Railway traffic management is the combination of monitoring the progress of trains, forecasting of the likely future progression of trains, and evaluating the impact of intervention options in near real time in order to make traffic adjustments that minimise the combined delay of trains when measured against the planned timetable.
In a time of increasing demand for rail travel, the desire to maximise the usage of the available infrastructure capacity competes with the need for contingency space to allow traffic management when disruption occurs. Optimisation algorithms and decision support tools therefore need to be increasingly sophisticated and traffic management has become a crucial function in meeting the growing expectations of rail travellers for punctuality and quality of service.
Resonate is a technology company specialising in rail and connected transport solutions. We have embarked on a drive to maximise capacity and performance through the use of mathematical, statistical, data-driven and machine learning based methods driving decision support and automated traffic management solutions.
