The Internet of Things in public transport

  • Global
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Blockchain
  • Communication
  • Customer service excellence

With our changing habits, people are moving faster because of busy schedules and an increasingly fast-paced lifestyle. As a consequence, this requires smarter ways of managing our lives and maximising our time. By 2025, forecasts suggest that there will be more than 75 billiion devices connected to the internet. The notion of connecting with one another
and the necessity for quick information is not a trend that is going to slow down.

How will this impact the transportation world? Public transport is expected to follow this trend with the aim of improving the quality of service and reducing delays for passengers. ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) is dramatically accelerating the pace of innovation in the local transportation
industry and providing real solutions.

This Knowledge Brief will explain the concept, offer some interesting case studies and provide an outlook for the future.
