Digitalisation has profoundly changed transport needs and patterns
A sustainable, accessible transport system is essential for connecting communities efficiently and appealingly. Digitalisation, in the form of sensor technology and management of large amounts of complex data, can be used to optimise the design of railway and tramway systems from an emissions perspective. Digital technologies can also meet the demands of urbanisation for efficient, sustainable transport solutions by improving traffic flows and maintenance planning.
