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.
