    Digital event (via Zoom)

Self-driving cars and trucks have received a lot of media attention in recent years. Other types of autonomous vehicles and systems are also becoming increasingly important in the fields of mobility and transport. These systems do not only support drivers, but the mobility sector as a whole. The benefits of automation are numerous and include increasing the efficiency, sustainability and safety of mobility, as well as improving the use, planning and maintenance of infrastructure for all modes of transport. As is so often the case, emerging technologies pose new challenges, but also create new opportunities.

Focusing on the role of data innovations for autonomous systems in the mobility sector, invited speakers and interested parties will discuss challenges and opportunities of automation from their perspectives and experiences. The presented projects cover different modes of transport, including waterways and rail. The potential impact of 5G and innovations with a focus on infrastructure security will also be addressed. In addition, cross-border issues and needs will be discussed.

You are very welcome to share your knowledge and ideas during the event.

We look forward to your participation!

About the online mFUND-Workshop series “Data Innovations for Smart Mobility in Europe”

Data has become an important driver in all areas of our modern society and its importance is increasing every day. Data is the basis for most digital innovations. It offers enormous potential for new business models and products.

In the transport sector, digital technologies and data are used on a large scale to increase efficiency, reliability and safety of services and infrastructure and economy. At the same time, databased solutions contribute to reducing the use of resources and tackle climate change. Citizens can greatly benefit from data-based solutions, which can enable seamless multimodal traffic, increase safety and improve the mobility experience in all types of environments.

With the virtual conference “Open Data for Smart Mobility in Europe”, held under the auspices of the German EU Council Presidency on 17 November 2020, the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport has initiated a European dialogue on examples for data innovations in the mobility field across Europe.
To continue this knowledge exchange and to facilitate new partnerships between European projects and actors, the BMDV mFUND programme has established a new online workshops series on Data Innovations for Smart Mobility. Several events on different transportation topics took place since the summer of 2021 and the series will continue throughout 2022.
