A boost for EU transport ministers
With Germany chairing the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) organized an informal meeting between the transport ministers of the EU.
The ministers attended this meeting virtually on October 29 and 30, during which our members of the “KIMoNo” research project presented their capacity for innovation and resourcefulness in a livestream from the University of Passau.
Since the ministries of transport tend to also be responsible for digital infrastructure, it made sense to use the opportunity to present solutions with which Europa can become “fit for the future”.
Input from ONE LOGIC came in the form of two uses cases developed within the KIMoNo research project financed by the BMVI: optimization of logistics and optimization of traffic through AI.
We can use AI-assisted forecasts based on our Data Product Platform ONE DATA to help to improve truck routes thanks to the cross-docking algorithm. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the number of trips. This logic can also be applied to traffic volumes in urban centers – dominated by commuter flows – and was presented in a second case.
“Avoiding unnecessary transportation and a more efficient control of mobility and logistics offer ecological and economic benefits for society and economy. In addition to financial savings, the use of data science and artificial intelligence via ONE DATA can contribute to secure and sustainable transportation concepts,” says our founder and managing director, Dr. Andreas Böhm, on the relevance of this project. The transport ministers followed our ideas with interest, and we were able to convince with our data science and AI expertise as well as with the possibilities of our Data Product Platform ONE DATA.
