Route Konnect develop IoT sensor networks to track more detailed real-time traffic and congestion movements. They worked with Transport for Wales during cohort 2 of the innovation accelerator to solve anonymously counting and tracking passengers at trains and stations for TfWR.
This information can then be provided in real-time to provide live data to the front line and to customers, allowing rail passengers on trains and in stations to make more informed decisions surrounding their travels.
Their MVP included passenger counting, seat occupation detection, as well as checking social distancing and mask compliance between passengers. Their solution would allow stations to test layout changes to improve passenger flow with real-time information. Route Konnect received a commendation as part of cohort 2 for excellent performance across the programme!
