New exhibition segment Mobility+: Platform for connected mobility
Anyone looking for an alternative to cars in the city may nowadays want to use more than one mode of transport. Intermodal transport is the key – ranging from public transport, ride sharing to scooter and bicycle hire. With its Mobility+ segment, InnoTrans is devoting a new segment to this type of travel. “This is where companies exhibiting new mobility services can meet domestic and international transport companies, transport networks and administrations, and display their intermodal concepts and systems to the industry“, says Kerstin Schulz, the director of InnoTrans.
Mobility+: smart mobility services
Exhibitors’ products and services will range from shared mobility, mobility apps with travel information, booking and payment functions, to technology solutions such as on-demand transit systems and flying objects such as drones. Other solutions on display will be first/last mile options such as ride sharing, a service provided by Door2door from Berlin and an international company called Via Transportation. Exhibitors and products will include DB Connect, ioki, CleverShuttle and the transport optimisation software Optibus. With its platform for self-driving vehicle fleets, BestMile wants to exploit this form of transport. The automated platform can manage both fixed routes and on-demand services as well as vehicles from various makes.
“At InnoTrans 2022 we look forward to offering an insight into the operational practicability of on-demand solutions in public transport, and together with leading industry players to discussing how we can sensibly integrate new mobility services into public transit systems, in order to make convenient mobility services available anywhere at any time,“ said Bruno Ginnuth, CEO and co-founder of CleverShuttle.
At InnoTrans 2022 the Berlin-based company ZEITMEILEN will be presenting software that handles traffic flows and rewards intelligent transport use. “The mobility sector needs to move more rapidly and decisively towards services that benefit the entire community. The trade fair can provide an impetus in that respect“, said Kai Horn, head of Sales & Marketing at ZEITMEILEN and its sister company highQ.
Lectures and networking
Accompanying the exhibition will be lectures at the Mobility+ Corner in Hall 7.1c, where visitors can follow these events live during InnoTrans 2022. Among the exhibitors displaying their innovations at the Mobility+ Corner will be ChargeSim, ISTmobil, ioki, mobimeo, MOTIONTAG and Via Transportation. Lecture topics will include smart charging infrastructures, digital passenger data surveys and the future of public transport. Mirko Ross, cybersecurity expert and CEO of asvin GmbH, will hold a lecture on the security challenges of intermodal mobility. Visitors can find an overview of all the lectures on the InnoTransPlus service portal under ’Events’.
Visit InnoTrans via connected mobility
Visitors to InnoTrans can find out first-hand what connected mobility means. Messe Berlin is placing the spotlight on an intermodal mobility concept. Under the heading ’Shared Mobility’, the focus of this broad-based concept is on smaller vehicles such as bicycles and scooters for the first and last mile. These can be used for rapid, emissions-free access to S-Bahn and mainline train stations and the inner city of Berlin.
InnoTrans is the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology and takes place every two years in Berlin. The five segments at InnoTrans are Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction. InnoTrans is organised by Messe Berlin. The thirteenth edition of InnoTrans will take place on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds from 20 to 23 September 2022. More details are available online at www.innotrans.com.
