Innovations in construction industry for transportation engineering

  • 1 University of architecture, civil engineering and geodesy Sofia, Bulgaria


Innovation in the global economy has been very intense in recent decades. Changing the industry based on digitalization and the introduction of 5G technology brings new challenges and opportunities.
There is a serious construction industry in the field of transport construction that fully or partially caters to the industry. The transition to a “smart”, digitalized and decentralized industry is yet to come. In the field of railroads, centralization and conservatism are respected. It is preferable to follow world practice, patents and regulations. The theme of EU rail interoperability also gives its specificity, but the development towards the robotic industry is yet to come. Change must first be studied, designed and implemented. The report analyzes the existing situation and formulates conclusions for innovations in the construction industry serving the transport construction industry.
