Alstom will present at the SmartCity Expo World Congress, to be held in Barcelona from the 13 to the 15 November, its breakthrough technologies to address the evolving mobility needs of both operators and passengers. Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), the leading international event for cities, will host on 2018 its eighth edition. Under the theme Cities To Live In, it will gather over 700 cities, 700 exhibitors and 400 speakers that will address, among others, the challenges to boost the transaction to a smarter and more sustainable mobility.
As a provider of Mobility solutions in the digitalization era, Alstom will showcase its latest developments in this field. Technologies such as augmented reality, 5G connectivity, Big Data, IoT, video analytics, or virtual reality are redefining the present and the future of mobility in our cities.
In this regard, Alstom Digital Mobility (ADM) including the Smart Mobility Lab in Spain have developed technologies to respond to both the requirements of passengers (passenger experience) and of operators (sustainability, fluidity, multi-modality, availability and efficiency).
For passengers, Alstom presents its Optimet OrbanMap solution, a real-time dynamic information system provided to passengers in metro stations. Optimet OrbanMap allows visualisation at a glance of the metro network, its activity, trains position, travel times, service interruptions, and the level of comfort aboard the trains.
For operators and Transport Authorities, Alstom has developed Mastria, the first multimodal supervision solution. Thanks to Mastria, all the actors of mobility in a given city are linked: bus, tram and metro networks but also taxi, shared cars and bikes, police, etc. The objective is to maximise fluidity between all the means of transportation in a city and to orchestrate passenger routes. Thanks to the application of advance data analytics, it can also predict and anticipate possible incidents, in order to improve mobility management within the city.
Together with intermodality, current great challenge for transport authorities is safety. Alstom has therefore developed Iconis Security, an integrated solution to manage security operations, passenger information and communications within the control centre, providing efficient, responsive and seamless supervision of both the onboard and wayside installations. Iconis Security is capable of detecting and managing all types of incidents that may affect the safety for passengers, staff and infrastructures, such as abandoned objects, intrusions on the track, overcrowding on platforms and even video-tracking in real time, among others. With the aim to ease real-time and remote management, Alstom has developed a virtual control room that uses HoloLens[i] augmented reality.
