car2go is a new mobility solution redefining individual transportation in rapidly growing urban areas. It provides an innovative mode of “on-demand” transportation which compliments existing public transportation alternatives by bridging the gaps commonly associated with the “first and last mile” of a public transit commute.
car2go was looking for a connected navigation software solution that had all the necessary interfaces for server communication and allowed for easy human machine interface (HMI) integration.
car2go’s navigation solution was based on EB’s street director software. Cities may have special car2go parking spots. To make the driver aware of them, their locations are dynamically fed into EB street director from an external server. Free spots appear in green and occupied spots in red.
car2go benefitted from EB street director’s well-defined interfaces for connected applications, platform integration, and HMI. The company was able to use EB street director as an out-of-the-box solution, sparing expensive integration time and valuable time to market.
