IDSA Communities





The Mobility Community

The auto­mo­ti­ve sec­tor is of utmost impor­t­ance for wealth, inno­va­ti­on and poli­ti­cal cloud for a Euro­pean Uni­on in bet­ween the USA and Chi­na. Main­tai­ning and gro­wing it’s near­ly 14 mil­li­on jobs in Euro­pe (ACEA 2019) requi­res suc­cess with new, future, next mobi­li­ty. This is the objec­ti­ve of our new Mobi­li­ty Data Space com­mu­ni­ty.

MISSION: Pro­mo­te use of the open IDS stan­dard for bet­ter mobi­li­ty

Suc­cess requi­res mobi­li­ty to be bet­ter for its users, the cus­to­mer, and the con­su­mer. Cus­to­mer-centri­ci­ty is no secret to busi­ness suc­cess. Peter Dru­cker, the famous foun­der of modern manage­ment advo­ca­ted it as the ulti­ma­te busi­ness pur­po­se long ago (Dru­cker 1954). The­re­fo­re, bet­ter is the key. And sin­ce IDS beca­me an offi­cial DIN stan­dard in 2020 (link), now is the time.


WHAT WE DO: Crea­te and com­mu­ni­ca­te con­tent

Con­tent is king: The com­mu­ni­ty crea­tes con­tent to add a new and valu­able per­spec­ti­ve. The­re is no shor­ta­ge of sto­ries on mobi­li­ty. We have to add how IDS can be hel­pful. Then, we have to talk about it, spread the word, evan­ge­li­ze, and get decisi­on makers to under­stand.

Join In!


We envi­si­on very spe­ci­fic, tan­gi­ble to-dos and deli­ver­a­bles, such as a white­pa­per as a living sto­ry­book with new insights from IDS, as well as first events to bring tog­e­ther IDS mobi­li­ty experts with decisi­on-makers.

First events and vide­os:

  1. IDSA Laun­ching Coali­ti­on Fest: IDSA Mobi­li­ty Data Space Com­mu­ni­ty
  2. Con­nec­ted Vehi­cle Con­fe­rence by Fre­nus: IDSA Mobi­li­ty Data Space

  3. Start­up Auto­bahn Expo: Future Mobi­li­ty with Data Space
  4. UPCOMING: Deut­sche Telekom’s #AIHack4Mobility

First sto­ries and white paper

  1. Meta­mor­pho­sis of Auto into Mobi­li­ty
  2. NPM Real­Lab HH
  3. Work in pro­gress: White­pa­per from pioneers, experts, and sci­en­tists

The Industrial Community

IDSA streng­t­hens its com­pe­ten­ces in indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion and stream­li­nes its offers for smart manu­fac­tu­ring eco­sys­tems in the IDS-Indus­tri­al Com­mu­ni­ty (IDS‑I). Indus­tri­al and aca­de­mic mem­bers of the Plat­form Indus­trie 4.0 pro­vi­de the core of this new com­mu­ni­ty, howe­ver, many other natio­nal, Euro­pean and Asi­an part­ners have joi­ned. This new com­mu­ni­ty streng­t­hens the exis­ting coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween IDSA and the Plat­form Indus­trie 4.0 as two com­pe­tence fiel­ds are com­bi­ned: The Platform’s know-how in Indus­trie 4.0 and IDSA‘s expe­ri­en­ces in data sharing eco­sys­tems and data sov­er­eig­n­ty.

MISSION: To enab­le design, set-up and ope­ra­ti­on

IDSA aims to gua­ran­tee data sov­er­eig­n­ty by an open, ven­dor-inde­pen­dent archi­tec­tu­re for a peer-to-peer net­work which pro­vi­des usa­ge con­trol of data from all domains. The IDS‑I is a fur­ther com­mu­ni­ty of the IDSA. It will map and adapt the IDS princi­ples and tech­no­lo­gies to the app­li­ca­ti­on domain of indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion.

The mis­si­on com­pri­ses the fol­lowing topics:

    1. To gather requi­re­ments on data sov­er­eig­n­ty inclu­ding data sharing, data usa­ge moni­to­ring and con­trol as well as data pro­ven­an­ce tracking by means of repre­sen­ta­ti­ve use case spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons.

    2. To map the­se requi­re­ments sys­te­ma­ti­cal­ly to the stan­dards, capa­bi­li­ties and recom­men­ded tech­no­lo­gies of the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on (IDSA) and the Plat­form Indus­trie 4.0 (PI4.0). 
    3. To deri­ve pro­files of IDSA/PI4.0 spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons that sup­port the requi­re­ments in indus­tri­al busi­ness eco-sys­tems on the basis of stan­dards and by means of com­mon gover­nan­ce models. 
    4. To vali­da­te and demons­tra­te the app­li­ca­bi­li­ty of the­se spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons by means of refe­rence test­beds, e.g. the IIC Test­bed Smart Fac­to­ry Web, and/or GAIA‑X use cases. 
    5. To con­tri­bu­te to the out­re­ach of the IDS archi­tec­tu­re and spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons to the com­mu­ni­ty of indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion and smart manu­fac­tu­ring.

Streng­t­he­ning the coope­ra­ti­on

The IDS‑I Com­mu­ni­ty will streng­t­hen the link bet­ween IDSA and the Plat­form Indus­trie 4.0 as well as the Indus­tri­al Inter­net Con­sor­ti­um and for­mal liai­son part­ners in the indus­tri­al sec­tor, such as the Robot Revo­lu­ti­on Initia­ti­ve, the Indus­tri­al Value Chain Initia­ti­ve, the Data Tra­ding Alli­an­ce and the OPC-Foun­da­ti­on.

Andre­as Teu­scher, Chief Infor­ma­ti­on Secu­ri­ty Offi­cer at SICK AG, and Dr.-Ing. Tho­mas Uslän­der, Head of Infor­ma­ti­on Manage­ment and Con­trol Tech­no­lo­gy at Fraun­ho­fer IOSB, are the elec­ted co-chairs of the IDS‑I Com­mu­ni­ty.

The Logistics Community

Lever­aging the Indus­tri­al Data Space for the logistics indus­try deman­ds for a domain-spe­ci­fic instan­tia­ti­on that addres­ses the cha­rac­te­ris­tics and com­plex natu­re of glo­bal sup­ply chains and trans­por­ta­ti­on net­works. This is why a Logistics Com­mu­ni­ty was foun­ded, in the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on. The com­mu­ni­ty aims at adop­ting and exten­ding the gene­ral con­cepts of the IDS to pro­vi­de a spe­ci­fic imple­men­ta­ti­on of a Logistics Data Space.
