The technological innovation of Stratio, a company originally from Coimbra, is about to gain global prominence in Singapore, where it will be implemented in more than 3,000 buses. Founded in 2017 with a clear vision of improving the quality of public transport, Stratio has developed predictive maintenance technology driven by artificial intelligence (AI). This revolutionary system acts as an early warning for operators, allowing them to identify and correct potential failures before they occur, thus ensuring a more reliable and efficient service for passengers.

After consolidating its success in several investment rounds and proving its effectiveness in reducing costs and increasing the reliability of transport services around the world, Stratio has entered into a strategic partnership with the renowned transport company SBS Transit in Singapore. This project, which will be the world's largest in terms of predictive maintenance in public transport, will cover the majority of the city's bus network, totaling more than 3,000 vehicles.

The choice of Singapore as the location for this project was no accident. The city-state is known worldwide for the excellence of its public transport system, and is often held up as a model to follow in terms of efficiency and quality. Thus, by implementing its innovative technology in Singapore, Stratio not only strengthens its global presence, but also demonstrates its commitment to contribute to the continuous improvement of urban mobility worldwide.

The partnership between Stratio and SBS Transit goes beyond simply implementing a new technology. It represents an important milestone in the transition to more sustainable and eco-friendly public transport. With the introduction of electric buses and the ambitious goal of having at least 50% of Singapore's public fleet made up of zero-emission vehicles by 2030, the two companies are leading the way towards greener and more sustainable urban mobility.

In addition, this partnership is a testament to the key role that Coimbra plays as a hub for technological innovation not only in Portugal but also on a global level. By exporting its predictive maintenance expertise to Singapore, Stratio is putting the city on the map as a reference point at the forefront of transportation technology.

All in all, the implementation of Stratio's technology in more than 3,000 buses in Singapore represents not only a significant breakthrough in the field of predictive maintenance in public transport, but also an important step towards a more sustainable and efficient future in terms of global urban mobility.
