The pace of change in the automotive industry is accelerating. Markets are evolving from manufacturers designing cars as stand-alone products into entirely new forms of mobility services focused on driver experience. This complimentary, one-hour webinar will highlight key technologies for data and service monetization relevant to the automotive sector, as well as the legal aspects associated with electro-mobility as a new form of mobility service.
Mr. Thomas Walz of IBM will provide an overview of key features of NeMo (an EU-funded H2020 Technology and Innovation Project), relevant standards, and the importance of common information models and new standards in the automotive industry. Ms. Monika Menz of Vossius & Partner will then explore the legal aspects involved in the creation of an E-mobility platform. Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A segment.
"Hyper-Network for Electromobility" from Thomas Walz
Hyper-Network for electro-mobility is expected to boost the usage of Electrical Vehicles by enabling increased accessibility to vehicle data, charging infrastructure, ICT services, and wider interconnectivity. NeMo will facilitate increased service availability, better planning, and more secure electric grid operation by making backend data and services accessible to the right actors and bringing down digital (interfaces) and physical (location) barriers.
The Hyper-Network of tools, models, and services established through NeMo will allow organizations involved in providing or using electro-mobility services to interact through common interfaces and information models for objects, data, and services. Standards and open source are very important to the automotive industry and play major roles in building this infrastructure for future mobility services.
"Legal Gateways for Innovative E-mobility Platforms" from Monika Menz
Creating an innovative E-mobility platform faces many legal challenges. This part of the webinar will venture into the ICT regulatory framework with a particular focus on Data Protection (both GDPR and specific energy law requirements) and the IT security regulations that come into play. With this in mind, we will inspect the challenges and options for blockchain solutions as well as smart grids relevant in an innovative E-mobility platform. Data access and data ownership in addition to data portability and data protection by design are also legal principles that will play key roles in developing innovative E-mobility platforms.
