Huddersfield Digital Heat Map

Huddersfield

Huddersfield

The Hitachi Digital Heat Map concisely and graphically illustrates infrastructure pinch points and allows for identification and consideration of targeted digital and in some cases, civil improvement options, as illustrated by the Heat Map of Huddersfield station and East / West approaches

The Heat Map view is generated by analysis of data generated in dessan Model and TREsim models, colour coding infrastructure by density of operations indicating dwell timing congestion.  The Heat Map above illustrates timetabled track usage between 0800 and 0900 on a weekday in May 2017 at Huddersfield and highlighted where new or upgraded civil infrastructure could potentially deliver capacity improvements, specifically the introduction of a passing loop to provide flexibility for ETCS and freight moves.
