Baden-Württemberg promotes digitalisation in transport

Baden-Württemberg supports the nationwide data portal Mobility Data Space and is thus advancing digitalisation in the mobility sector. With the help of digital technologies, mobility can be made more effective and climate-friendly.

"Progress in mobility is data-driven. In Baden-Württemberg, we want to promote digital business models and the digital networking of mobility systems and thus strengthen our competitiveness," says Prime Minister of the State Baden-Württemberg Winfried Kretschmann, stressing the importance of digitalisation in the mobility sector. In order to further promote this, the state of Baden-Württemberg will now become a shareholder in the Data Sharing Community of the Mobility Data Space.  


The treasure data

The new nationwide data platform Mobility Data Space (MDS) is set up by a neutral non profit organisation. Via the MDS, different partners in the mobility sector can independently exchange data to enable and further develop innovative, environmentally- and user-friendly mobility concepts. The MDS follows an open-data approach and is an important element in developing sustainable digital solutions for the mobility sector.


Baden-Württemberg's contribution to digitalisation 

The state of Baden-Württemberg supports the further development of the MDS. The Ministry of Transport Baden-Württemberg wants to provide data to the MDS from four projects - partly from the Strategic Dialogue for the Automotive Sector in Baden-Württemberg -  and thus make a technical contribution on the way to more digital networking in transport:

  • Mobility data for more road safety
  • Traffic situation forecast
  • Digital traffic sign register
  • Digital Mobil BW

Further use cases are to be defined in the Strategic Dialogue for the Automotive Sector in Baden-Württemberg.
