Exponential growth in population and goods consumption is placing new demands on mobility and infrastructure networks. Cities and their surrounding rural areas must remain accessible without compromising residents’ quality of life, while achieving environmental sustainability. One of the sleeping giants with massive potential for disruption within this field is the Digital Twin. It enables optioneering and re-engineering of assets and processes, working with real-time data and clever algorithms, based on the sharing of information. The application of Digital Twins within the rail sector, holds a great promise to meet the increasing demand for sustainable transport solutions and significantly accelerate the required mobility transition
