Mastria: Smart Management for multimodal operations


Alstom Digital Mobility global innovation center located in madrid has developed a pioneering technology to manage multimodal operations from a single management center.

Alstom Digital Mobility global innovation center located in Madrid has developed Mastria, a multimodal supervision solution, which, through planned predictive and automated data analysis is able to generate quick and reliable reports, allowing operators to rapidly offer alternative mobility solutions to commuters.

Mastria optimizes traffic fluidity for all means of transportation (buses, trams, metros, taxis…). The information on the best routes at any given time is available for transport authorities to dispatch to passengers. This optimizes the duration of the trip thanks to an orchestration of the modes and flows in the transport system. In case of technical failures, other incidents or special events such as sports matches, bad weather, and public demonstrations, Mastria is able to anticipate the impact that the incident will have on the network and ensures that various operators collaborate in order to adapt the transport service accordingly and to offer alternative itineraries for passengers to reach their final destinations.

Mastria’s benefits go beyond the optimization of the traffic and minimization of commuting time. It also enables an increase in transport capacity and reduces the energy needed to operate the mobility system.

Mastria is based on four main standard functions which are: multimodal supervision, traffic management, operations orchestration and predictive analytics. These functions are highly configurable and can be combined together according to operators’ needs and to the transport network environment. It communicates over secure network connections with external control and information systems.  It is flexible and designed to be scalable as to adapt to different transport networks, from local transport nodes to larger ones.  It can be expanded to accommodate the inclusion of new lines and additional transportation means.
