Movement Strategies is advising Siemens as they design their next generation trains for the European market.

Our work has involved the construction of Legion simulation models of passenger boarding and alighting of several alternative train configurations within distinct station environments.The outcomes of the modelling work are being translated into design advice which informs rolling stock and station configuration, taking into account factors relating to the physical features of the train as well as passenger behaviour. In addition to the modelling work, we will provide an ongoing consultancy support on to advise on how simulations can be used to influence the optimisation of train designs for passenger movement.
