  • TQ Speaker Notes:I thought I would remind ourselves about the about the freightAs you can see from this slide freight accounts for a large proportion of the many challenges. Those millions of trucks account for 2 200 000 million tonne-kilometres (tkm) in 2009; a little over three quarters was by road. This equates to one tonne going to the moon and back 3 times. But it also seems crazy that the EU estimates that ½ of all trucks are empty (I’ve also heard other figures such as a 1/3 but even so it’s a lot)The Eddie Stobart group state that they achieve 87.5% asset utilisation. A 1% increase saves 1.7m miles/year which equates to €3MSo to optimise freight is important. The EU have also included it in their ITS for Urban Mobility Directive – you can see what they’ve stated on the slide. They are looking to optimise urban logistics efficiency, including on improving the links between long-distance, inter-urban and urban freight transport, aiming to ensure efficient ‘last mile’ delivery.
  • TQ Speaking Notes:CVIS, Cooperative Vehicle-Infrastructure Systems is a major new European research and development project aiming to design, develop and test the technologies needed to allow cars to communicate with each other and with the nearby roadside infrastructure. [2004-2009] (, a Dutch project, tasked with creating Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) concepts that can improve mobility and safety. National follow up initiative of CVIS [2010-2011] in cooperation with NXP, TNO, TomTom, universities and SME’s. (, an Integrated Project funded by the European Commission to build an information services platform centred on the individual cargo item and on its interaction with the surrounding environment and the user. [2007-2012] (, a 3-year integrated project (April 2010 - March 2013), funded by the European Commission to create an integrated solution for road transport energy efficiency to help drivers, freight and road operators. [2011-2014] (, Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations. Also an integrated Project funded by the European Commission to build an open affordable information architecture that allows real world objects, existing systems, and new applications to efficiently co-operate, enabling more cost effective and lower-CO2 logistics through improved synchronisation and load factors across all transport modes. [2011-2015] ( these programmes used V2X technologies in some way – but they are all research about the art of the possible and not about mass deployment…..
  • To enable mass deployment what do we need?The user wants – one account and access to pan-European servicesThe operators wants – easy access to the users to make its data available to meet its needs be that emission or congestion reductionsThe OEM or service provider whats – easy deployment of their services to a wide a user community as possible
  • Despite the fast development of technologies & standards for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication, deployment of corresponding services is slow and fragmented. MOBiNET will seek to address many of the perceived barriers listed for example:The few existing connected-vehicle services are typically proprietary – with applications linked to a particular hardware platform – and few offer truly Europe-wide coverage or interoperability. We heard Carlos from Tom Tom talking about a business to business connection for traffic light information – how many times do you have to do this?
  • None of these are new in their own right – but they all are point solutions. Marcus from BMW listed a lot of the user casesGert from Helmond talked about some of the FREILOT user cases for freight users- fuel savings & time accuracy. Fleet dock booking in Urban environment

    3. 3. Freight in the Urban Environment• Millions of trucks, freight trains and cargo ships are on the move around the world each day.• They account for more than 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions• Account for around a third of total energy consumption• A typical cargo truck spends ½ its working life emptyTheme 6 — Optimising urban mobilityAction 19 — Urban freight transportThe Action: The Commission intends to provide help on how to optimise urbanlogistics efficiency, including on improving the links between long-distance, inter-urbanand urban freight transport, aiming to ensure efficient ‘last mile’ delivery. It will focuson how to better incorporate freight transport in local policies and plans and how tobetter manage and monitor transport flows. 3

    5. 5. Pilots to mass deployment……The user wants... • a one-click service to plan & accompany your trip from your handset, with pan-European roaming & coverage, virtual ticketing and a single user accountThe road or transport operator wants... • to publish traffic and travel information to all users, to attract new customers, and to save costs, energy & CO2 thanks to interactive cooperative services for system managementThe vehicle manufacturer or service provider wants... • an easy-to-use development kit for innovative user services, and an exchange platform linking to all information & travel-related service elements needed to fulfil customers’ requests for local & Europe-wide mobility services 5
    6. 6. Problem areas addressedThese are the main problem areas targeted by theMOBiNET project:• Drivers and travellers need significant effort to discover, use and pay for services, then must subscribe separately to each one they need• There are very few Europe-wide travel assistance services for end-users, while locally-based services are inconsistent and of variable quality• Europe does not have a unified system for electronic ticketing and mobile payment for mobility services, causing extra delays for transport operations and inconvenience for occasional travellers• For cooperative systems, roadside and back-office application interfaces are not standardised, holding back deployment• Proprietary connected vehicle services are channelled through closed hardware and application software, making them expensive to deploy and difficult to extend and enhance• Business-to-business contracting requires one-by-one negotiation, making it hard to extend services beyond the local area 6
    7. 7. MOBiNET Vision• Europe-wide service platform: any service, to any customer, on any device, available anywhere in Europe• Traveller assistant: one identity, one account across Europe; instant, one-touch services• Total mobility: any means of transport, full data, seamless trip chains• Business opportunities: added choice & quality for users; enhanced products & extra customers for service providers 7
    8. 8. What is MOBiNET?• Online B2B directory of Europe-wide transport data and services• Unified mobile accounting, payment and clearing system giving users a single account valid throughout Europe and simplifying roaming among providers• Open business environment enabling providers to integrate third-party services with their own products• Secure environment for in-vehicle and portable devices offering users a dedicated app-store, and service providers access to MOBiNET-compliant user devices• Business-to-business e-marketplace for the automatic negotiation of service agreements• Service Development Kit to simplify the creation of innovative MOBiNET services for end- and business users. 8
