Bike Detection for London Midland trains

Bike Detection for London Midland trains

Cyclepods have recently completed a project with train operating company, London Midland. This involved the provision of 470 new cycle parking spaces at 6 stations in a limited timescale. These stations were; Watford Junction, Northampton, Bletchley, Walsall and Alvechurch.

London Midland opted for the CapaCITY two-tier system as Northampton and Bletchley both had limited space. Cycle parking increased from 58 to 96 at Bletchley and from 85 to 160 at Northampton.

There were derelict or redundant areas at three stations, Watford Junction, Walsall and Alvechurch, so by clearing these areas and prepping with extensive groundworks, fresh spaces were created for the new cycle storage.

London Midland also requested a brand new accompanying feature for four of their stations. Watford Junction, Northampton, Walsall and Bletchley has Cyclepod's Bike Detection system installed.

They chose optical sensors for their racks, consisting of two 3D cameras, each monitoring a section of the racks (around 5-25 spaces). The cameras can then determine occupied vs. free spaces in the racks and feeds this back to a local facility server, meaning real-time occupancy is available.
