In Tampere, the activities related to the new tramway has given birth to the SmartRail ecosystem led by tram manufacturer Škoda Transtech. Its work, together with Tampere Tramway ltd. (Tampereen Raitiotie Oy), City of Tampere and numerous companies and research groups, aims at user centric mobility services, sustainable mobility and new business opportunities in the context where the new Tampere tramway lies. This document presents briefly the aforementioned ecosystem consisting of the stakeholders involved in the development of the Tampere tramway, trams and their operation, public transportation as well as services to the citizens in the context of public transportation. The document is focused on the Living Lab concept adapted to support both the participative development of the city services related to the new tramway and to the public transportation as a whole according to the ecosystem goals. Furthermore, selected use cases related to the ecosystem targets as well as living lab operation are analysed in order to deduce requirements for the technical system required to support the R&D&I work in the ecosystem. Document elaborates the use cases analysed to the specification of the Urban Mobility Data Space (UMDS) along with its overall system architecture. The specified technical environment serves at the same time as a part of the SmartRail Living Lab (Living Lab ICT) and more generally as a mobility research data environment serving also other R&D&I activities. In addition, the document presents first round of proof-of-concept implementation of the systems and some remarks.
