays attention to other important details of the supported means of transportation. Especially for user groups with special needs, MobiliNet actively supports self-determined mobility. Thus enables again an active participation of this user group in in social life. Besides supporting travellers, the system could also create new business opportunities for transport associations and car sharing corporations.

  3. 3. Distributed Multimodal Information Processing Group Technische Universität München Background and Motivation §  Seamless mobility is an open issue (especially in rural contexts) §  Door-to-door mobility often needs combination of several mobility means (intermodality) §  Higher demand for support, mainly due to aging society Ø  Barrier free accessibility according to the existing norms can address these problems only partially. §  Big optimization potentials for traffic / transports §  Ecological aspects §  Overall efficiencyImage source: http://www.access2mountain.eu/SiteCollectionImages/intermodality.jpg 17.10.2012 Stefan Diewald 3
  4. 4. Distributed Multimodal Information Processing Group Technische Universität MünchenMobiliNet – A Social Network for Optimized Mobility§  User-oriented approach for optimizing mobility chains§  Targeted at all kinds of user groups§  Allows for allocation and coordination of mobility services§  Based on social network principles (profiles, relations, information sharing, …)§  Accessible by all Internet-connected devices§  Supports numerous participants (stakeholders, objects) besides end users17.10.2012 Stefan Diewald 4

  6. 6. Distributed Multimodal Information Processing Group Technische Universität MünchenSample ScenarioThe user ...§  owns a private electric car,§  does not need special support,§  has no public transport subscription.MobiliNet takes into account...§  battery state of the electric vehicle,§  future trips for suggesting the cheapest fare.17.10.2012 Stefan Diewald 6
  7. 7. Distributed Multimodal Information Processing Group Technische Universität MünchenFuture Work§  Some basic building blocks are already available.§  We plan to realize a functional prototype as part of the PASSAge project.17.10.2012 Stefan Diewald 7
