Infodev EDI is developing Seat & Space occupancy detection technology based on A.I. image training recognition and an embedded algorithm. It is at the forefront of innovative technology.

Infodev EDI has applied years of expertise in detection technology, detection algorithms and machine learning to develop the Infodev innovative Seat and Space occupancy capability. Deep learning methods have been combined with an Infodev proven detection algorithm and our “big data” expertise to develop the next generation of spread and occupancy technology.

Infodev technology captures multiple images of each train compartment the images/pictures/videos are then processed and analysed with Infodev A.I. based detection algorithm to identify the number of persons standing, the number of free seats and also to detect objects (ex: luggage) in each compartment.

The continued success of Infodev EDI products and services can be seen in the UK and worldwide market where the passenger counting solution sees particular success due to its exceptional accuracy. Surpassing other technologies and due to its ease of installation, its exceptionally thin sensor array ensures that installation can be achieved in the most difficult scenarios. In the UK alone Infodev EDI equipment is fitted to train classes 142, 144, 150, 153, 155, 156, 158, 165, 168, 170, 185, 220, 221, 222, 230, 315, 321, 322, 323, 333, 442 and HST.
