Issues and challenges
RATP wants to harness digital technology to expand its mobility offering. The objective: build better large networks, such as inter-city train and subway networks, using the precise knowledge of passenger flows, and design innovative custom services.
Mathieu Dunant, Head of Innovation, RATP Group
As part of a collaborative innovation approach, RATP and Orange Business Services have partnered to use digital technology to expand RATP's mobility offering by developing:
- Driver-less vehicles in which connectivity, underpinned by 5G analyses in particular, has an essential role in communicating with infrastructures
- A solution that includes Flux Vision, a service that respects everyone’s privacy while precisely identifying the traveling habits of passengers in order to build better networks
- A hypervisor that creates data visualizations of spaces, such as subway networks, and enable operators to view people flows in three dimensions
An approach driven by digital innovation
RATP Group and Orange Business Services have teamed up to innovate the digital aspects of projects, such as autonomous vehicles and analyses of passenger flows, using Flux Vision. The fruits of their labors include personalized services for passengers and the ability to know users’ mobility needs in real time.
A better understanding of current mobility challenges
RATP's approach demonstrates a real determination to meet current mobility challenges (car sharing, driver-less cars, etc.). Environmental concerns and gridlocked roads are driving real changes. The aim is to make traveling smoother and develop new, tailored modes of transport.
An innovative brand
By teaming up with Orange to develop innovative services tailored to passengers’ uses and habits, RATP is strengthening and enhancing its brand image. Digital technology is an opportunity to change customer relations for the better.
