From “Mobility” to “E-mobility” services

With related to the NDA signed with our client, we will not disclose its full name publicly.

How an automated, unified and connected functional platform open the door to new innovations, partnerships and business opportunities.

The context of our mission

We were hired by our client, a  leader in the Automotive industry and a well renowned French Car manufacturer. Our mission was to help our client transform their business models and switch from “products based revenue stream” to “services & products” one. Our clients wanted to lead the E-mobility services market.

We were  in charge of designing and implementing an integrated functional architecture that supports the “E-mobility services” business model of the company.

With our cross-functional team we started by making a screenshot and a detailed technical and strategic analysis of the different existent functional architectures; each brand of the group had its own, and our job was also to unify that, to understand their main pain points and strengths locally and globally.

The “AS IS” screenshot allowed us to have a referential based on which we were able to analyze  and understand the gaps between what our company had as processes and functional structure at the current moment and what was preventing us to get to the business goal of “offering more personalized, fully integrated and on-demand mobility services to our customers”.

Based on that, we have defined a set of functional architectures that can be considered.

After we’ve succeeded in convincing the executives and got their green light (executives’ sponsorship, budget and allocated resources) to test 2 of them, we then started the design job.

We have chosen to work with an incremental and iterative approach and we teamed up with GCP Data architects and IoT solutions developers to build cloud integrated solutions for our functional architecture with the level of connectors and data accuracy that we were looking for.

The architecture developed and implemented allowed full control of the car during all its life cycle phases. But it did also offered the possibility to update any control functionality within the car “over the air” meaning remotely, and gave the customer to the possibility to access its contracts, order new services, request a diagnosis, get personalized assistance, or even adapt his consumption based on the state of the traffic and his driving style for example, etc. All of that was accessible through his/her unique “User Account” that we have developed as an “entry portal” to the whole functional connected architecture.

And with our research activities, we were able to take the reflection a bit further by designing not only a functional architecture that allows the integration of more connected services and features, but also a decentralized distributed one that allows to increase the distance while decreasing the latency.

The solution was a blockchain based network architecture which offered the same features as the basic one, but in a more secure, traceable and accessible way.

This model was simulated locally through a private blockchain. Unfortunately, the detailed testing protocol used and the results obtained are strictly confidential to the company, so we won’t be able to share them with you here.
