How IoT Technology Increases Resilience for Public Transportation

Public transportation systems worldwide have been facing enormous challenges because their systems are highly vulnerable to disease outbreaks, but they are also essential for daily mobility. Depending on the status of the crisis in the location, public transportation managers are going to have to minimize risks so that everyone using their service is safe, and that is not an easy task to do.

Fixing a problem that demands smart policy and a new idea of how public transportation works might sound challenging, but with the right IoT technology in place, you can make sure every service runs well and every passenger is safe. Here’s how IoT can increase public transportations’ resilience during the pandemic and beyond.

Fleet Operation Automation and Real-Time Monitoring

Transport operations should be used to discourage unnecessary travel in accordance with government policy, including departures, reducing transport dispatch frequencies, and recommended routes. Automation and real-time monitoring systems give you city-wide visibility and control over every aspect of your operations like resource, fleet, route, and schedule adjustments to quickly implement any changes.

Informative Passenger Communication

Communication is important for maintaining confidence in transport services and dealing with any situation with complete transparency. With a passenger information system, transport managers can keep their passengers fully informed, simultaneously and consistently across a wide range of channels: mobile apps, screens at stations, and displays in the transport vehicles.

Manage Passenger Flows and Prevent Overload

Accurate real-time transport information enables travelers to plan their trip in advance and time their arrival so that they do not take any unnecessary steps. In the transportation hub like a railway station, for example, passenger-counting IoT-powered cameras can be installed at both the station and trains. The integration of these cameras with the transit management system enables you to keep track of load restrictions easily.

Cloud-Based Systems for Resilience Enhancement

Cloud-based devices enable the public transport sector to operate their company digitally. These platforms offer great resilience by enabling workplace mobility and they are accessible remotely from any internet-connected device like smartphones or laptops, which means transport managers can still run the transport system without being present on the company premises.

The Internet of Things is having and will continue to have a large impact globally, including the public transport sector. Not only accurate arrival and departure times of vehicles make riding more pleasant and efficient, but the connection between public transportation and stations can also help transportation managers deal with high volumes, and reduce delays.
