Public Transport Fleet Utilization and Fleet Management

Measuring the utilization of a fleet of vehicles is difficult, but essential for scheduling.

Public transport fleet utilization and fleet management

Measuring the utilization of a vehicle fleet is difficult, but essential for timetable planning. Buses, trains, streetcars and subways often do not have a standardized IT infrastructure, making the integration of sensors costly. However, many vehicles are equipped with safety cameras.

In the following articles, we describe how passenger counting and higher-level vehicle utilization can be calculated using video analytics:

  • Automatic passenger counting in trains, subways and streetcars
  • Automatic passenger counting in buses
  • Passenger counting methods

This article describes how passenger statistics from individual cameras can be aggregated to draw general conclusions and provide real-time insights. The image below shows the network map of a major city. The complexity of the network map increases even further if the different bus routes were included.

Grouping: Camera - Vehicle - Line - Network

Grouping sensors to obtain insights at vehicle level is done with a few clicks via the Isarsoft tagging system. Vehicles can in turn be grouped into lines in a second step. The image below shows this relationship.

Linking passenger statistics with vehicle locations

While count data alone is already a powerful tool for network analysis and optimization, it becomes even more valuable when combined with vehicle location data.

Location data can come from either GPS signals or vehicle station data.

Data analysis

The Isarsoft Dashboard enables intuitive analysis of Big Data. Thanks to the tagging system and a user-friendly query tool, planners, mobility managers and executives can identify trends, make spatial comparisons and identify potential for optimization.

With a wide range of video analytics functions Isarsoft Perception supports public transport fleet management.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
