In a rapidly changing world, E-mobility and Geospatial technologies are the key to sustainable development. Germany, amidst the buzz of new means of transportation like e-mobility is still characterized as country with highly developed public transport systems. New strategies are being made to make the mobility user friendly and minimize the pollutions in city regions. One of the most talked about topic is e-mobility.
E-mobility is considered to bring about both economic and environmental advantages. In terms of economy, the global market is expected to grow by 29% annually by 2020. At the same time, the aim of the German government is to bring at least 1 million electric cars onto the streets by 2020. In order to follow the market needs, companies are gearing up to start producing electric & hybrid cars. Environmentally, electric cars have many advantages over gas and diesel such as fewer greenhouse gases and any ozone pollution.
More and more companies are developing innovative business model which include shared mobility options as one of the key elements. For example. Car2go with its grand success in Germany, has been implemented in newer cities.
Likewise, companies are investing a lot of research and development and charging stations as well as charging time has been in the centerstage of research areas. As the region of Stuttgart wants to continue its pioneering role in the sustainable development world, Institute of Transportation (Ifv) announced the “Masterplan Fast Charging Infrastructure Region Stuttgart” which is a better construction of charging points in the city. Although, the plan concludes an app with the number of the existing charging points, the time needs to charge the battery, the rush hours of the points, the accessibility and other useful information.
Role of Geospatial Technologies:
GIS applications play important role in both Car2Go & Institute of Transportation combine e-mobility . Infact, geospatial Technologies are all around us in our phones, cars, on the news, in most of the mobile applications we use. While Geospatial Technology is mainly considered as showing digital maps, its integration with emerging smart technologies offer real-time geospatial data and provide when considered for mobility, it can do wonders foe efficient mobility to the citizens. It makes people´s life easier, enables better city governance through traffic predictions, better asset monitoring and a smart public transportation system.
InSell with its multi-sectoral knowhow, is developing a GIS based mobility concept for the cities works mainly on calculating the “Dynamic Pricing” based in given constraints ( such as pollution level in a particular city region, traffic congestion at a given time in a given street). The details of the dynamic price models are being worked out and would be available in the next blog.
Data Procesisng & Geospatial Application development are highlighted on the service portfolio of Insell GmbH. Insell adds value further with its extensive experience in web based geospatial application development which harness the potential of integrated smart technologies. Further, partners of InSell have extensive experience in leveraging potential of new real time data sources like traffic cameras, speed data, location data to understand the scenarios and develop solutions.
InSell helps clients in selecting state of the art technical solutions to address the diverse requirements of emerging mobility solutions and devising an approach to implement them more effectively with the project partners. Also helps clients developing initial concepts and designs of application by incorporating or linking geospatial and smart components, 2D and 3D geospatial datasets and integration of sector specific requirements.
