One of the first projects to use the European GAIA-X distributed cloud technology is performing its first live demonstration.

The GAIA-X moveID project is led by Bosch and aims to combine decentralized communications and data technologies and Self-Sovereign Identities (SSIs) with integrated payment capabilities for automotive applications.

The project is part of the Gaia-X 4 Future Mobility programme and will demonstrate an app for peer-to-peer parking and charging as a first glimpse of its vision of a decentralized mobility service ecosystem. This can also be extended to smart grid and even smart city applications.

The demonstration involving Tesla and Jaguar electric vehicles (EVs) to show how autonomous transactions between connected devices cut costs and add new revenue streams while still protecting the privacy of users.

As the lead for the €28m project, Bosch is providing an electric Jaguar powered by a full suite of specialized hardware enabling V2X communications and providing the foundation for automotive grade self-sovereign identity. 

“At moveID, we believe that the best way to imagine the future is to experience it first-hand,” says Peter Busch, moveID Project Lead and Product Owner for Distributed Ledger Technologies (Mobility) at Robert Bosch GmbH. “The demonstration at IAA is meant to do just that, putting the first fruits of our work on public display in a testimony to the feasibility of its underlying vision.”

Automotive supplier Denso is also providing organizational and technical support to the initiative. It is also sponsoring the Alfen Eve Double Pro-line charging station, which will be used in the live demonstration.

“We are excited to showcase this live demo to the wider industry as we see great potential in using privacy-first tech to power the future of mobility. Data is crucial for R&D efforts in the automotive space, but data must be sourced in a secure and compliant way” says Christian Prehofer, Director at DENSO Automotive Germany.

Trusted identification of parties is a key challenge to tackle on the journey to unlock the full business potential of connected vehicles, particularly for Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication. The digital mobility infrastructure built by moveID project partners uses the blockchain based SSIs as a vendor-neutral digital backbone for autonomous transactions between vehicles and connected infrastructure.

The live demo will allow finding, reserving, and using a parking lot and an EV charging point that are being offered in a peer-to-peer fashion, for example by companies allowing access to their parking lots. The open source decentralization tools enable full privacy as the vehicles use their own digital wallets to cover the parking and charging fees. 

Datarella will provide its public MOBIX app as the joint user interface and ‘remote control’ for all moveID privacy-preserving functionality. It will leverage’s AI agents to enable smart interoperability of all underlying technologies.

“Leveraging’s AI agents to connect different technologies and seeing the distilled result of the agent’s work in our MOBIX app is the living proof of the power of the moveID tech stack,” says Datarella CEO Michael Reuter.

deltaDAO is providing the ability to securely share usage and analytics data and make it visible and accessible in the Gaia-X 4 Future Mobility moveID public decentralized data marketplace powered by Ocean Protocol. Selling anonymized locally-stored data on the Ocean marketplace enables businesses to do away with data silos and unlock an additional GDPR-compliant revenue stream.

“While data is growing evermore important in the age of AI, the current dominant approach to its harvesting and unilateral exploitation is incompatible with the idea of ownership and privacy. moveID changes this equation, enabling all stakeholders to own their data and use it how they see fit without compromising their privacy,” says Kai Meinke, Co-Founder & Business Lead at deltaDAO AG and Lead of the Gaia-X Open-Source Software Community. 

The open source tools from Ocean Protocol support decentralized data-sharing and secure access to data, allowing businesses and individuals in the moveID data ecosystem to safely exchange and monetize data and data-based services with one another as well as with stakeholders in other relevant data spaces while maintaining control over their data.

“Secure data processing is critical to the future of mobility,” says Sheridan Johns, Ocean Protocol Head of Ecosystem & Collaboration. “In the case of the moveID IAA demonstrator, key technical features of Ocean Protocol are used to build secure interoperable data ecosystems for offering innovative mobility services such as vehicle parking, vehicle charging and more.” 

Fetch.aiis providing its autonomous AI agent framework for the live demo. “The AI agent framework is a powerful and versatile tool with a lot of potential for use in anything involving smart infrastructure and enabling new economic opportunities. We are very excited to see AI agents streamline the charging and parking experience for IAA visitors.” says Maria Minaricova, Director of Business Development at 

The Saarland University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes, htw saar)is sponsoring the hardware for the live demo, including first and foremost one of the two electric vehicles, a Tesla Model X, that the visitors will be able to take for a test drive as part of the display, as well as a special hardware set which enables V2X communication and SSI.

“Europe is leading the way on data privacy, and moveID has the potential to extend this lead into the connected infrastructure space by putting self-sovereign data and identities at its foundation. We are proud to be enabling this on the technical level with Information Communication Technology,” says Niclas Wolniak, Research Manager at htw saar.

peaq is providing self-sovereign IDs for the connected devices in the demonstration, as well as a decentralized application for peer-to-peer vehicle charging. This dApp will be integrated with the MOBIX app by Datarella. peaq will also provide connectivity with’s AI agents via its integration. 

While the demonstration focuses on the mobility industry, the business model behind it can be implemented in a wide array of industries, such as public-to-private power grid interplay and smart supply chain management. The moveID project invites all stakeholders in the EV charging ecosystem to participate and make their individual charging solution part of the overall charging network.;
