Transforming Transport, the best European big data project

Indra leads the macro-project Transforming Transport that includes the work of 49 partners from nine european countries

Transforming Transport, led by Indra has been awarded the prize for “best success story” among the 42 projects that promote digital transformation based on data in Europe, developed within the framework of the Big Data Value PPP, the public-private entity that directs the RDI strategy in big data to boost European leadership in this field.

This macro-project, in which Indra coordinated the work of 49 partners from nine European countries, has achieved significant results that will mark a turning point in the world of mobility, transport and logistics.

By facilitating the automated support of decision making, from big data and artificial intelligence, the solutions allow to operation and maintenance to be optimized; increase efficiency and productivity; improve the passenger experience; reduce energy consumption and polluting emissions; as well as facilitating the creation of new business models based on data.

Improvements of up to 60% in the operational efficiency of transport and up to 50% in asset management are the main results obtained in the 13 pilots conducted in roads, ports, airports, railways and cities across Europe.

Thanks to predictive maintenance, it has been possible to reduce the maintenance costs of railway infrastructures by 34%, also minimizing service interruptions and improving passenger safety. The monthly number of interventions in maintenance was reduced by 15% and the monthly polluting emissions caused by rail was reduced by between 15% and 25%.
