Digitalisation is very high on the political agenda of the Juncker Commission through notably the Digital Single Market strategy. The magnitude of potential brought by digitalisation to transport sector cannot be foreseen, but there is widely spread understanding that the impact will be enormous.
With digitalisation in the transport sector predictability and punctuality can be increased, safety improved as well as multimodality and innovative services can be fostered bringing along more inclusiveness to people.
As it has been widely recognised, data is the new fuel for transport opening up numerous possibilities, however at the same time the digital revolution brings issues that pose challenges or hinder the development and deployment of the possibilities to come. What are the horizontal challenges and opportunities that are common for different transport modes and how to address those, and at the same time pay enough attention to the ones that vary from mode to another?
