Eviden Passenger Analytics and Counting Engine (PACE) empowers ÖBB, Austrian Federal Railways to perform accurate and extensive passenger data. By monitoring real-life data situations, it establishes a solid foundation for effective planning and data-driven business decisions.

The Challenge

Modern trains offer a rich array of sensory information (GPS, speed, timestamps, doors, locks, etc.). This diverse array of raw data needs to be consolidated, validated and matched with train schedules, delays, stations and vehicle master data to enable useful reporting.

The Solution

Eviden PACE delivers efficient data processing and matching algorithms to provide a comprehensive and user-friendly reporting solution. This was achieved through:

  • Customized raw data parsing
  • Smart and customized matching of raw data to planned schedules, stations and other master data
  • Calculation of passenger counts and automatic correction of measurement errors
  • Extensive configuration tailored to the customer’s needs
  • Live reporting through various dashboards
  • Exporting functionality
  • Best-in-class monitoring

Eviden was responsible for the entire end-to-end process, including architecture, implementation, testing and operations. For optimal functionality, reliability and scalability the application is hosted on Microsoft Azure.
