Open Ecosystem for Smart Mobility System Operation and Maintenance

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1209)


In this study, we provide novel insight into operating and maintaining a heterogeneous and expanding vehicle fleet in a smart city environment. Smart mobility is booming and comprises an important part of the development of smart cities. City bikes are already widely used in many cities and new types of vehicle, such as scooters, have already entered the market. Smart mobility systems also create new infrastructure in cities that requires daily operation and maintenance. Poorly managed operation and maintenance causes low usage of smart mobility systems and on the other side, can be very costly to cities. Therefore, we provide a novel method according to Industry 4.0 standards to manage the challenges with the help of an open platform that connects smart mobility systems and service providers.
