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.
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.
Work in progress: Whitepaper from pioneers, experts, and scientists (If you wish to contribute, please contact Prof. Dr. Chris Schlueter Langdon)
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:
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Data is getting the "new blood", enabling strong tools and methods for P4 medicine (preventive, predictive, participatory, personalized). Medical data is often related to a person requiring to pay attention to his interest in sovereignty.
MISSION: Health Data Sovereignty, ‑Ethics & ‑Economy at everyone’s fingertips
Co-creation: Joint identification of real-world problems in the health & live science industry that could get solved by MED’DS.
Implementation: Realization of use cases on top of industry solutions
Citizens sovereignty:Determination of a guideline and development of concepts ensuring the sovereignty of the citizen as “data owner”
Data Economics:Definition of health data-driven business models paying attention to data ethics and legal affairs.
