Mobility Working Group
The Working Group will cover the entire value chain of the transport sector, focusing in particular on Mobility-as-a-Service, Smart Cities, automated driving, traffic management, clean mobility solutions, logistics and supply chains.
Objectives for 2021
The WG has agreed on four objectives around which it will carry out its annual work:
- - Map the blockchain ecosystem in the mobility sector to clarify who are the main stakeholders involved and what are the use cases (short-term)
- - Identify barriers and challenges for the implementation and deployment of DLT (long-term)
- - Enable dialogue between stakeholders of the sector (long-term)
- - Develop guidelines and specifications for the development of trusted DLT applications for Mobility (long-term)
Outputs for 2021
The Working Group is aiming to publish a data-driven report on mobility and convene a roundtable based on potential sector use cases.
Why is it essential?
Blockchain and other DLTs can solve challenges in the transport industry and mobility services where the sharing of data and transactions among multiple actors is a hard requirement but is complicated by the existence of siloes along with the lack of trust between parties from different sectors.
Many applications based on blockchain and DLTs currently exist for the Supply Chain and Mobility sectors, and several initiatives have been set up at the EU, national or city level. There is, however, still a lack of awareness and knowledge about the true potential of the enabling technology for intelligent transport systems. This is particularly true among the public sector and public authorities due to the fact that the concept is still abstract for many stakeholders.
