The marketplace for traffic data
in Germany

Providers and users of traffic data from public authorities and the private sector find here a neutral platform and defined data and quality standards for publishing and transferring data. The MDM forms a central component of ITS in Europe as an established standard platform with constantly expanding traffic data coverage.

A marketplace full of opportunities

The Mobility Data Marketplace MDM brings together providers, users and refiners of traffic data. As a neutral platform it ensures transparent terms and safe technical standards. This makes it very simple to provide, search for and subscribe to traffic-related data.

When providers and users want to do business with each other they can exchange data via standardised interfaces and proven communications procedures. Both parties benefit from MDM's technical and organisational support, exploiting the full potential of the data: here quality offers meet innovative ideas for use.

Germany's „Single Point of Access"

Intelligent traffic systems are the future. The EU supports their introduction with its action plan: it requires each Member State to provide a national access point for traffic data. In Germany, this key position is taken by the MDM.

The MDM is part of the Federal Government's innovation programme and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. The Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) is responsible for managing the project.

The technical basis for the MTS-K

The market transparency unit for fuels (Website) allows consumers to enquire themselves about the current fuel prices at petrol stations in Germany. Operators of petrol stations report their prices for the most common types of fuel Super E5, E10 and Diesel "in real time" to the MTS-K.

The MTS-K passes the price data to the suppliers of consumer information services. The entire data transfer from the approximately 14,500 German petrol stations via the MTS-K to the service providers is handled by the MDM.
