Members of the MOBI VID I and II, EVGI, CMDM, FSSC, SC, and UBMI working groups formed the DRIVES Program in April 2021 to ideate, incubate, and demonstrate multiparty applications using MOBI’s Web3 Digital Infrastructure (Citopia and the Integrated Trust Network).
With electric vehicle (EV) sales skyrocketing in recent years, many EV owners are seeking integrated, user-friendly ways to manage and maintain their vehicles and interact with EV charging infrastructure while preserving data privacy for both vehicle and infrastructure owners.
To this end, MOBI and our members developed a pilot to demonstrate on Citopia using ITN as the trust anchor. The user journey involves EV drivers searching for charging stations along their route, making reservations, tracking charging progress, and paying via Citopia. Citopia is designed to facilitate easier EV charging overall and make the booking-payment process as seamless as possible while giving the EV owner access to battery state of health (SOH) and state of charge (SOC) data.
