The new generation of control rooms

(ST Lazare station operations centre – Paris)

This key rail traffic hub handles 100 million passengers per year! The station’s operations centre has multiple missions: traffic management, passenger information display, agent supervision, etc. from 32 real-time sources, including surveillance cameras, train positions, info on the metro, suburban and regional lines, etc.

In addition to the obvious reliability requirements, it’s user-friendliness that now characterises this new generation of control rooms at national rail operator SNCF.
