SAE is the former Society of Automotive Engineers, and has been a leader in standard setting for many years. There is clearly a need for standards around data for shared bike and scooter services, for instance. The main cooperators are Miami-Dade County, Jump, Spin, and Populus (a data platform).
A similar effort by Los Angeles called the Mobility Data Specification (MDS) led to major complaints from Uber and Lyft, the ride-hailing service operators. They don’t want to be bound by the rules. Other cities have been following the MDS as well.
Perhaps such a consortium effort could help resolve these problems. I’m surprised there isn’t communication between the Los Angeles group and the SAE.
