Galileo-Enhanced MOTIT: an electric scooter sharing service for sustainable urban mobility
Background & Objectives
MOTIT is a unique and innovative electric scooter sharing service, in which users may pick up and drop off vehicles wherever and whenever they want. MOTIT allows users to reserve a scooter with their smartphone, and some minutes before the start of the trip he receives a notification on his smartphone with the position of the vehicle assigned. Vehicle positioning performance is key for the success of the service, since the user is informed on where to pick up his vehicle based on this source. G-MOTIT project aims to develop and integrating an EGNSS-based location technology. The location solution will be validated both functionally and operationally through a small-scale demonstration in Grand Paris region.
The objectives of the project are:
- to design and develop an independent EGNSS enabled positioning on-board unit that will be integrated into the service,
- to demonstrate and validate how the EGNSS-based positioning unit can bring added value to the service,
- to support the commercialisation of the G-MOTIT solution.
