IXSI - Interface for X-Sharing Information

Year 2015

The increasing demand of mobility, especially individual transport, leads to more pollution, congested cities and shortage of parking. New ways of mobility could mitigate these issues. Unfortunately, such forms of mobility, i.e. carsharing, are usually isolated services, because of the missing integration with other mobility modes. Our aim is to offer a combination of heterogeneous services on a single platform. We assume that such an integration allows optimal offers and higher usability and therefore results in a higher acceptance of travelers. Embedding a vehicle rental system (VRS) into a travel information system (TIS) information-wise is a step forward. For this purpose, we developed an interface for x-sharing information, short IXSI, specialized to connect VRSs with a TIS. IXSI is a XML-based, B2B interface with functions for, e.g., exchanging basic data and price information. The interface enables TISe to perform bookings of both carsharing and bikesharing vehicles on a VRS and therefore, allowing the customer to use both traditional public transport services and rental services seamlessly. Furthermore, we briefly present our IXSI implementations both on TIS and VRS side.
