Public Transport Fleet Occupancy Monitoring

Measuring the utilization of a vehicle fleet is difficult but essential for schedule planning. Buses, trains, trams and metros often do not have a standardized IT infrastructure which makes the integration of sensors costly. However, many vehicles in public transport are equipped with cameras.

In the below articles we outline how passenger counting and subsequent vehicle occupancy can be inferred from camera images:

This article covers how the information can be aggregated to draw high-level conclusions and get insights in realtime. The image below illustrates the Transit map of a large city. The complexity even further increases when one would include the various bus lines in such network.

Grouping: Cameras - Vehicles - Lines - Network

Grouping sensors to get vehicle-level insights is done in a matter of clicks through the Isarsoft tagging system. Vehicles can than in a second step be aggregated as lines. The image below illustrates this relationship.

Connecting Passenger Statistics and Vehicle Location

While the counting data alone is already a powerful tool to analyse and optimize the network, it becomes even more useful when being combined with the location data of the vehicles.
The location data can either come from GPS signals or the station data of the vehicles.
