Smart innovations, smarter mobility
I- Smarter mobility for passengers
Getting real time information to plan your journey
Optimet OrbanMap, an intelligent metro map
To make transport in the metro faster, more comfortable, and more
pleasant, Alstom launches Optimet OrbanMap, a real-time dynamic
information for metro networks. Designed for a collective use, and
located in the station, Optimet OrbanMap, developed by metrolab,
allows visualising at a glance the metro network, its activity, trains
position, travel times, service interruptions, and the level of comfort
aboard the trains. Optimet OrbanMap also offers a dynamic vision
of the city. It indicates places of special interest such as restaurants,
museums, sports, etc.
Optimet OrbanMap obtains traffic information from the automatic train supervision system
associated to the subway line. City life information is obtained from social media platforms such as
Instagram, Twitter and Foursquare, fed by residents and visitors. Data is analysed and selected by a
Decide your position on the platform
Optimet real-time train occupancy
On the metro platform, passengers are often spread out unequally
and often concentrate at each end of it not knowing where to stand
to board the metro efficiently. In peak times, this often generates
congestion around the doors and makes passengers exchange
difficult. To address this issue, Alstom launches Optimet real-time
train occupancy, a solution developed by Metrolab that shows the
level of occupancy per car through a colour LED strip (red, orange or
green) above the screen doors which stretches all along the
platform, as well as on monitors in the station passage ways and/or elevators.
Optimet real-time train occupancy combines a counting system and an information display system.
The counting system uses sensors mounted on the platform screen doors. It interfaces with Optimet
sensors and rolling stock load indications to determine the load of each vehicle. The data collected
by the sensors is processed by an algorithm to recalculate the metro occupancy levels. The
algorithm also takes into account the specific characteristics of the train (dimensions, seating
arrangement, etc.), in order to provide the most accurate information. Once the doors close, this
data is processed, interpreted and sent to the next station to be displayed. Thus, before the train
arrives, commuters know where to stand on the platform in order to board the train in areas less
Having solutions for the first and last mile
As passengers are requiring more and more flexibility and
seamless transport from door to door, Alstom has invested
€14 million in EasyMile, an innovative start-up company
which manufactures an electric autonomous shuttle called
‘EZ10’ that guarantees the first and last mile
transportation. This enables Alstom to expand its knowledge
into the driverless technologies, to reinforce its portfolio and
enlarge its range of solutions.
EZ10 by EasyMile is defined as an electric collective shuttle that can accommodate up to 12
passengers. The vehicle is designed to be integrated in an Automated Road Transport Systems
(ARTS), dedicated to the public transportation application, in private areas or cities. EZ10 is
designed to operate in both directions in a similar manner, without having to do a U-turn. To this
aim, the front and rear light are identical. Depending on the direction where the vehicle is driving,
the lights will automatically be re-configured to stay consistent with the vehicle’s movement.
Since April 2015, EZ10 has been deployed in more than 50 sites in 14 countries in Asia, North-
America, Middle-East and Europe. In France, it is now being tested in Paris since September 2016.
New experiences of mobility
Alstom together with its subsidiary NTL
, has launched
a new experience of mobility to complete its emission-
free, 100% electric range of solutions: Aptis.
Aptis‘ design is inspired by the one of a tram. It
incorporates low-floor accessibility and 360° views.
With batteries and power systems located on the top
and the wheels situated at both ends with no
overhangs, Aptis offers passengers a never-seen before full low floor. Aptis can carry up to 95
passengers on board. It features two or three large double doors which enable easy on-and-off
passenger flows and smooth access for wheelchairs and strollers.
Combined with panoramic windows at both ends, Aptis offer 20% more windows surface for the
comfort of the passengers. Moreover, it has low noise levels.
With four steerable wheels versus two for a bus, Aptis occupies 25% less surface area in curves,
providing perfect integration into the city. At bus stops, this minimises the space needed to park
while offering gains in available space for other vehicles.
shares held by Alstom ( 51%) BPI France (49%)
Aptis can be charged in two different ways. The first mode involves bringing enough energy on
board to have sufficient autonomy for a full day of operation, then recharging the batteries in the
depot overnight using a standard plug (it takes around 6 hours to fully recharge the batteries). The
other solution may be either Alstom’s SRS solution or an inverted pantograph, which takes around
5 minutes to recharge, equivalent to a quick drivers’ break.
