HOTSPLOTS Pas­sen­ger volu­me & pas­sen­ger flows

WiFi based Pas­sen­ger Flow and Pas­sen­ger Volu­me analytics

Exten­si­on of the eva­lua­ti­on opti­ons for mobi­le hotspots

HOTSPLOTS uti­li­ses WiFi usa­ge data from exis­ting hot­spots to gain fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and thus expand the ran­ge of func­tions and eva­lua­ti­on opti­ons. The­se infor­ma­ti­on can be used to deter­mi­ne and visua­li­se pas­sen­ger flows and pas­sen­ger volumes.

Based on HOTSPLOTS Tele­me­try, the pro­ject-spe­ci­fic expan­si­on of data pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out within the frame­work of HOTSPLOTS Pas­sen­ger Flows & Pas­sen­ger Volu­me, inclu­ding the recor­ding of data from end devices in the hot­spot envi­ron­ment and other infor­ma­ti­on available in the vehic­le. The­se can be data on the cur­rent trip (e.g. infor­ma­ti­on on line, stop or direc­tion of tra­vel) and from the vehic­le its­elf (e.g. door signals).

HOTSPLOTS pro­ces­ses the available infor­ma­ti­on and dis­plays the­se gra­phi­cal­ly or pro­vi­des the aggre­ga­ted data for inte­gra­ti­on into cus­to­mer sys­tems via API.

The solu­ti­on is divi­ded into the two sec­tions “Pas­sen­ger Volu­me” and “Pas­sen­ger Flows”, which can be used for dif­fe­rent appli­ca­ti­on scenarios.

HOTSPLOTS Pas­sen­ger Volume

By means of the WiFi usa­ge data of vehic­le rou­ters, it is pos­si­ble to deter­mi­ne the uti­li­sa­ti­on in vehic­les. Com­bi­ned with infor­ma­ti­on on the cur­rent trip, the­se data can be made available in real time and can also be used in the HOTSPLOTS eva­lua­ti­on plat­form for his­to­ri­cal analyses.

Fea­tures at a glance:

  • Eva­lua­ti­on of end devices at vehic­le level (hot­spot)
  • Cor­re­la­ti­on with line/trip possible
  • In the cloud: Exten­si­ve func­tions for eva­lua­ting pas­sen­ger data in the HOTSPLOTS cus­to­mer area.
  • From the cloud: Down­load of data for own fur­ther processing
  • Live within your own sys­tem: API for retrie­ving data in real time for indi­vi­du­al use, e.g. for heat maps, capa­ci­ty uti­li­sa­ti­on dis­plays, thres­hold ana­ly­ses, traf­fic plan­ning, etc.
  • No sepa­ra­te con­sent by WiFi users required

Pos­si­ble use sce­na­ri­os of the data:

  • Dis­play of the vehic­le uti­li­sa­ti­on on a map view (web­site & app). This allows pas­sen­gers to see in advan­ce whe­ther the next bus or train is crow­ded and, if neces­sa­ry, take the ride at a later time or switch to ano­ther line.

  • Data-based mea­su­re­ment of thres­hold values, e.g. the num­ber of pas­sen­gers in vehic­les or on plat­forms (incre­asing safety)
  • Veri­fi­ca­ti­on of models and fore­casts (com­pa­ri­son of expec­ted pas­sen­ger volu­me at a cer­tain point in time vs. actu­al pas­sen­ger volume)

HOTSPLOTS Pas­sen­ger Flows

HOTSPLOTS offers a GDPR-com­pli­ant solu­ti­on for recor­ding, pro­ces­sing and visua­li­sing the move­ments of pas­sen­ger flows. With the ope­ra­ti­on of a public WiFi hot­spot, signals from end devices can be pro­ces­sed wit­hout addi­tio­nal hard­ware and instal­la­ti­on effort, so that con­ti­nuous quan­ti­ta­ti­ve state­ments about the trans­fer beha­viour and tra­vel rou­tes of users are pos­si­ble. A gra­phi­cal pre­sen­ta­ti­on offers the intui­ti­ve ana­ly­sis of pas­sen­ger flows for the opti­mi­sa­ti­on of public trans­port ser­vices in com­pli­ance with all data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons. For sys­tems that can be inte­gra­ted, an API export is also possible.

Fea­tures at a glance:

  • Moni­to­ring of asso­cia­ted devices at trans­port net­work level (across hotspots)
  • Various data can be added (e.g. IBIS vehic­le bus, ITCS)
  • Use for pas­sen­ger flow ana­ly­sis, rou­te planning/optimisation and many more applications

Pos­si­ble use sce­na­ri­os of the data:

  • Exten­si­ve data on place of depar­tu­re, trans­fer stops and desti­na­ti­on stops used by pas­sen­gers in the trans­port network
  • Data-based plan­ning and opti­mi­sa­ti­on for new and exis­ting lines through ana­ly­sis of pas­sen­ger flows
  • Insights from the ana­ly­sis of pas­sen­ger flows can be used to opti­mi­se time­ta­bles and vehic­le dispatching
  • Veri­fi­ca­ti­on of models and fore­casts (com­pa­ri­son of expec­ted pas­sen­ger volu­me at a cer­tain point in time vs. actu­al pas­sen­ger volume)
