PUBLIC TRANSPORT

WHY NOW?

The public transport industry is a key player in redefining mobility and taking environmental issues into account, with notably the development of autonomous vehicles or multimodal transport. Indeed, public transport is considered to be the most reliable long-term solution to reducing pollution.

Thus, operators of these modes of transport must be able to guarantee a level of service corresponding to the height of these challenges. Yet, they still have difficulty controlling increasingly saturated transport networks, and managing planning, forecasting, maintenance, information, fraud, or malicious acts.

CHALLENGES

SECURITY AND FRAUD PREVENTION

IMPROVE USER EXPERIENCE

INFRASTRUCTURE MAINTENANCE

CHALLENGES

In 2017, one theft out of 7 took place on public transport, and more than a third of them in the Île de France region. The fraud rate in France is on average 8.9%, compared to 3.1% in other major Western capitals.

  • Identify a person using public transport fraudulently
  • Intervene in time in the event of an attempted assault or theft
  • Prevent terrorist acts at operating sites
  • Prevent the deliberate degradation of rolling stock and infrastructure

SOLUTIONS

  • Detection of abandoned luggage and weapons

Send an intervention team at the slightest sign of suspicion and prevent a terrorist attack within your network.

  • Detection of unusual crowding or movement

Analyze in real time a dangerous gathering and intervene quickly.

  • Detection of intrusion into a prohibited area or storage area

Be alerted when an unauthorized individual enters a restricted area.

ADVANTAGES

  • Increase your income by apprehending fraudulent people
  • Strengthen security measures to prevent a terrorist act on your sites
  • Restore a safe environment among your users in your operating sites

CHALLENGES

Delays, train cancellations, and crowded wagons, cause inconvenience for public transport users : at rush hour in the RER A in Paris, there are on average between 4 and 6 passengers per square meter.

  • Improve flow management in transit areas
  • Adapt traffic according to demand
  • Prevent delays due to setbacks

SOLUTIONS

  • Counting individuals

Accurately model the traffic to your operations site by site and adapt your resources accordingly.

  • Detection of lying down or falling persons

Respond more quickly to passenger accidents and avoid injuries and delays.

  • Detection of persons or obstacles on the tracks

Avoid delays and accidents to make your network more fluid and secure.

ADVANTAGES

  • Optimize the network to adapt the traffic flow to the number of users
  • Reduce delays by anticipating unforeseen events that cause traffic to stop or slow down

CHALLENGES

In France, 59% of train delays are directly due to breakdowns attributable to the operator. Equipment failure is the primary cause of metro delays.

  • Switch from corrective/reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance
  • Know the state of deterioration of networks and rolling stock in real time

SOLUTIONS

  • Detection of anomalies on network infrastructures

Develop a real-time mapping of the state of your networks, be they catenaries, pantographs, rails, switch systems, crossings, etc.

  • Visual inspection of rolling stock

Anticipate breakdowns and/or speed up troubleshooting operations by continuously inspecting your equipment.

ADVANTAGES

  • Increase the capacity of your networks by optimizing interventions before deterioration causes failures.
  • Reduce costs:
    • Of unavailability (compensation in case of delay, cancellation etc)
    • Of intervention (better planning)
