Big Data may reshape transport processes and services to significantly increase operational efficiency, deliver improved customer experience, and foster new business models. Current forecasts expect that a 10% efficiency improvement may lead to EU cost savings of 100 billion Euros. Beginning in January 2017, the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme will fund the lighthouse project TransformingTransport (Big Data Value in Mobility and Logistics), which involves 47 partners, granting 14.6 Million Euros for 2.5 years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, plays an integral role within the project and will be granted individual funding worth 760,000 Euros. The TransformingTransport project will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable, and replicable way the transformative effects that Big Data will have to the mobility and logistics market. TransformingTransport will address seven pilot domains of major importance for the mobility and logistics sector.
