A service that
improves travel
on the metro

InTO is a solution for making every trip on the metro more comfortable. The technology is installed on all trains as well as inside the Re Umberto station and pairs a system for measuring the flow of passengers with LEDs that reveal which railcars are the least crowded for boarding.

Objectives

InTO was created to help with the balanced filling of all railcars on a single train by allowing passengers to find the least crowded railcars, thereby improving the quality of the journey.

How it works

Over the initial phase, from June to December 2019 , the InTO system will be tested and made available to all travellers at the Re Umberto station metro stop.

While the metro is travelling from the previous station to Re Umberto, InTO estimates the number of passengers on each railcar.

Once at the Re Umberto Station, InTO uses coloured lights located on all doors to signal how full the given railcar is.
Users can therefore choose the least crowded railcar and enjoy the trip.

Users will enjoy a more comfortable trip and be more evenly spread out, reducing the stress caused by overcrowding.

FAQ

Questions and answers about InTO

1Who is the inTO service for and how does it work?

The service is dedicated to citizens who use the public transport provided by the Turin metro.
InTO is a system comprised of two main components: very advanced software, which calculates the percentage of passengers present on a railcar, and LED lights installed at the Re Umberto stop, which help passengers find the railcars with the most room.
InTO receives information gathered by surveillance cameras (but without storing any images) and uses an algorithm to calculate how full each railcar is.
In addition, on the basis of archived data and data collected in real time, InTO is able to predict how many passengers will get off at the Re Umberto stop.
The algorithm constantly updates this information by means of machine learning to perfect the final outcome.

2How can persons who have visual impairments make use of the service?

When it comes to Smart Cities topics, we work to make all solutions highly inclusive: this means allowing everyone to use them, regardless of age, gender or disability.
Over the first phase of the experiment we will receive reports and suggestions from users, which will be analysed to determine whether this is the most suitable solution and what improvements could be made.

3Why did you decide on Turin?

The City of Turin has created the Torino City Lab programme (more information here: https://www.torinocitylab.it/it/), Italdesign is participating in through this experiment.
Turin has opened up the entire city for testing cutting-edge innovations, making its physical infrastructure, technology, relations and know how available for testing and then scaling proposed innovations.

5Does the system track my movements? Is my privacy protected?

The system does not record people or faces, it is limited to the real time calculation of the number of people present on a given railcar. The algorithms used carry out these calculations with complete respect for the citizen's privacy.
The sole purpose of the surveillance cameras is to protect citizens and guarantee their safety.

7Who is the historical figure featured in the video?

The person featured in the video is Pietro Micca. It's a tribute to a figure that is cherished by the city that backed the testing of this new technology.
