What is NOMAD?
Smartphone apps already allow you to plan travel chains, book trips and purchase tickets. Until now, however, smart mobility services have been fragmented and technology companies have not significantly collaborated on a national scale, much less across borders.
The Nordic Open Mobility and Digitalization (NOMAD) project aims to enable seamless mobility using several modes of transportation across the Nordics. The project will introduce a market enabler framework of technology and business practices for Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and other smart mobility services. Viability of the open framework will be demonstrated through practical MaaS roaming pilots involving several MaaS operators in the Nordics.
We started out in October 2019 under the name ‘Nordic Mobility Innovation Platform - NMIP’, but we soon changed to NOMAD because we wanted a concise and more brandable name.
NOMAD is supported by Nordic Innovation (an organization under the Nordic Council of Ministers), and the core members are: Kyyti Group, ITS Nordics (Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland), UbiGo, RISE, TOI and Capital Region of Denmark
Use your familiar mobility app anywhere
Just like you can use your mobile phone in another country - the goal is to make it possible to use your favorite mobility app in other cities, regions and countries as well.
Creating a seemsless mobility experience
The project aims to set the framework and data foundation for new mobility services that combines public transport, rental cars, car pooling, city bikes and more.
Quality open mobility data
Building upon the European data regulation as well as other project working with mobility data - t.ex. ODIN - the project aims to secure high quality, realiable, real-time data from all kinds of transport modes - freely available for new mobility solutions.
