Project DORA solution was successfully showcased at Smart Island World Congress in Calvia, Mallorca which took place on 23-24th of April 2018. DORA presented its solution for seamless mobility to solve the challenges for smooth and stress-free door-to-door traveling, at the booth of ETRA and at the booth of the City of Palma resulting in interesting discussions and promoting the start of the trials.
DORA has designed and established an integrated information system that helps air passengers to optimise their travel from the origin of their travel to the airplane at the departing airport, as well as from the arrival airport to their final destination.
To ensure this, the DORA system provides mobile, seamless, and time optimised travel route recommendations to the airport and routing inside the airports. The passengers are guided through terminals via security checkpoints to their departure gates. DORA integrates all the necessary real-time information on disruptions in the land transport environments and on incidents within the airport terminals, to provide the fastest alternative routes. At any time, the DORA system is ensuring the accessibility of airport and airplane in accordance with individual passengers’ requirements.
The DORA solution is designed in a generic way and provides for software development a framework and open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to ensure that the door-to-door solution can be widely adopted independently from passengers and airports locations.
During the Smart Island Congress, DORA held a workshop on seamless mobility to showcase the results included the contributions of Smart Island Congress participants. Smart Island Congress is a place to exchange information on global challenges that connected islands tackle worldwide.
The overall goal to save 20% of the door-2-door travel time is going to be validated by the presented DORA Application in form of trials that are open until end of September between the cities of Berlin and Palma. The DORA smart devices application “DORApp” was attracting interest by the participants of the Smart Island Congress and visitors that experienced the user interface and functionality of the DORA seamless mobility solution.
