Research into the Optimisation of Passenger Rail
A particular focus of netwiss is on the railway sector and more specifically the optimisation of passenger vehicles for rail. netwiss builds on extensive experience and 20 years of intensive research, with data from more than 400,000 passengers in Europe on: the carrying of luggage; behaviour on trains when looking for a seat; behaviour when storing luggage and behaviour during the journey, as well as from more than 20,000 people when boarding and deboarding the train. We also have survey feedback from more than 60,000 passengers relating to their requirements and difficulties when travelling by rail.
Consultations for Rail Manufacturers, Designers and Operators
Building on this extensive scientific expertise, netwiss advises vehicle manufacturers, designers and operators of public transport in the context of design studies, concrete developments, new construction or redesign of vehicles or in optimisation measures in daily operation. The aim of the consultation is always to find an economical optimum that enables the shortest possible passenger changeover time, the best possible luggage storage, the highest possible degree of utilisation and the best possible consideration for the comfort demands and needs of the passengers. On top of that, netwiss has extensive expertise in the subject of accessibility.
