Data Systems and Travel Assistance

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. 


Electromobility in Dresden

The EmiD project, coordinated by the Fraunhofer IVI, aimed at identifying obstacles regarding the use of electric vehicles and overcoming them by the application of appropriate measures. The basis for this was the acquisition of data on a broad scientific basis, which was followed by detailed analyses and prototypical implementations of concepts for electromobility. Results of the project work, which received support from the funding program »Schaufenster Bayern-Sachsen: ELEKTROMOBILITÄT VERBINDET«, include an intelligent booking system for electric vehicles, an on-board unit as well as an inductive charging system. 


Public Transport Services with Wearable Devices for Different Mobility Types

Guide2Wear 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. The SMART-WAY technology, which has been developed during a prior project at the Fraunhofer IVI, is taken as a starting point.

SMART-WAY Public Transport Navigation System

Mobile Public Transport Navigation

Mobile Information services for public transport already exist in many regions. These, however, often merely provide information about stops and connections. The SMART-WAY app, on the other hand, allows the users for the first time to navigate the public transport network the way they are used to from car navigation systems. The mobile companion always leads them on the fastest way to their destination, even in unknown transport networks.


Gemeinschaftlich-e-Mobilität (Shared e-Mobility): Vehicles, Data and Infrastructure

In the electromobile future, the inhabitants of cities will use the majority of all vehicles and infrastructure in a collaborative way. This is the vision of the Fraunhofer researchers working on the GeMo project. Their aim is to make their vision come true by developing technological solutions for the shared use of resources for mobility.



Navigation in Public Transport with a Modular Service Architecture for Integration in External Applications

The objective of the collaborative project NADINE was the development of a door-to-door navigation in public transport which is universal, transferable in area and content as well as fare-sensitive. In addition to the public transport network, interchanges and access to and from the stations have been taken into consideration. Together with 5 partners, the Fraunhofer IVI developed this intermodal routing system, which seamlessly connects public routes and pedestrian navigation. Thanks to the system's open service architecture, the software can be used by third-party applications and supports the integration of a smartphone ticketing service.
