The two-day event was kindly hosted by the project partner PTV Group.
Transforming Transport is an EU-funded project that represents a strong consortium of 48 leading transport, logistics and information technology stakeholders in Europe.
With a budget of EUR 18.7 million and the participation of 48 organisations from 9 countries, the Horizon 2020 Big Data Value Lighthouse project is working to find a more efficient and more sustainable transport paradigm. It aims to show concrete, measurable and verifiable evidence of data value that can be achieved in mobility and logistics by leveraging big data, i.e. the massive amounts of information that can be analysed using powerful software to reveal trends, patterns and associations.
The consortium is bringing about a major paradigm shift in transport and logistics through 13 pilot projects in 7 pilot domains to showcase big data impact in the below areas:
Big data will be obtained from a variety of data sources in the sector: operational efficiency metrics, customer feedback, arrival and departure times, freight delivery statistics, waiting times at transport hubs, road traffic records, weather data, traveller habits and maintenance downtime records to name just a few. The transformation has already begun.
This domain caters for a number of different activities to incorporate technologies into roads for improving the operation of autonomous cars
Sustainable Connected Vehicles
Vehicles outfitted with special technologies that tap into the internet or wireless LAN and provide additional benefits to the driver.
Proactive Rail Infrastructures
Invest in cutting edge technology enabling major national staffing contracts in record-breaking turnaround times, providing clients with
Ports as Intelligent Logistics Hubs
May involve systems that provide unmanned, autonomous transfer of equipment, baggage, people, information or resources
Smart Airport Turnaround
Involves edge technology for significantly improved operational efficiency and proactive disruption management, less missed ﬂight
Integrated Urban Mobility
Involves a planning concept supporting the integration and balanced development of all modes for reduced traffic congestion and delays
Shared Logistics for E-commerce
Reflect a desire for a modal shift, or a change between modes, and usually encompasses an increase in the proportion of freight trips
