The main topic of the project LOMS (Local Mobile Services) is to look into methods and tools for development, deployment and use of location-based mobile services.

LOMS is an ITEA project. Participating partners come from Belgium, Germany, and Spain. D-LOMS is the german part of LOMS and is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).


The goal of the project LOMS is to define and develop an open service architecture through which new innovative local mobile services can easily be created, deployed, and consumed by mobile users. The aim is to lower the threshold for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and non-professional users to set up their own mobile services and allow charging from the content or service provisioning in business-to-consumer (B2C) or business-to-business (B2B) scenarios.


The major project outcome includes the definition, creation, and the development of business models, user scenarios, and a serviceware with associated support functions and tools for the provisioning of mobile content in local services, such as in shops, tourism locations, airports, car parks, and trains. A number of new innovative mobile applications will be created in the project to demonstrate the feasibility of the developed platform. Various enabling services and service building blocks will be promoted to a broad audience, allowing for the development of smarter, context-aware, and personalised mobile services.
