From 16 to 19 September, the Swiss Mobility Arena will take place in Bern, and Galileo 4 Mobility will be present. The project will be presented by PILDO during the session "Integrating Shared Bikes with other Services". Points on the agenda are the project's pilots, Galileo in general, and the common MaaS architecture that was followed for designing the mobility services. Fore more information about the event and the full programme, have a look at the website.

On 11 June, Galileo 4 Mobility co-organised a Stakeholders Workshop on MaaS technologies during the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm. The workshop gathered six EU-funded projects that each focus on MaaS from a different perspective: Shift2MaaS (in collaboration with COHESIVE), IMOVE, My-TRAC and SMARTE), and Galileo 4 Mobility. The workshop welcomed approximately 30 attendees, both project consortium members as well as external stakeholders. Goal of the workshop was to bring together MaaS experts from different industries and viewpoints, in order to establish connections for potential future collaborations. A full report of the session is available here! Introductory presentations [...]
Self-driving, or autonomous, vehicles are currently being tested in different areas and some are currently in use in restricted zones. However, the operation of autonomous vehicles on roads that are open to traffic is still very limited. To address this issue, the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) and the EU-funded project Galileo4Mobility are launching a joint call for Expressions of Interest aiming to select an autonomous vehicle (POD) to operate a public transportation service within a predefined but open to traffic area. The selected company will have to provide the vehicle (POD) for the pilot duration (4-6 months) and the technical development needed in order [...]
The first Galileo 4 Mobility has officially kicked off! Launched in early May, this pilot is led by research institute CERTH/HIT and transportation company Taxiway and aims to fight congestion in Thessaloniki’s city centre through a taxi-sharing service. We spoke to Josep Maria Salanova Grau, Associate Researcher at CERTH/HIT, and Theodoros Stavridis, president of Taxiway, about the ins and outs of the pilot in Thessaloniki. Can you briefly discuss the pilot, and elaborate on how the service will benefit from Galileo technology? The pilot in Thessaloniki aims at reducing traffic congestion in the city centre by reducing the amount of [...]
From 9 to 12 June, the UITP Global Public Transport Summit will take place in Stockholm. With new mobility solutions and their integration into the public transport network being an important topic at the event, Galileo 4 Mobility will be present with one poster session and one workshop. On Tuesday 11 June (09:30 - 10:30), Galileo 4 Mobility Coordinator Martí Jofre will present the project at the poster session 'Integrating New Mobility Solutions in the Public Transport Governance Framework'. This session will explore the necessary governance models to accommodate new mobility solutions. You can find more info here. The other event will [...]
From 10 to 11 April, Galileo 4 Mobility was presented at “La Jornada Catalana de la Mobilitat 2019”, held in Caldes de Montbui, Catalonia. Organised by AMTU (Association of municipalities for Mobility and Urban Transport), the event gathered over 400 professionals from public administration and transport operators in Catalonia. Martí Jofre, coordinator of G4M, explained the benefits of using GALILEO for demand-responsive mobility services and MaaS (Mobility as a Service), as well as the five pilot demonstrators that are going to take place in three different European cities (Barcelona, Paris and Thessaloniki) this year within the scope of the project. [...]
On 21 February, the second Galileo 4 Mobility Advisory Group (AG) meeting took place in Paris. Hosted by partner Clem’, the day provided the opportunity for the G4M consortium to gather valuable feedback from the AG members on key issues related to the project, and discuss the latest developments of the pilot sites. The second part of the day saw a demonstration of the electric car sharing pilot led by Clem’. The meeting was concluded with a roundtable discussion on shared electro-mobility in the Ile De France region and a networking dinner. The AG meeting kicked off with the presentation of [...]
Within the framework of the Galileo 4 Mobility project, two workshops were held late December, one with AMB (Àrea metropolitana de Barcelona) and one with RACC (Reial Automòbil Club de Catalunya). The workshops aimed to define metrics which help improve the provision of mobility services and assess the performance of the pilots that both organisations will be carrying out in 2019. AMB will be testing the implementation of an on-demand bus service replacing a regular bus service, and RACC will be testing the benefits of completing a multimodal trip on its MaaS platform using a Galileo-enabled smartphone. Both workshops followed [...]
On January 25, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB) and Servei Català de Trànsit (SCT) had a first meeting to discuss the details of a potential new mobility service with autonomous vehicles on the university campus. During the meeting, issues such as the itinerary, frequency, users and technical specifications of the vehicle itself, were discussed. If implemented, the trial could be one of the pilots conducted in the GALILEO FOR MOBILITY framework. All three organisations showed great interest in testing the possibilities of an autonomous vehicle operating on the open road, since it would be a [...]
