UITP Metropolitan Railways Assembly on the occasion of Metro de Madrid’s centenary


At the event, organised as a special tribute to the Madrid underground on its centenary, the 60 main underground systems in the world analysed the progress in digitalisation, artificial intelligence and enhanced mobility.

A major part of the debate focused on the analysis of the challenges and the current strategy towards the city of the future. In addition, there were sessions on the benefits of the underground, the digital metro and work presentations from the underground technical sub-committees of the UITP, as well as a technical visit organised by Metro de Madrid.

Metro de Madrid outlined its main projects to develop the so-called ‘metro of the future’, which is the focus of a modernisation programme with two outstanding digital milestones: first, the implementation of the Command Post and the Operations Centre for Maintenance and Monitoring of Facilities and Telecommunications, together with the ATO system; and second, the development of the Station 4.0, the RailNet communications system and better customer information.
