Increasing efficiency with vehicle layout

25 October 2023 10:20 - 11:05

The vehicle layout has a very strong influence on passenger behaviour and thus on efficiency. Through the correct arrangement and dimensioning of chair, tables, luggage racks and much more, the efficiency of vehicles can be increased through a better degree of utilisation and significantly shorter dwell time combined with a significant reduction in energy. Based on two decades of research, the vehicle optimisation software TrainOptimizer was developed to check and optimise the efficiency of vehicles.
