Paris, 1 October 2015: Sopra Steria will be at the ITS World Congress, to be held October 5-9 at the Bordeaux Exhibition Centre. As a leading player in the digital transformation of the transport sector, Sopra Steria will participate in a roundtable, "Urban Trends Driving ITS changes," will hold a conference, "Digital transformation challenges for ITS," and give demonstrations of its latest innovations.

Sopra Steria supports companies in the transport sector with their specific complex problems, by bringing innovative solutions that are adapted to each activity.

At the 22nd meeting of this annual trade show focused on intelligent transport systems, Sopra Steria will present three innovations that will help improve sustainable mobility:

  • Connected seats: using two sensors, a hub, and a smartphone app, connected seats make it possible to facilitate the management and filling of a train by determining where the empty seats are, facilitating upgrades and ticket verification, and detecting fraud, among other possibilities.
  • Urban Pass: shared platform in SaaS mode that brings together Transport and Services: Transport And Ticketing, Digital Identity, Smart City, Open Data Approach and API.
  • Smart rail: a disruptive step that will open up the central control station and integrate it into your transport information system.
