The Transforming Transport project will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable, and replicable way the transformative effects that Big Data will have on the mobility and logistics market.
To this end, the project validates the technical and economic viability of Big Data to reshape transport processes and services to significantly increase operational efficiency, deliver improved customer experience, and foster new business models.
Transforming Transport will address seven pilot domains of major importance for the mobility and logistics sector in Europe: (1) Smart Highways, (2) Sustainable Vehicle Fleets, (3) Proactive Rail Infrastructures, (4) Ports as Intelligent Logistics Hubs, (5) Efficient Air Transport, (6) Multi-modal Urban Mobility, (7) Dynamic Supply Chains.
The consortium combines knowledge and solutions of major European ICT and Big Data technology providers together with the competence and experience of key European industry players in the mobility and logistics domain
Collaborating Companies or Organisations
Indra is the project coordinator of this reference R&D project. In addition, Indra is highly involved in four pilots in road (Ausol and Via Libre), rail (Cordoba-Málaga) and airport (Athens International Airport):
- Road Pilots: Indra with the support of Cintra and Road Operators will deploy two pilots in Spain and Portugal focusing on Predictive modelling of infrastructure use, heavy goods vehicle flow and road traffic.
- Rail pilot: Indra with the support of Ferrovial Agroman and ADIF will deploy a Rail pilot in the high-speed rai network with the objective of optimising the maintenance activities in high-speed rail networks understanding the variables that have impact on the rail performance.
- Airport pilot: Indra with the support of Athens Airport and Aegean will deploy a pilot at the Athens International Airport with the objective of better knowledge about passenger behaviors for optimizing the airport and airline resources to provide better and personalized services to the passengers, identifying bottlenecks or underused infrastructure and increase non-aviation revenues making better use of airport resources.
