The aim of the TransformingTransport project was to demonstrate in a realistic, measurable and replicable way the transformative effects that Big Data have to the mobility and logistics market. To this end, TransformingTransport validated the technical and economic viability of Big Data to reshape transport processes and services in order to significantly increase operational efficiency, deliver improved customer experience and foster new business models.
TransformingTransport addressed seven pilot domains of major importance for the mobility and logistics sector in Europe: (1) Smart Highways, (2) Sustainable Vehicle Fleets, (3) Proactive Rail Infrastructures, (4) Ports as Intelligent Logistics Hubs, (5) Efficient Air Transport, (6) Multi-modal Urban Mobility, (7) Dynamic Supply Chains. The TransformingTransport consortium combines knowledge and solutions of major European ICT and Big Data technology providers together with the competence and experience of key European industry players in the mobility and logistics domain.
