The goal of the TaaS project is to develop a Digital Twin for the future implementation of Transport as a Service and intelligent ecosystems in business parks. In a first step, the necessary requirements will be collected from partners and various sources and validated in digital models using digital prototypes. These digital models will then be used as a basis for decision making for the development or adaptation of intelligent business parks. Finally, an economic and legal analysis will complete the digital twin, which will make TaaS implementable on a large scale.

The approach will be put into practice with the AEROPOLE 2 use case in Payerne, which will benefit from a detailed roadmap for the step-by-step implementation of efficient and sustainable mobility in the business park area, in a manner consistent with the pace of settlements and new constructions on site. This responds to a growing and evolving need and will be an important asset in attracting new companies to the business park.

Two elements make the TaaS project unique and pioneering in Europe. On the one hand, its rich inter-cantonal and multi-field consortium, composed of 14 companies from different sectors and an academic team of 4 universities combining interdisciplinary skills such as engineering, economics and law. On the other hand, this project will study mobility in a multi-dimensional plan by considering the transport in its globality between, but also inside, buildings, its energetic aspects and its functioning elements within the infrastructure. The combination of these two axes, approached in an interdisciplinary way, is the key to a complete and holistic understanding of tomorrow’s mobility in business parks. The results of this project can then be applied to many other applications, such as hospitals, nursing homes, industrial parks, etc. Thanks to this project, the partners will gain competence and competitiveness in an innovative sector with high growth potential.
