The CALL4SMS Platform development

CALL4SMS PLATFORM FRAMEWORK
2020: Business Framework, Specification
2021: Factory Tool Development,
2021-2022: Checking the Viability of Factory tools through pilot testing

OUR GOALS AND VISION

The objective of the CALL4SMS project is to design and develop a common methodology and platform for the urban environment testing of connected and automated smart mobility solutions. The platform helps to compare the performance in different environments (western small city – Helmond; Central megapolis – Milano, Munich; Eastern rural city – Zalaegerszeg; Southern mid-size city – Vigo) of the European Union. The other unique value proposition is to involve citizen participation in the testing to create user-centric solutions.

ACTIVITIES

The central product/service of the project is a common CALL4SMS platform, which can provide unified platform services to all those, who wish to test new connected and automated mobility SMS in urban environment. This way cities equipped with urban mobility sensors can sell their aggregated urban mobility data to industry, using a proper methodology provided by academia, also focusing on citizen involvement issues. The unified CALL4SMS platform services will be offered by boundary spanning organization(s) (joining the different interest of city, academia and business). The target groups are local SMEs, start-ups; testing companies @ proving grounds; and multinational firms interested in SMS testing; early adopters can be the firms already tested their SMS in the proving grounds of the participating regions and wish to test these in urban setting as well. With the CALL4SMS alliance, partners can offer out each other’s environment for their local testing companies, so the reach out rate of each testing area can be multiplied and the bases for an EU scale urban connected and automated SMS testing established. The project will provide:

  • Income for data usage for cities;
  • Income for the platform operator for providing services to industry willing to test SMS in urban environment;
  • Additional tax revenue for cities from new businesses developed using the platform;
  • Cost reduction for city management for using newly developed SMS in the cities.
