The subway station offers a direct view into the way a metro system serves a city’s development. As the basic unit of any rail transit network’s operation and management, it forms the basis for the entire standardization of rail transit and is the key component around which rail transit operation and management takes place.
The number metro lines in China is now in the hundreds spanning networks in operation across dozens of cities, with a cumulative mileage now measured in thousands of kilometers. Nevertheless, the general public’s expectations for safe, convenient and efficient mass transit solutions, with accessible, good quality services and a seamlessly integrated commuting experience is only increasing.
Recently, the China Urban Rail Transit Association issued its Outline for the Development of Smart Urban Rail in China’s Metro Systems. The memorandum puts forward the guiding ideology of smart urban rail construction, expounding the key concepts involved in smart urban rail and proposing a two-step approach with one overarching goal and ten specific goals. Between them, the two approaches focus on smart passenger services and smart transport networks highlight best practice in the construction of smart stations.
The memo points out that with the rapid development of emerging information technologies such as cloud computing, big data, the ‘Internet of Things’, artificial intelligence, 5G, satellite communications, and blockchain technologies, the construction of smart stations in leading cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou is now clearly underway. Undoubtedly many other cities will be hot on their heels.
In this context, this forum is inviting key experts from metro companies in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other cities to participate and share their progress and experience in the construction of some of China’s most advanced smart station systems, with a focus on the technical details, the monitored results, and the lessons learnt through smart station construction. The various potentials for the future development of smart stations will also be broadly explored.
