Intelligent computer vision agents optimising PTI safety and train dwell times
Lancaster University, Digital Rail Ltd and NTTX Ltd
This work is being taken forward by Digital Rail Ltd who will demo the technology at Rail Live on 19-20 June 2019.
This project suggests novel, complementary, improvements to the systems available to train drivers and platform staff to reduce PTI FWI (Fatality Weighted Injuries) incidents and benefit the dispatch process as a whole. It augments CCTV available to personnel with an autonomous computer vision agent that detects and identifies potential PTI incidents, so that platform staff are able to also flag potential incidents and direct colleagues to investigate and assist.
