Project description

Development of an intelligent & data-centric system for multimodal transport around a network of sensors providing real-time data regarding the status of vehicles, goods & infrastructures.

The project includes: (a) development of an intelligent network of sensors on vehicles, transport infrastructure and goods; (b) development of cloud infrastructures for the management and dissemination of data; (c) establishment of storage areas for data and applications aiming at the development and aggregation of data sets and applications that are based on the primary transport data collected through the network of sensors.

Economic rationale / Business Model

The project aims to provide a sustainable infrastructure for the development of smart and data-centric applications for multi-modal transport modes. This infrastructure will allow the monitoring of transportation and transport routes, as well as of the combination of different transportation modes, will optimize the quality of collected data through the provision of value added services, will enhance the traceability and tracking of vehicles and the monitoring of movement of goods, thus contributing to a more efficient and effective management of transportations.
Moreover, the project aims to improve the quality and consistency of services provided to passengers, thus contributing to the increase of traffic demand. The project implementation will provide substantial benefits in management and monitoring of transportation, estimated at more than €50m per year in operational cost savings.
The proposed investment project demonstrates synergies with Public Sector Reform Projects related to electronic governance of the Ministry of Infrastructure Transportation and Networks.
