As part of V3's partnership with Cisco in the run-up to the Olympics and Paralympic Games, we interview Transport for London (TFL) director of Games transport Mark Evers, to find out how the London public transport network is being prepared for what could be a 25 per cent increase in customers during this summer's event.
Evers discusses how TFL will be making use of real-time information collected from CCTV cameras, Oyster cards, mobile phones and social networks to give London transport workers the richest data set possible to ensure limited disruptions to trains and bus routes.
This article is part of a special Olympics Technology series, sponsored by Cisco. For more information please follow this link.
