The software solution features an onboard system designed to detect passenger weight load from the vehicleís braking system and then transmit the information to the passengers waiting at the next stop via a third-party vendor.

 LCD screens at the platform use a series of colors to indicate the capacity of each car: green represents a high probability of available seating, yellow for partially full and red for full.

 The implementation, the first of its kind in Singapore, seeks to better distribute passenger load while also improving the trainsí efficiency and reliability.

The TCMS solution was part of a four-year collaboration between Bombardier and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), which started in 2012, to develop a regional team to enhance software programing capabilities throughout Southeast Asia.
