Navigation around train and bus stations, and other high-density places such as shopping centres, can be particularly difficult for vulnerable passengers or those requiring extra assistance. TRAVEL XR seeks to improve the current operating systems using 5G’s higher capacity for camera data and locational accuracies, and offers a solution utilising wearables, cameras and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to detect people in walkways. This will enable systems to offer micro guidance within stations, ultimately improving passenger safety and experience.
