Utilising deep analytics to predict reactionary delays and dwell time variation in the new accessible railway
In collaboration with the Rail Delivery Group and Govia Thameslink Railway
To understand factors that affect dwell time and network performance, this project will use historic and current data sets from multiple modes of transport to explore deep, and potentially hidden, correlations.
Transreport’s Passenger Assist system is a novel platform that allows disabled passengers to make assistance requests. This project will use data from the system to identify scenarios where targeted assistance could reduce or mitigate the risk of increased dwell, and its potential for propagation.
The work could provide operators with new ways to predict and mitigate delays, while ensuring a better service for disabled passengers, who tend to be the worst affected during disruption.
