Galileo set to solve local mobility issues
RACC will develop an app for Barcelona commuters to assist them in their door-to-door daily mobility needs. The smartphone running the app will integrate Galileo location technology. It will provide traffic and parking information at destination, facilitating the combination with other more convenient, more sustainable modes of last-mile transport, namely an electric scooter-sharing service. Typically, the users will drive their own car to a car park (with information provided by the app, i.e. location, capacity, opening hours, fares, etc.) and continue the trip to their final destination in a shared e-scooter. The app will present, in a single and convenient interface, the available shared e-scooters to be taken once the car has been parked. Some of the e-scooters in the fleet will be geolocated using Galileo technology.
The app will be integrated with supporting systems from the shared fleet operator through a bridging platform and a set of APIs developed by RACC in coordination with the fleet operator and its specific technical requirements.
The app will show the range and availability of motosharing services.
This integration will create an informative park and ride scheme and will constitute an informative MaaS scheme promoting the intermodality of Electric Light vehicles with other modes (especially car), therefore, fostering a more sustainable mobility.
