World Congress is the launchpad for Trainfo and its Trainfo Mobility and Trainfo Insights technologies that predict when trains will block roadways at level crossings and the congestion that will result.
Thousands of roads are blocked every day as trains pass through level crossings, causing delay for millions of vehicles. Trainfo Mobility predicts when the crossings will be blocked and the congestion that will result and communicates directly with traffic signals in order to clear the congestion faster.
The company also shares this information with motorists through dynamic message signs and apps such as Waze, enabling drivers to use alternative routes.
Trainfo Insights produces detailed statistics about crossing blockage to quantify delays, vehicle emissions and collision risks at each crossing – information which can feed into a benefit-cost analysis to build a business case for new infrastructure. The system includes a live, online dashboard with maps and graphs to illustrate railway crossing blockages.
