The Trains Of The Future Will Display Intelligent Information About Passenger Density

Just last night a man fell between the train and the platform at Liverpool station in the UK, due to overcrowding. If that's not reason enough for train companies to adopt this X-ray vision concept, I don't know what is.

It's the work of 4-id Creative Network, who have conjured up what I hope is the future of train networks worldwide. Knowing where to stand on the train platform to ensure you can not only board the train, but possibly get a seat too would be worth paying a little extra in train fares.

The redesigned display board at stations could display such information as Wi-Fi availability, whether special services are on offer, passenger density and the usual train information such as the time, train line and end destination. I'm convinced it's the future - and with most cities suffering from overcrowding, particularly on public transport service, it could end up saving a lot of lives. [Yanko Design]
