If the trains in the above video only had something like automatic passenger counting…
What is automatic passenger counting? Automatic passenger counting (APC) is a relatively new technology in the transportation industry. It is used by fleet companies that manage taxis, buses and coaches, and trains and trams, as well as VIP luxury vans. The main aim of such a system is to collect data related to the number of passengers who board and alight from vehicles when they are working.
Since its inception, there has been a major evolution in the technology used as APC systems moved from manual operation to full automation. Today, APC can achieve incredible results.
- Independent counting of passengers through the use of facial recognition cameras and sensors installed near the door makes the system accurate.
- Weight sensing technology can estimate the number of passengers on board.
- APC systems transmit data in real time
