Friday, Mar 23, 12:30-13:30h, in Pav. K16, we have our next cluster meeting. Last time, Rick presented his part of recent work done by him and Ege for the C-Mobile project. We had a lively discussion, which left no time for Ege’s part. Therefore Ege will present this Friday his part on C-Mobile; see below for the abstract of both talks.
Today, vehicles are connected devices that host information systems to aid drivers in many respects. The domain of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) concerns with improving road safety, traffic efficiency and comfort of driving by enabling digital connectivity between vehicles (V2V), between vehicles and transport infrastructure (V2I) and other combinations (V2X). In the past few years, a considerable amount of European projects (such as FREILOT, eCoMove, Compass4D, CO-GISTICS, CONVERGE) demonstrated deployment of C-ITS Applications throughout Europe. However, these C-ITS Applications remain isolated and limited in scope due to the fact that they have been designed with different objectives in mind, and developed and deployed independently from each other. C-MobILE (Accelerating C-ITS Mobility Innovation and depLoyment in Europe) is aimed at large-scale deployment of C-ITS services by ensuring that interoperability and seamless service availability are prioritised and at an acceptable cost for end-users.
Towards this objective C-MoBILE project is developing business models and use cases particularly from the end-user’s perspective, to make sure deployed C-ITS services are sustainable and perform their job correctly.
This presentation will discuss the results of tasks 2.2 and 2.5 within the C-MobILE project, which describe the derivation of initial business models which surround the deployment of C-ITS, as well as the elaboration of use-cases for services to facilitate their implementation.
For deriving adequate business models, workshops have been organised at the various pilot sites, which included partners within the project as well potential or interested stakeholders. Each workshop involved interactive poster sessions which used the Service-Dominant Business Model Radar (SDBM/R) tool as a basis. Each stakeholder was stimulated to actively participate in the derivation of suitable business models. In the end, this resulted in a set of 11 service-dominant business models which encapsulate one or more C-ITS services to be deployed.
To establish the functionality of the services, the use case analysis technique has been employed to organise the functional requirements in the shape of user scenarios. To ensure that each service meets the expectations of the main user and the relevant stakeholder(s), a separate use case analysis was performed for each of the 20 C-ITS services at the individual service level. These analyses were performed in a collaborative way in which partners (including local sites) contributed according to their prior knowledge and experience on specific services. In the end, a total of 36 use cases have been defined for 20 C-ITS services.