Stay connected all through the journey
Nomad Digital solutions
With a large range of smart devises (laptops, tablets, smartphones, smart watches, etc.) and
continuous evolution of the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), connectivity while
traveling is a must for passengers. In is strategy to enhance passenger experience and accelerate
digitalisation of its offering, Alstom acquired Nomad Digital, a world leading provider of passenger
and fleet connectivity solutions for the railway industry.
Nomad offer includes Wi-Fi connection solutions as well as entertainment platforms (video, music,
and playback) or connected on-board service, for example, ordering its coffee from its seat.
In addition, Nomad Digital also provides tele maintenance solutions, including Remote Online
Condition Monitoring, Reliability Centred Maintenance, Driver Assist and Power Train products.
II- Smart mobility for operators
Better manage multimodal operations
Alstom launches Mastria, a multimodal supervision solution, which, through planned predictive and
automated data analysis is able to generate quick and reliable reports, allowing operators to rapidly
offer alternative mobility solutions to commuters.
Mastria combines Alstom’s 30-years of experience in the implementation of traffic management
systems for urban and mainline customers worldwide with the results of the SystemX technological
Mastria optimises traffic fluidity for all means of transportation (buses, trams, metros, taxis…). The
information on the best routes at any given time is available for transport authorities to dispatch to
passengers. This optimises the duration of the trip thanks to an orchestration of the modes and
flows in the transport system. In case of technical failures, other incidents or special events such as
sports matches, bad weather, and public demonstrations, Mastria is able to anticipate the impact
that the incident will have on the network and ensures that various operators collaborate in order to
adapt the transport service accordingly and to offer alternative itineraries for passengers to reach
their final destinations.
Mastria’s benefits go beyond the optimisation of the traffic and minimisation of commuting time. It
also enables an increase in transport capacity and reduces the energy needed to operate the
Mastria is based on four main standard functions which are: multimodal supervision, traffic
management, operations orchestration and predictive analytics. These functions are highly
configurable and can be combined together according to operators’ needs and to the transport
network environment. It communicates over secure network connections with external control and
information systems. It is flexible and designed to be scalable as to adapt to different transport
networks, from local transport nodes to larger ones. It can be expanded to accommodate the
inclusion of new lines and additional transportation means.
More punctuality and flexibility through autonomous solutions
Driving assistance increases capacity and quality of the service,
ensuring punctuality, accurate stops and energy saved through a
smoother drive. For metro, Automatic Train Operation (ATO) is
the state of the art technology. Alstom has equipped more than 50
lines with ATO in cities like Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai
(China), Lausanne (Switzerland), or Panama, and is equipping 40
others making the group a leader. Alstom is also investing in
equipping mainline trains with driving assistance.
Alstom is the world leader in driverless metro and the company has implemented some of the first
driverless metros in the world (Lille Metro in the 80’s and first driverless heavy metro in Singapore).
Driverless rolling stock ensures flexible operation and reduces cost related to operations. Alstom is
now investing in new autonomous drive systems to enhance its portfolio of services as illustrated by
the recent investment in EasyMile and the tests realised on a tram in a RATP depot in the suburb of
Paris (Vitry-Sur-Seine). Equipped with virtual manipulator, localisation, anti-collision Lidar, and
sensors, the tram is for the first time in the world able to park in the depot in full autonomy.
Predictive maintenance through advanced data science
Alstom has launched HealthHub a couple of years ago, a solution that collects data from rolling
stock, infrastructure and signalling systems and allows predictive maintenance across all assets.
The solution enables to shift from traditional mileage-based maintenance towards condition-based
and predictive maintenance. To achieve this, the algorithms developed combine advanced data
analysis with the technical system experience from design and operation.
The solution provides dashboards and reports that turn data into valuable information for
maintenance and operation activities. It can be cloud-based, or provided as part of the on-premises
architecture according to specific customer constraints. Combined with new maintenance
strategies, e.g. using dynamic maintenance plans, this approach optimises availability, reliability
Remote condition monitoring started in 2006 with TrainTracer, enabling smarter data-driven
decisions. It has been deployed as of 2014 for mainline operations such as for Virgin high speed
Pendolino trains in the UK, NTV AGV high speed trains in Italy or PKP high speed Pendolino trains
in Poland, to name a few examples. More recently, Alstom’s HealthHub solution is also deployed in
urban transport such as the tramway systems in Reims and Nice.
