Barcelona Tram presents project to improve information on users’ riding habits

(19/11/2018)   

The project, which was launched a year ago in response to the need for a system that can get better information on users’ riding habits, combines the use of mobile devices and Wi-Fi sensors to monitor riders’ activity.

The information is calibrated using the infrared person-counting system installed on the trams. The technology is now in the roll-out phase and will be fully operational within the coming months.

The obtained data will help make service more efficient, having an impact on transport variables such as cost, power use and pollution. Tram is working on this project in collaboration with the Eurecat technology centre (a Tecnio member), specialised in multidisciplinary and multi-sector solutions in the digital, industrial and biotechnology fields.
