Using the latest digital technology, across Hitachi Rail we are delivering solutions to improve passenger experience.
Our station and information systems focus on three key areas to ensure safe and efficient railway operations – human flow application, smart security and smart ticketing – ensuring passenger journeys are seamless, integrated and enjoyable.
Effectively moving people around is essential for smart cities. It is an innovative solution, not just for railway operations, but also the overall experience of city life.
Using human flow data, Hitachi are developing a series of solutions that can solve transport challenges and contribute to enhancing the overall experience of our passengers.
In order to maximise human flow initiatives, we:
1. Provide passengers with congestion information
2. Use data to optimise the operation of trains - Leveraging the real-time congestion rate, the number of trains can be optimised automatically.
3. Predict future congestion – Through analysing the data from auto-fare collection systems, future congestion can be predicted.
4. Connect transportation to other services and cities - By utilising historical human flow data and by looking at data and travel trends with enhanced personal preferences.
