The RSSB Innovation Programme is pleased to announce the winners of its Train Operator Competition 2016 (TOC’16) who will now take their projects forward to the next stage of development.
A key barrier to innovation within the rail sector is the ability of train operating companies to engage effectively with the rail supply chain. The TOC’16 competition is designed to encourage greater collaboration between both, challenging them to work together to develop new and innovative ways to improve performance, reliability and safety on the railway while enhancing the customer experience.
Funded by RSSB, the £4m competition fund enables the winners to move their projects into the delivery phase, subject to contract.
The selected projects include new ways to manage service disruption and station overcrowding plus the use of wearable technology to understand customer wellbeing throughout their end-to-end journey.
