5-9 October 2015, ITS World Congress 2015 – Bordeaux, France
At the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux, MOBiNET presented the third release of its platform, components and tools as well as the concept of a Europe-wide e-market place.
The showcase demonstrated the value add of the MOBiNET platform to end users, app developers, content and service providers. The MOBiNET platform was tested by non-ITS Community developers and valuable feedback was collected from third-party users. The MOBiNET project was able to present the work progress in various technical and business-related areas.
The multiple functionalities of the MOBiNET e-marketplace were demonstrated through a series of activities:
The multimodal journey planning app integrated into the Bordeaux Congress app was enabled by MOBiNET. The MOBiNET app was developed using a large number of open data available in Bordeaux and published in the MOBiNET Service Directory.
The MOBiNET stand demonstrated 7 use cases which showed the value add of MOBiNET either through demonstrations, applications or videos.

MOBiNET presented 10 papers in technical sessions of the ITS Congress Conference. The MOBiNET project session focused on the question whether there is a business case for a universal mobility service marketplace. MOBiNET contributed to the discussion on the transition from a world where the traveller owns or uses a range of transport to one where mobility is delivered through a package of services.
