SMART TERMINAL FOR MAKING TRANSFERS BETWEEN VARIOUS TRANSPORT MODES USED BY PASSENGERS WITH REDUCED MOBILITY

Jana Kalikova, Jan Krcal

Abstract :

–In this article, the authors write about passengers‘ mobility in complex transport terminals. The issue is usually dealt with within the scope of information systems that inform the passengers on the optimal route and the time needed to complete the transfer. The authors developed a methodology to calculate the time needed for the transfer with various transport infrastructure components on the transfer route. The methodology accounts for various groups of passengers (i. g. wheelchair users, passengers with a pram, elderly passengers). Based on this methodology, the authors developed an algorithm to calculate transfer times. The algorithm accounts for combinations of transport infrastructure components for various groups of passengers. Accurate knowledge of the total time needed to complete a transfer can help to optimise making bus/train connections or it can be used in Smart Cities applications.
