Mobility & Transportation

Driving the Global Economy with a Unique Lifecycle of Demands

Mobility & Transportation is akin to a circulatory system for the global economy, connecting people and goods to others around the world. Digital twins are valuable for maximizing efficiency and minimizing the use of resources. They are benefiting organizations challenged by the constant redefining of renewable energy and the increasing requirements of Environment, Society, and Governance (ESG) regulations.

While digital twins are mostly developed from an operational performance perspective and for a specific domain or vertical, M&T mandates a unique connected spectrum of lifecycle demands fundamental to driving the world economy. The Working Group is focusing on increasing visibility into the overall digital twin ecosystem.

The group is looking at:

  • Exploring mobility and transportation digital twin use cases and developing implementation scenarios for digital twins.
  • Enabling technologies and related business model innovations for transport hubs (airport, seaport/maritime, and inland ports), railroad and trucking distribution centers, and intelligent infrastructure corridors (roads, highways, bridges, airways, and waterways).
  • Defining applications of digital twins across the spectrum.
  • Investigating areas for digital twin pilots and testbeds that address the most impactful challenges, and collaborating on Value Innovation Programs.

Our Key Priorities


  • Expand the ecosystem through use cases, success stories, and position papers.
  • Define appropriate ontology for semantics and reference implementations.
  • Provide opinions, perspectives, and best practices guidance for regulations and policies.

Define and identify digital twin applications

  • Determine applicability of current and evolving technologies and unification strategies.
  • Elicit and collate common and industry-specific applications.
  • Develop enabling technologies and related business model innovations.

Identify fundamental implementation scenarios

  • Analyze scenarios from the perspective of cross-domain interoperability.
  • Incorporate the knowledge base of the consortium’s working groups and liaisons to create an “as a service” experience.
  • Identify gaps in standards and establish standards requirements.
