Assets & digitalization

Transit is becoming increasingly digitalized, from signalling systems such as PTC or CBTC to using mathematical modelling techniques such as AI or machine learning to predict when assets will need repairing. Transitioning to digital processes is vital for transit to keep up with the rate of technological change and development; it is essential for transit to ensure its operations are as streamlined, reliable, and efficient as possible. This stream will look at how data can be leveraged in maintenance processes and how advanced signalling and telecommunications networks are impacting the transit industry.
