- Bombardier showcases its strategy and vision for leading the transition into the next generation of sustainable urban transport - Digitalization and virtual reality to take center stage at global transport exhibition Note to editors: To view the photos associated with this press release, please visit the following links: Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation will be one of the main exhibitors at this year's Global Public Transport Summit, taking place in Montreal from May 15-17. The summit, organized by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), will focus on the rapid and significant transition that the urban mobility industry is currently undergoing. Laurent Troger, President, Bombardier Transportation, said, "Bombardier has the industry's broadest product portfolio and hundreds of ongoing projects in over 200 cities across the globe. This gives us the leverage and scale we need to develop customised mobility and connectivity solutions while steering the mobility transition as it takes on an ever increasing digital character. We will continue to lead the way ahead to make sustainable transportation a reality for all". Against this digital backdrop, Bombardier Transportation's presence at UITP will be centred on an immersive virtual reality presentation that showcases how its holistic approach and portfolio of transportation systems are meeting the global challenge of growing urbanization. Immersed in a virtual 3-D city, visitors can experience various Bombardier technologies seamlessly integrated into the urban transport ecosystem, each equipped with additional features to enhance capacity, safety and service. This includes the BOMBARDIER MOVIA Maxx metro platform, the BOMBARDIER FLEXITY 2 light rail system, an elevated BOMBARDIER INNOVIA Monorail 300 system or the BOMBARDIER OPTIFLO solution. High capacity is the MOVIA Maxx metro's key strength and when combined with the proven BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 communications-based train control system, operators can choose from the full range of modes; with driver to fully automated and driverless. As a metro project's affordability is a vital precondition to its success, the MOVIA Maxx metro platform is designed to deliver great value for money in terms of passenger capacity, energy consumption, reliability and availability. Visitors can also see the FLEXITY 2 light rail system equipped with the Obstacle Detection Assistance System (ODAS), a major breakthrough in tram safety. This safety-enhancing technology uses a very precise near field monitoring system with stereo camera technology to scan the area ahead. The ODAS automatically detects objects on or moving near to the tram track and instantaneously evaluates any potential risk before responding accordingly. Another key highlight at the exhibition will be the BOMBARDIER OPTIFLO solution, an innovative maintenance and signalling technology that improves rail assets' maintenance costs and availability by providing a full range of aftermarket services including help desk and technical support as well as obsolescence, asset, and configuration management. At the UITP event, a fully interactive demo will focus on the EBI Maintenance and Diagnostics Centre Tool and will include live site data from New Jersey signalling systems and products collected from one of Bombardier's remote sensor units. Visit us at the UITP exhibition, stand no. 2J100, Level 2. Bombardier Transportation is a global leader in rail technology and offers the broadest portfolio in the industry.

« Students of Eindhoven University of Technology are presenting bio-composite car | Main | FEV study finds optimizing engine for renewable diesel use reduces fuel consumption and emissions » At the Global Public Transport Summit (GPTS) in Montreal/Canada, the congress of the International Association of Public Transport, UITP, Mercedes-Benz again confirmed that battery-electric versions of its Citro bus (earlier post) would enter series production next year. prototypes are already undergoing testing on the roads. The company said that the electrically powered Citaro will open up a new chapter in electric mobility, because Mercedes-Benz is not looking at the city bus in isolation, but as an integral part of a highly efficient transport system. Daimler Buses therefore now offers a comprehensive consultancy service for transport operators, aimed at supporting them in the development of reliable e-mobility concepts viable for fleet use. To help customers achieve the right balance between the conflicting demands of range, charging infrastructure, payload and costs, experts from the recently established Mobility Solutions unit of Daimler Buses provide advice on their specific questions about e-mobility. The systematic approach taken by this e-mobility consulting team, supported by intelligent data systems, ensures that each vehicle is optimally configured for the purposes intended and for the topography of a city or region where the bus will be used. As part of the preparation for the efficient and reliable introduction of the forthcoming fully electrically powered Citaro, the experts undertake a detailed consultancy process that looks not just at the vehicle itself, but also at the charging infrastructure, energy supply, operating plans and IT requirements in the bus depots, as well as at suitable service concepts. The result is an individual plan with defined milestones that will allow the implementation of electric mobility in daily fleet operations in a way that minimises the operational as well as the economic risks. For the multifaceted ecosystem that the introduction of the electric city bus necessitates, Daimler Buses is able to take advantage of the high level of expertise available within the Daimler Group in relation to such factors as charging infrastructure and stationary energy storage. For operators of urban bus services in particular, storage units of this nature can be an important way of meeting the high energy requirements of their vehicles as economically as possible. In early March, Daimler also announced that it would be investing in US charging station provider ChargePoint. With more than 33,000 charging spots, ChargePoint is the market leader in this area in the US and has significant expertise in relation to both hardware and software, from which Daimler Buses and its customers will also be able to benefit.

Automated ticketing and mobility surveys by capturing multi-modal travel behaviour How to make public transport even more comfortable for passengers? Can ticketing be simplified? How to capture the actual mobility behavior? Public transport needs to be as efficient and comfortable as possible in order to be attractive for passengers and cost-effective for public transport operators. AIT addresses these challenges with its technology Travel Mode Identification (TMI), which is an innovative software solution automatically identifying travel modes of people carrying a smartphone. The technology can easily be integrated in existing smartphone-apps and automatically classifies eight different travel modes, no user intervention is required. Possible applications are e.g. simple and reliable mobility surveys and novel solutions for automated ticketing. Mobility Surveys Mobility surveys use to be a tremendous effort regarding both, cost and time. So far reams of questionnaires either in writing or by telephone had to be answered and analyzed. Not with TMI: The technology allows collecting data simply via smartphone at lower cost, in less time and higher quality. For this specific application AIT has launched the service "AIT Smart Survey" that has already been applied in several surveys e.g. in Vienna. Automated Ticketing TMI can also be used for integrated mobile ticketing apps for public transport: The technology detects whenever a smartphone user travels on public transport; detailed route information and fees can be calculated accordingly. This offers a maximum level of comfort to the passenger, who does not need to buy any ticket or press any button - it just works automatically. The public transport operator benefits from the fact, that no additional infrastructure - e.g. Bluetooth or Wifi networks - is required, which saves a lot of cost. Next show up UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Montréal/Canada 15 - 17 May 2017 AIT booth: # 2D100 https://uitpsummit.org/exhibitors/ait-austrian-institute-of-technology-gmbh/ About AIT The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is Austria's largest non-university research institute.
