    congestion is worse at the center of a very limited number of lots of people
    0:22
    into changing between different services so there's lots of trains lots of buses
    0:26
    and other vehicles and lots of people moving in different directions and this
    0:31
    is why congestion become so difficult to manage UTS is developing a new transport
    0:38
    technology called responsive passenger information systems there are three key
    0:45
    factors at play in urban passenger transport systems physical
    0:49
    infrastructures operating procedures and the travel behavior of uses physical
    0:55
    infrastructures include vehicles and carriageways creating the network
    0:59
    structure operating procedures include the rules and service plan in
    1:04
    combination with physical infrastructures days create the actual
    1:08
    service offered to passengers
    1:10
    that incorporates the timetable capacity and relative travel speed of the service
    1:16
    the passenger travel behaviour response influences household and business
    1:21
    location to see patterns of land use activity and ultimately economic
    1:26
    agglomeration and productivity levels responsive passenger information systems
    1:31
    involved all commenting high-cost physical infrastructures with low-cost
    1:36
    robotic sensor and digital communication techniques this gives public transport
    1:41
    operators additional options for improving services because they can see
    1:46
    what passengers are doing in real time and respond to changes in passenger
    1:50
    behavior
    1:58
    school passenger information systems use prime motives behind the real point of
    2:05
    difference
    2:05
    our approach is that we we are planning to add up a few in real-time transport
    2:12
    providers can address the issues
    2:21
    and there is all of this is that if passengers decided that it is not
    2:38
    helpful to them and they might choose to disregard that information to any
    2:42
    passenger information systems such as greenspan timetable information on a
    2:47
    train platform and much more frequently updated sources haitian-on-haitian this
    2:52
    means that passengers are much more likely to use this information will
    2:56
    affect their behavior doesn't do enjoy
    3:07
    for this type of technology has allowed transport operators to accurately
    3:16
    measure the behavior of passengers in real time and react so what this legend
    3:22
    do is as they changed the way they operate the transport network they can
    3:26
    measure the effect it has on passengers safety responsive passenger information
    3:31
    systems potentially as a new global rail technology it's a natural complement to
    3:37
    the new signalling systems are emerging from Europe and it has the potential to
    3:43
    reduce the problem the conflicts between passengers and trains and operators on
    3:48
    railway stations all over the world
