Analysing stakeholder and business model shifts in the new mobility ecosystem

Figure 1: Business model radar for the Micromobility service The mobility field is rapidly changing due to, among others, digitalisation, as well as the uprise of small and large electric vehicles, business models, and changing stakeholder roles. More and more services combine many disciplines, which often means that services require multiple types of stakeholders to become effective. For this reason, a stakeholder analysis was performed in the context of the nuMIDAS Deliverable 2.1, in combination with a business model analysis. The analysis was performed using a Service Dominant Business Model Radar (SDBM/R) approach. The SDBM/R gives insight into which stakeholders can be [...]

Understanding the risks and weaknesses of existing methods and mobility tools

Figure 1: nuMIDAS methods and tools design approach The nuMIDAS project conducted research to gain a deep understanding of the weaknesses of existing methods and tools supporting transport/mobility researchers, planners, and policy makers, as well as the identification of critical parameters that need to be updated, extended, removed, or completely re-drafted. The emergence of new mobility solutions and technologies has significantly affected the principles upon which current practices are based. The results are now published and available in Deliverable 3.1. Our research takes new concepts into account, required to assess more realistically and in an updated manner transport users’ attitudes, preferences, and choices, [...]

Defining nuMIDAS use cases through UML models

Figure 1. Intermediate UML representation of UC2 Nowadays, the mobility ecosystem has drastically changed its shape through the rise of new stakeholders and services, including the gradual penetration of connected and automated vehicle technologies, and mobility schemes relying on the principles of sharing economy. Although there exists already much research upon which many tools have been developed for supporting mobility planners and policy makers, there are still needs, which are differentiated in many thematic categories (e.g., transport planning and dynamic traffic monitoring), that require further research and development of additional tools to meet the current needs of the cities. Our [...]

Service-oriented solutions for a changing mobility ecosystem

Figure 1: nuMIDAS model – Service-oriented architecture    The mobility ecosystem is evolving rapidly, whereby we observe the rise of new stakeholders and services. On top of that, new services (e.g., shared mobility, electric infrastructure management, and MaaS) operate in an environment in which traditional services (e.g., public transport, last mile logistics, and travel demand modelling) are well established. The enormous amount of gathered data by municipalities, service providers, and other related or unrelated parties is the key to the ability to make these complex choices. Successfully integrating all these various technologies and solutions for designing the transport system and policies remains a challenge. The first specialised task of the nuMIDAS project was the state-of-the-art assessment of traditional research [...]
