Lucid has been commissioned by Network Rail to develop an interactive tool for modelling signaller workload.
The Presto model was developed on behalf of Network Rail by Mott MacDonald. Presto enables a user to model a given section of track with associated train services, and develop a detailed picture of the workload it places upon the signaller.
Lucid will implement an online version of Presto. Results will be displayed graphically and all project information stored in a database. The tool will be added to the existing Ergotools platform for use by Network Rail and its contractors.
