In existing control rooms across the UK, it is often difficult to see, react and resolve issues such as delays, quickly and efficiently. Control uses a joined up collaborative team effort to ensure the train service runs to the timetable. Control requires the tools to provide a complete overview of the train service and infrastructure to minimise the impact of any disruption.
Our new solution, will provide visual and audio notifications/alerts to controllers, so they can identify and resolve problems before they escalate into bigger issues, which would cause larger delays, affecting the train service, and impacting customers.
This is a conceptual view of how our solution would be presented on a large 70” screen in Control. A complete overview of trains services on the move. Immediately, a controller will be able to:
Other data sets can be added over time, providing Controllers with more information to make improved decision making. The live map can also bring in known infrastructure problems (potentially fed from out in the field by ITAL Kinetic). These can be triggered by train movements that feed into our Zonal Messaging module.
The same real-time map information can be presented to Controllers on a desk monitor, but this version of the map will be interactive and have more infrastructure details. A controller will be able to click on the Map, drill down further and look at individual services, infrastructure and route issues.
