Data and Service Platforms for Mobility Applications

Mobility Data Space

With the Mobility Data Space, an open data space is being created. In addition to the secure exchange, it enables the development of real-time traffic data and sensitive mobility data, and connects existing data platforms. In this way, comprehensive mobility data can be made available at national level in the future.


The DatenTanken (DataRecharging) project develops and defines digital business processes concerning the economically viable operation of mobility and energy services and transfers the results to digital business models. This way, the grid-compatible construction of both the public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in Dresden as well as the partly public infrastructure for logistics providers and residential building companies is promoted.


Scenario-Based Platform for the Inspection of Automated Driving Functions

The SePIA project will develop a complex validation platform for highly automated driving, electronic subsystems and the overall vehicle, integrating real scenarios with extensive accident data, information from accident reconstruction reports as well as vehicle data and video recordings.


Based on AI-supported analyses of the short-term and long-term charging requirements (e. g. during trade fairs or holidays), the d-E-mand project will develop a service platform for business customers and drivers of electric cars. The platform will be able to predict the demand for charging current for EV and will be tested in Hanover and Dresden.


The REMAS project is creating a management solution for the realization of automated driving in urban areas. In addition, the project helps the Saxon economy to unlock innovation potential in the areas of automated and connected driving as well as intelligent transport systems.

Cognitive Agriculture

In the Fraunhofer lighthouse project »COGNAC«, the Fraunhofer IVI is collaborating with 7 other Fraunhofer institutes, e. g. in the development of a digital data space for agricultural purposes (Agricultural Data Space).

Assistance Systems


The project will develop test technologies and tools for the efficient investigation of automated and networked assistance and driving functions across manufacturers and vehicle models.

The test technologies are to verify the correct and reliable environment perception by means of dynamic traffic elements.


Cross-Transport Mode Warning and Support System for Cyclists

The objective of RAD IM FOKUS (FOCUS ON BIKES) is the design and prototypical implementation of a warning and support system across all transport modes with a focus on cyclists. Through the integration and connection of different transport modes such as bicycles, passenger cars and public transport, the comprehensive study of safety aspects is possible.


Public Transport Services with Wearable Devices for Different Mobility Types

The Guide2Wear project studies wearable devices such as wie smartwatches and smart glasses and their potential for the mobility services of tomorrow. The project's main focus is on the implementation of a navigation system for public transport.

Technologies for Future Mobility


Digital Villages Saxony

The »Digital Villages Saxony« project investigates the potential of digitalization for everyday life in rural areas. Together with the local population, administration and researchers from the Fraunhofer institutes IESE and IVI, digital services are being developed and tested in the model region Lommatzscher Pflege in Saxony.


MAtchUP – Urban Transformation for European Cities

Dresden is one of the three lighthouse cities in the MAtchUP Smart City project. New solutions for sustainable urban mobility are being developed here, e. g. by implementing new charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.


EIT Urban Mobility

The EIT Urban Mobility initiative uses cities as living labs to demonstrate system solutions for more efficient mobility. The aim is to transform public spaces and improve the quality of life in cities.
