Location-based solutions to improve logistics and maintenance processes in Transportation

Request For Solution

Our life is inextricably linked with motion. We are constantly moving forward in exploring new routes and places. It doesn't matter if it's a trip on the subway, flight to another city or a trip by train to the suburbs - we value safety, speed and convenience. And modern technologies are intended to satisfy these high requirements to ease our lives and save valuable time.

Navigine shares this vision and has created location based services to improve transportation that includes four solutions:

Passengers Wayfinding

It’s hard to imagine our lives without location based services that permanently use GPS. But how to find the way to the target destination inside the buildings, where GPS doesn’t work? In such situations indoor navigation comes in handy. Our technologies allow to build great solutions for indoor navigation for airports and railways. We detect a passenger’s position and suggest the best wayfinding inside a building.

  • Features:
  • interactive maps of stations and connections with points of interest (POI);
  • way-finding function with construction of routes to any POIs;
  • real-time navigation at floor plans like in Google maps;
  • useful location based notifications on changing schedules and transport situation.
  • Expected benefits:
  • Passengers loyalty increase due to the improvement in customer experience.
  • Opportunity for additional revenue from retail enterprises through the new mobile chan­nel.
  • Advanced analytics on app users’ traffic to improve safety and reduce bottlenecks.
People Flows Tracking

Flows of people vary significantly during the day with peaks in different times and destination points: in the airport gates, information points, baggage claim area, railway platforms and other places. A large congestion of people in the same location may cause the formation of bottlenecks. Which is, in turn, may lead to interrupted operations and cause risks for people’s safety. Optimization of people flows is a big challenge. A special tool for indoor tracking of smartphones with enabled Wi-Fi may solve this issue. Navigine provides real-time and aggregated passenger traffic data and allows to effectively use it in always changing transportation system conditions.

  • Features:
  • “visual” monitoring of passenger traffic using heat maps and flow maps;
  • monitoring of statistical parameters of passenger traffic and bottlenecks identification;
  • traffic segmentation on regular, transit and temporary visitors (without personalisation);
  • automatic signalling in case of dangerous peaks in passenger concentration.
  • Expected benefits:
  • Real time monitoring of passenger traffic to ensure quick reaction on changing conditions.
  • Analytics for optimization of internal logistics on stations and connections.
  • Public safety increase due to gradual improvement in traffic management capabilities.
Staff Navigation

Employees responsible for maintenance and repair, traffic control and security have to perform their daily tasks. Transport conditions may change very fast and require quickly informed actions. In complex urban conditions, the transportation systems need a mobile assistance for effective staff navigation to instantly react on ongoing situations. Navigine provides a comprehensible guidance for staff to navigate through multiple transportation areas with different environments.

  • Features:
  • interactive maps of stations/connections/tunnels/depots with key elements and assets on them;
  • way finding function with construction of routes to any element according work assignments;
  • real-time navigation at floor maps with the list of assignments;
  • location based notifications regarding changing assignments and transport situation.
  • Expected benefits:
  • Real time staff navigation and corrections of daily assignments.
  • Increase in safety level due to immediate reaction on changing conditions.
  • Optimization of logistics and maintenance processes.
Assets Tracking

Transportation systems are constantly trying to improve maintenance processes in order to serve passengers with high quality and at low costs. One the most important factor in maintenance is effective asset management. In order to help optimize asset management Navigine has created solutions for real-time equipment and vehicles tracking. In addition to real-time data these solutions provide aggregated analytics on vehicles and equipment movements over the time and allow to obtain useful insights on existing inefficiencies and way to tackle them.

  • Features:
  • real time tracking of assets position with key operation and maintenance parameters;
  • notifications about unexpected situations, risks at transport hubs;
  • creation and customisation of analytical reports by time, tracked objects or processes;
  • aggregation of data on logistics and maintenance process inefficiencies.
  • Expected benefits:
  • Real time positioning of all valuable and business critical vehicles and equipment.
  • Analytics for optimization of internal logistics in transport infrastructure.
  • Public safety increase due to gradual improvement in asset management.
Railways

We have developed mobile passenger navigation at railway station. Navigine’s information system for monitoring and analysis in real-time passenger traffic at public transport network within the large urban agglomerations allowed to put together data about all routes in the city, data about carriers working on these routes, and data about current and forecasted load on these routes.

Subway

The most significant use case for transportation industry was project for Subway. Our complex solution includes location based services for stations, depots and tunnels. Navigine has worked on the navigation app for passengers, pilot system of staff tracking and “friend or foe” access control in tunnels and depots of Subway.

Airport

An experience of the traveler consists of a variety of airport service - from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration through to departure at the gate. To improve product key performance indicators for more than 31 million passengers we developed a mobile platform. It is used to provide positioning on the map, routing and finding features like check-in desks, gates, restaurants etc.
