The recent IAA Mobility 2023 event in Munich was a landmark occasion for the moveID consortium, as we successfully demonstrated our innovative solutions for the future of mobility. This blog post will delve into the key highlights of the event and discuss the strategic importance of our demonstrations for both the moveID consortium partners and the wider context of GAIA-X.
A Glimpse into the Future: A moveID Demonstrator
At the heart of our showcase was the moveID Park & Charge demonstrator, a solution designed to address the increasing demand for parking and EV charging infrastructure. This innovative system, whose front-end was based on an IAA Version of the MOBIX app, rewards the use of micromobility and electric vehicles, encouraging a shift towards more sustainable modes of transport.
The moveID Park & Charge demonstrator was not just a concept, but a fully functional system that integrated with electric vehicles, traffic infrastructure, and charging stations. This integration allowed for seamless transactions, with parking and charging fees paid via Google Pay. The demonstrator was a testament to the power of decentralized digital identity infrastructures in mobility, showcasing the potential of state-of-the-art technologies in transforming the way we move.
The Strategic Importance: moveID and GAIA-X
The moveID consortium’s demonstration at the IAA Mobility 2023 was not just about showcasing our latest innovations. It was also about highlighting the strategic importance of these developments in the context of GAIA-X.
GAIA-X is a project initiated by the European Union to create a federated, open data infrastructure based on European values. The moveID consortium, led by Bosch, with the other members being Denso, deltaDAO, Datarella, Ocean Protocol, Fetch.ai, htw Saar, Peaq and 51 Nodes is part of the GAIA-X 4 Future Mobility project family. Our demonstration at the IAA Mobility 2023 was a live example of how GAIA-X’s principles can be applied to the mobility sector.
Our moveID Park & Charge demonstrator utilized DIDs on the Peaq blockchain, as well as authentication and authorization via self-sovereign identity credentials compliant with the upcoming standards for the EU Digital Identity Wallet. These SSI credentials allow for autonomous transactions between vehicles and connected infrastructure, highlighting the potential of decentralized systems in the mobility sector.
Looking Ahead: The Future of Mobility
The successful demonstration of the moveID Park & Charge system at the IAA Mobility 2023 is just the beginning. We are committed to continuously innovating and developing solutions that address the challenges of modern mobility.
Our vision for the future of mobility is one where cars have their own IDs and wallets, using a mobile app to find and book parking spots and charging stations, and verify and pay fully autonomously. This vision aligns with the broader shift towards the Economy of Things (EoT), where all things have some economic value and contribute to economic activity.
As we move forward, we will continue to work towards this vision, leveraging the power of AI, Web3, and privacy-preserving Identity technologies to create a more sustainable, efficient, and user-friendly mobility ecosystem.
The IAA Mobility 2023 was a significant milestone for the moveID consortium and the wider GAIA-X project. Our successful demonstrations highlighted the potential of decentralized digital identity infrastructures in transforming the mobility sector. As we look to the future, we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead as we continue to innovate and drive the future of mobility.
