ALSTOM DIGITAL MOBILITY GLOBAL INNOVATION CENTER LOCATED IN MADRID HAS DEVELOPED AN APPLICATION THAN COMBINES IN A UNIQUE DIGITAL MAP OPERATING INFORMATION ABOUT METRO NETWORKS WITH SOCIAL MEDIA DATA. THE OBJECTIVE: TO PROVIDE USERS WITH REAL TIME INFORMATION TO PLAN THEIR JOURNEYS.
What will mobility be like in the future? Attractive, digital, accessible, clean, efficient, integrated, agile, multimodal…Alstom innovates in order to ensure that the transport systems become more integrated, more efficient for operators and more attractive for passengers. Alstom’s aim is not only to provide rolling stock, services and maintenance but to offer sustainable mobility solutions to a world in profound transformation.
In this regard, Alstom Digital Mobility (ADM) and its Smart Mobility Lab in Spain have developed technologies to respond to both the requirements of passengers (punctuality, connectivity, and integration) and of operators (sustainability, , fluidity, multi-modality, availability and efficiency).
For passengers, Alstom offers, among others, its Optimet OrbanMap solution, a real-time dynamic information system provided to passengers in metro stations.
Designed for a collective use, and located in the station, Optimet OrbanMap, allows visualising at a glance the metro network, its activity, trains position, travel times, service interruptions, and the level of comfort aboard the trains. Optimet OrbanMap also offers a dynamic vision of the city. It indicates places of special interest such as restaurants, museums, sports, etc.
Optimet OrbanMap obtains traffic information from the automatic train supervision system associated to the subway line. City life information is obtained from social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Foursquare, fed by residents and visitors. Data is analysed and selected by a moderator.
