Mobility 4.0 for Smart Cities. The MOSAiC project
MOSAiC is a project co-funded byPOR FESR Toscana 2014-2020
The aim of MOSAiC is to develop new Mobility 4.0 solutions for mobility operators (concessionaires, public transport companies, etc.). These services are related to the dynamic and real time management of vehicular traffic flow, and they will adopt the more innovative concepts in terms of transport: Mobility as a Service (MaaS), Active Transportation and Demand Management (ATDM), Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), Smart Road, Connected and Autonomous Cars.
Furthermore, MOSAiC will adopt the Industry 4.0 model (data collection and analysis, digital model creation, decision assistance, implementation) for the urban mobility management. The expected outcome can be summarized as follows:
- Providing the road infrastructure with sensor devices able to detect Vulnerable Road Users (VRU) and vehicles, by applying the IoT technologies to the urban mobility, according to C-ITS standards;
- Making the cities able to react dynamically and in real time to emergency situations and environmental events;
- Informing citizens and vehicles (both connected or not connected cars) about changes regarding traffic and parking policies;
- Offering integrated services for intermodal mobility of goods and people.
CNIT is developing MOSAiC in collaboration with Alstom Ferroviaria SpA, Università di Firenze (Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione), Tages società cooperativa, Kiunsys SRL and Devitalia SRL.
