Winners announced in competition to improve rail services using data-driven solutions

Featured story
RSSB is pleased to announce the winners of its £500,000 Data Sandbox: Improving Network Performance competition, which was launched in October 2017 via the Rail Research UK Association (RRUKA).

The five feasibility studies funded through the competition look at how industry data can be used and analysed to reduce delays, improve dwell times, better understand train movements and improve overall network operational performance by developing tools to support and optimise performance management.  Streamlining processes using data analysis in this way will produce more robust information providing operational savings for Network Rail, the operators and improve the overall experience of rail customers.

More value from data and services timed to the second are two of the key capabilities derived from the Rail Technical Strategy the competition seeks to address.
