The Opensource Platform Ecosystem for Mobility and Energy


The Opensource Platform Ecosystem for Mobility and Energy

A Scalable Tech Foundation for Smart City Initiatives

Integrating various devices and sensors endowed with different technologies with the existing communication infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges in developing sustainable and efficient Smart Cities.

MOVENS is an IoT platform designed to be the technological infrastructure for the implementation of Smart City initiatives starting with the integration between mobility and energy sectors.

Competitive advantage is structured on three aspects:

  • High-level ARCHITECTURE designed to be the Smart City Technology Hub  enabling native integration with 3rd party urban ecosystem services.
  • OPEN-SOURCE ensuring full stakeholder control over the entire system, quick global coverage, evolutionary community support, and ecosystem creation.
  • EXCLUSIVE ADOPTION OF GLOBAL STANDARDS ensuring full interoperability, replicability, and scalability.

The platform is evolving according to global standards defined by two distinguished alliances in which Henshin Group is a partner, MOBI (Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative) and EBA (European Battery Alliance).
