Saffron Walden-based LPA Connection Systems and the University of Essex are working together to help create the UK’s first ‘smart’ train.
The duo have received funding from InnovateUK, the government’s innovation agency, to develop high-speed rail communication systems to meet the needs of future rail passengers and operators.
The 36 month collaboration will look to improve ‘train-to-shore’ communication speeds using cutting-edge wireless technology.
This means passengers will be able to access better wi-fi services and through the Internet of Things (IoT) will be able to tailor their experience through their smart devices such as phones and tablets.
