Before the adoption of any revolutionary technology, industries need standards and specifications to build the foundational infrastructure enabling the creation of products and services that can communicate and work together.

There are four types of MOBI Working Group Standards:

0001 — Business White Papers (WP)

MOBI Business White Papers are high-level business reviews that discuss issues and propose solutions to the most pressing transportation challenges. WPs explore solutions with consideration to ecosystem stakeholders, new strategies, solutions, and policies.                    Intended Audience: C-suite and senior management

0002 — Use Cases and Business Requirements (UC)

MOBI Use Cases and Business Requirements documents describe pain points, stakeholder responsibilities, and high-level business requirements for solutions. UCs describe workflow for a particular use and business requirements are technology agnostic. UCs provide high-level requirements that potential solutions must meet in order to resolve stakeholder needs.                                                                Intended Audience: Project and product owners

0003 — Technical Specifications (TS)

MOBI Technical Specifications define recommended minimum interfaces between systems/modules and data specification exchanged in the process leading up to a reference implementation. This process allows independently developed systems to be interoperable.      Intended Audience: Product owners and solutions architects

0004 — Reference Implementation Architecture (RI)

MOBI Reference Implementation Architectures prescribe and recommend a solution architecture that stakeholders can refer to when they deploy solutions. RIs ensure that the stakeholder requirements described in TS and UC are met. RIs are vendor agnostic.                        Intended Audience: Solutions architects and developers

Full access to WP and UC and partial access to TS and RI are below. Full access to TS and RI documents are reserved for MOBI members, please contact Matt Shi ( or fill out our Membership Inquiry Form.

Vehicle Identity (VID) Working Group

The VID working group aims to define a digital document that is a verifiable link to a specific vehicle, a minimum representation of that vehicle’s digital twin. VID can be used to establish existence, manage access control, confirm ownership history, and contains key events in the life of a vehicle.

1.VID Business White Paper

MOBI VID0001/WP/2021 — Version 2.0 

The VID WP introduces a business review for the MOBI VID to accompany the standards created by the WG.   

2.VID I Technical Specifications

MOBI VID0003/TS/2019 — Version 1.0

The VID I TS specifies the first standard for Vehicle Identity (VID), which represents the principal digital foundation of future mobility.

3.VID II Use Cases and Business Requirements 

MOBI VID0002/UC/2021 — Version 1.0

The VID II UC extends VID I to data related to lifetime events and transfer of ownership. Two main use cases are explored: vehicle registration and maintenance traceability. 

4.VID II Reference Implementation Architecture 

MOBI VID0004/RI/2021 — Version 1.0

The VID II RI introduces a technical standard for selected VID-based use cases, describing repeated information flows that serve as building blocks for more complicated use cases. Therefore it is the technical counterpart of the Vehicle Identity Use Cases and Business Requirements (MOBI VID0002/UC/2021) standard.

Electric Vehicle Grid Integration (EVGI) Working Group

The EVGI working group aims to aid the increasing adoption of electric vehicles by creating interoperable systems for governments, utilities, and the mobility industry alike. These systems will enable a better way to manage the grid load, calculate carbon offsets and generate carbon credits, implementation of peer to peer services. The first standard defines the system and data requirements for three core use case areas – Vehicle to Grid (V2G), Peer to Peer (P2P), and Tokenized Carbon Credits (TCC) applications.

1.EVGI Business White Paper

MOBI EVGI0001/WP/2020 — Version 1.1

The EVGI WP covers the current state of affairs with regards to powering electric vehicles, the growth of decentralized renewable energy production, and carbon credit generation/trading. Key use cases are explored and the role of the standard to aid this development is explained.

2.EVGI Technical Specifications 

MOBI EVGI0003/TS/2020 — Version 1.0

The EVGI TS specifies the high-level system design, reference architecture, multi-party processes, and the EVGI specific data structures that are utilized throughout the ecosystem. The TS provides guidance to implementation for the EVGI standard, covering three primary use cases and their process flows.
