Big Brother really is watching you!

AI is finding applications in so many sectors, including the transport sector. 

It was interesting to read from The Engineer how it is being used to count passengers on rail services in Merseyside. By establishing accurate passenger numbers on the various services they provide, Northern believe they will be better placed to schedule their trains around the region, alongside improving passenger safety and time efficiencies.
