The overarching objective of Barcelona’s implementation project is to execute two sets of iterative use
cases, serving as pilots for the deployEMDS data space infrastructure, with the aim of enhancing the regional
mobility strategy. 

The first use case focuses on establishing a data space designed to manage diverse bus tracking and
monitoring data. This data management occurs across a regional, multi-operator SAEi platform provided
by the local public transport authority (PTA), designed to improve the digitalisation and operational efficiency
of public transport operators while maintaining their autonomous fleet management.

The second use case focuses on traffic analysis and includes external variables. The use case considers
the effect of weather conditions on traffic patterns, the impact of traffic on air quality, as well as the
development of a traffic prediction model and incident detection model.

Selected KPIs

• Data sets of 3 focus areas

• 6 multimodal and traffic service innovations

• 2 new innovations in sustainable mobility management


Barcelona will be implementing two sets of iterative use cases that will pilot deployEMDS data space infrastructure to advance the regional mobility strategy.

Use Case 1

Multi-operator bus fleet data governance platform, scale-up to Demand-Responsive Transit (DRT) and interaction with other modes

Creating a data space to manage diverse bus tracking and monitoring data across a regional, multi-operator platform provided by local PTA (ATM).

Use Case 2

Forecasting system to optimise traffic, based on vehicle flow and air quality

Combining several data sources and models to generate value from traffic data through cross-analysis and prediction.
