FourC Releases First Deployment of Real-time Mobility App
Trondheim/Norway, Oct 18, 2021 --- The first public release of FourC’s OEM MaaS real-time app is now available for the citizens of Trondheim and Tröndelag county. Branded as Mobee by Trondheim municipality, the app shows all mobility options for users at their location in real-time.
The development of the app and the GeoEngine backend is supported by the EU as part of the Positive CityxChange project, in which Trondheim (Norway) and Limerick (Ireland) are the so-called Lighthouse Cities.
In order to achieve climate change goals, reducing fossil-based energy usage and improving city living conditions, shared and dynamic mobility solutions are essential. However, acquiring a good overview of these mobility offers from all suppliers is not easy. The new app will make this task a lot simpler, in addition to helping the various mobility providers to make their offers known to a larger audience.
The solution is fully generic and can be implemented with custom company branding in any city, region or country with minimal effort. In addition to the deployment in Trondheim and the upcoming ones in Limerick and other project cities, the first commercial customer has been signed. A custom company version will be deployed already in December this year under the customer’s own brand name.
The app is released as early access for Android on Google Play. The web version is planned for release in December, while the iPhone version comes in winter 2022.
During the remaining 2 years of the +CxC project, new features like bus and scooter ticketing, and proof-of-location (using the IOTA distributed ledger technology) is in the pipeline, in addition to features requested by users.
