After expert jury: Now online voting determines the winner of the VCÖ Mobility Award

Pleasingly, the project Pilot LEO, which was successfully implemented from July 2020 to October 2021 by client ÖBB-Produktion GmbH, contractor dwh GmbH and subcontractor Anexia GmbH, was selected by an expert jury at the VCÖ Mobility Award as one of the best 5 projects in the category “Digitalization in Mobility”.

LEO (Pilot Locomotive Optimization) supports planners in their daily work by providing a software tool that optimizes and simulates the schedules of a reference week according to various criteria. The methods developed for this purpose from the fields of simulation, artificial intelligence and optimization contribute significantly to the creation of more efficient and reliable locomotive schedules.

In a total of 13 categories of the VCÖ Mobility Award 2022, the five submissions (six in the case of a tie) best rated by the expert jury are nominated for public online voting. Here points can be gained in addition to the evaluation by the expert jury. These are added to a total result in order to obtain the winner of the VCČ Mobility Award.

Participation in the online voting is possible once per day until Sunday, July 24, 2022, 23:59.
