Alstom to Showcase Digital Mobility Solutions at SmartCity Expo World Congress

The SmartCity Expo World Congress, which will take place in Barcelona, Spain, on 13–15 November, is a rail show that will focus on five key areas: digital transformation, urban environment, mobility, governance and finance, and inclusive and sharing cities.

In today’s world mobility giants such as Alstom must also be digital solutions providers. As such Alstom will be exhibiting at the SmartCity Expo World Congress, now in its eighth year. One of the key challenges to be addressed at the show will be how to move to a form of mobility that is smarter and more sustainable.

Alstom will feature its latest digital solutions technologies, from augmented reality, 5G connectivity, big data, IoT, video analytics and virtual reality, all of which are changing urban mobility. The technologies developed will benefit both passengers, by improving their experience, and operators, by improving efficiency and availability.
