Project Description

GETUP – Green MaaS for adapTive Urban Planning

GETUP experiments and validates technological tools for the management of urban mobility according to the MaaS paradigm with the primary objective of promoting the development of sustainable transport and making mobility services accessible and usable  in every city context and for every category of users.

THE PROJECT

The project addresses the public and private transport service in a broader sense of the term, providing “tailored made” solutions and information with a combined and interconnected organization of means of transport, combined with cutting-edge technologies for the exchange of information able to break down most of the digital barriers.

The goal is to offer the right balance between technologically advanced services and personalized services even for users who show more resistance and who are less comfortable with the use of technology.

From these assumptions, the MaaS system implemented in the project will be able to:

  • Collect, analyze and process traffic data, information and services of public and private mobility operators, data from IoT sensors related to environmental conditions and the transport environment.
  • Integrate data, information and services acquired by the different components of mobility within an ecosystem of interoperable services to support a combined mobility offer, accessible to the users in all its main phases (information, booking, travel).
  • Plan transport solutions, modal combinations and route times based on the characteristics and preferences of the user, providing a highly personalized and low-impact solution, connected to an incentive and reward systems.
  • Integrate flexible vehicle-sharing solutions and on-demand operated services into the mobility offer, thus raising the level of personalization and accessibility of the final mobility offering.
  • Offer appropriate solutions to specific user segments (e.g. elderly and users with reduced mobility) which is a characteristic of particular importance given the socio-demographic specificities of the local users (Ligurian region).

RESEARCH AREAS

  • Data integration and interoperability for the creation of an innovative urban mobility platform to ensure travel planning that removes the data communication and interoperability barriers between platforms of public/private operators, thus fostering cooperation with the systems and services available in the territory, with the possibility of aggregating data from different sources of transport operators.
  • Usability: development of an innovative, digital platform that offers simplified and adaptive interfaces within everyone’s reach, especially those who are not familiar with digital systems, thanks to the possibility of carrying out personalized searches.
  • Open data methodologies; crowd-sourcing and social sharing systems for the improvement of data quality and personalized transport offer.
  • Environmental sustainability through MaaS services with an integration between services (those with zero or reduced impact) aimed at improving the environmental impact. Development of integrated and intelligent management systems that offer aggregation and real-time analysis of traffic and pollution data, allowing to calculate the environmental impact of individual routes. Development of reward systems for the most sustainable choices.

CONSORTIUM

algoWatt SpA is the coordinator of the project and responsible for the technological development. The consortium includes ICT companies specialized in the different areas of development, namely: Flairbit, Exis, OnAir, Cleis Security, IROI and the local transport company, AMT.

The project also includes collaboration agreements between the participating partners and the University of Genoa (CIELI, DIBRIS and DIME departments), the CNR (National Research Council), transport operators, other companies specialized in the research areas of the project and the Galliera hospital for the realization of the SilverBus on-demand service.
