Smart Navigation in Selected Metro Stations

Safety and health

image-smart_navigation_in_selected_metro_stations

The project was sanctioned by the PTC in June 2019. The aim of the project was an application for orientantion in navigationally problematic locations simplification, metro stations and surroundings in this case, meaning:

  • Navigation directly to metro stations targets (WC, booking spots, platforms, lifts)
  • Navigation to the places surrouding metro stations (onward transport, parking lots, sights)
  • Disabled people needs specification (paths adjustment, lifts operation information etc.)
  • The possibility of creating a virtual tour (actual environment display)

PTC in a partner role would allow for a pilot testing in selected metro stations. PTC would allow for HW installation (small battery beacons – communication via bluetooth) for mobile phones in a metro staition location and communication with an application. The implementation will take place in Florenc, Smíchovské nádraží and Nádraží Holešovice stations. Within the pilot project navigation will be tested both in transfer station, transfer to bus, tram or train.

Currently pilot project assessment is taking place.

 

Benefits:

  • Navigation directly to metro stations targets (WC, booking spots, platforms, lifts)
  • Navigation to the places surrouding metro stations (onward transport, parking lots, sights)
  • Disabled people needs specification (paths adjustment, lifts operation information etc.)
  • The possibility of creating a virtual tour (actual environment display)
