Further to this morning’s news around recommendations for nationwide high-speed rail, expert comment from Adam Perry, director at Resonate, a provider of connected transport solutions.
Adam Perry, director, Resonate comments:
“Building a faster, more efficient rail network is critical not only for improving Britain’s transport links but for driving economic growth. Whilst speed of service is crucial, we also need to see a data-driven approach to managing the capacity and punctuality of train services across the country.
This means offering rail users better connected journeys, capturing and analysing data to spot overcrowding, identifying congestion on the network and taking action to prevent problems before they happen. We’ve already seen huge progress in smart transport solutions in the automotive sector, so it’s time for the rail industry to reach its full potential by putting technology at the heart of service delivery.”
