Seoul Metro is working with the world-renowned firm TMB from Barcelona, Spain, to build a digitalized subway road map.
Based on the IoT self-developed and operated by each organization, both the ‘Seoul Metro Machinery Big Data Analysis System (SAMBA)’, which analyzes and maintains the status of machinery, and the ‘Smart Motors’ system, which is operated by TMB to monitor the operational state and passenger congestion of subway trains, will be installed and tested in each other’s subways for performance verification.
Technologies related to the development and operation of platform safety gates will also be shared. Seoul Metro has experience in developing and operating more than 19,000 platform safety gate modules during 4 years. After integration, TMB proposed Seoul Metro, which has received international recognition for its technology and scale, to share knowledge on the development and operation of platform safety gates.
Both organizations will design and promote a digitalized subway road map that can be applied as standard to subways in the future after a process of verification.
