INNOMOTION

Innomotion aims to create an Urban Mobility Scale-up Program in Istanbul and will provide support for innovative mobility solutions from all the cities of Turkey. By integrating the program with other EIT Urban Mobility accelerator programs, business creation services and Urban Mobility Living Lab in Istanbul, Innomotion will provide scaling up services for startups. The consortium will run a competion program for mobility startups, especially addressing the challenges defined by the city club members of EIT Urban Mobility. This competion program will enable the consortium to reach to the best mobility startups with high potential of scalability in the region, increase the visibility of EIT Urban Mobility and in the long run support the sustainability of EIT Urban Mobility. 

MeHUB

MeHUB helps to organise public space within the urban environment as well as lower operational costs for service providers and create a better MaaS(Mobility as a Service) experience for users with a connected and universal micro-mobility charging infrastructure. 

The project  

  • creates alternative solutions for efficient and electric personal mobility. 
  • integrates last-kilometre solutions with existing public transportation hubs. 
  • ensures vehicles are supported by smart and connected locking against vandalism. 
  • measures the scalable benefits of the infrastructure. 
  • minimises operational needs and supports reducing and measuring carbon emissions. 

SUMBooST2

SUMBooST2 develops universally applicable data science methodology which extracts key urban mobility parameters and origin/destination matrix from the anonymised big data set gathered from telecom operator. 

The algorithms which separate relevant mobility data from the overall dataset are the unique part of the toolbox. The algorithms to identify passenger car trips are developed in 2020 project SUMBooST, and they are being upgraded in the 2021 to detect trips made by active mobility modes and public transport. 

SUMBooST2 is a follow up of SUMBooST 2020 project where the methodology of the toolbox was based on the identification of passenger car trips only. The project plans to further improve the methodology and will mainly be focused on identifying sustainable transport modes and their strengthening, but personal car trips will also be analyzed as an additional validation of the first version of toolbox. 

For the methodology to be valid, it must be implemented in representative number of cities. SUMBooST included implementation and validation in the City of Rijeka, and SUMBooST2 continues with two other cities, Zagreb and Dubrovnik. 

Innovative methodology (toolbox) is based on big data science further enhanced and validated through traditional traffic research. The most creative and innovative part is the extraction of the mobility parameters from the big data set gathered from telecom operators. 

Urban MoVators

Urban MoVators is a dedicated RIS entrepreneurship program, that will scale the process of mobilizing the innovation and entrepreneurial potential of the urban mobility eco-system in Bulgaria through a specialized service and access provision to EIT Urban Mobility expertise, programs and opportunities. 

The Programme will source and nourish the most promising start-ups able to bring transformative and innovative mobility solutions, impactng the local ecosystem, enriching the RIS network and contributing to EU recognized mobility city challenges. 

It will provide a unique combination of features and resources that will deliver high value and impact, by blending the needs, entrepreneurial and industrial experse on a national level with EIT Urban Mobility Business Creation Programs and will prepare Bulgarian innovators for market immersion and deployment of successful mobility solutions. 

urbanDRONEscheduler

The project urbanDRONEscheduler aims to deliver a real-time digital platform for drone operation in urban areas based on an approved predefined flight route strategy. The platform consists of a Drone Flight Control Centre (DFCC) supervised by the city authorities on the server-side and an app/https-based application on the client side. 

Through the client app, a drone user requests a ride defining the time, start & final destination and the cargo. DFCCapproves corridor routes in real-time based on risk analysis, cargo and drone performance as well as external factors such as weather conditions. During the flight, the DFCC monitors the drone ride with the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) involving continuous flight auditing and management on a possible enforcement interface. 

This pan-EU project is being realized by a team of higher education institutions and four business partners from three different RIS countries and two different EIT Urban Mobility hubs, and by testing in three living lab RIS cities.
