AUTOPILOT demonstrated the convergence and technical integration of IoT, Automated Driving and Mobility as a Service showcasing across Europe and world-wide how IoT enhances the quality of mobility use cases. Especially, in the complex scenarios of urban driving and shared Mobility as a Service (MaaS), IoT technology proved to be indispensable for the early detection and awareness of obstacles such as pedestrians, cyclists or other Vulnerable Road Users which are beyond line-of-sight of autonomous vehicles.
A total of eight IoT platforms were operated to run the specific automated mobility services. The proprietary platforms were networked through the well-known oneM2M interoperability platform. This is particularly useful for sharing selected data types relevant to all automated driving vehicles and applications. The IoT enhanced automated driving use cases of AUTOPILOT helped to identify data sets and data formats towards future large-scale deployment and highlighted the need for open and dynamic horizontal data marketplaces to bring together the resources (e.g. innovators, platform providers, operators) required within the highly innovative eco-system in which IoT enhanced automated mobility services operate.
Only a full integration of traffic objects and data sources into interoperable IoT platforms will promote a future economy of scale which is the key enabler for any kind of large-scale market uptake.
