Porterbrook's passenger vehicles make thousands of journeys daily. Collectively, the fleet travels across the entire UK railway network several times a day - generating and recording billions of event-based data points.
Network Rail has a large number of treatment trains,
including Multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs), Railhead Treatment Trains (RHTTs) and Snow and Ice Treatment Trains (SITTs), which are highly active in the autumn and winter months. However, these fleets are not digitally well-equipped for tracking and recording data, and much of their operation is documented manually. As part of the Seasonal Intelligence Platform, Route Reports' devices are installed on the trains to track vehicle location and exactly where treatments have or have not occurred - integrating into the Seasonal Intelligence Platform.
