Transport for London – savings, safety and streamlining, all on track

 

Imagine being able to see exactly what’s going on underground, making deep tunnel inspections along a track, quickly and clearly – without putting a boot underground.

In addressing the complexities of managing its expansive underground network, Transport for London (TfL) partnered with Spinview in 2021 to implement a visually intelligent digital twin solution across the Piccadilly Line track, stations, and depots.

The partnership created high-fidelity replicas of physical assets integrated with real-time sensor data and analytics. This centralised, visualised data enables informed decision-making for optimised operations, enhances safety, and supports TfL’s environmental steps towards net zero.

Results Achieved:

  • Operational Savings: External analysis verifies potential reductions of up to 44% in operational expenses (OpEx) and 26% in capital expenditures (CapEx) within the first year of implementation.
  • Supporting Net Zero Targets: The digital twin enables precise carbon emission monitoring, helping TfL work towards achieving its goal of a carbon-neutral public transport system by 2030.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Streamlined processes facilitated by the digital twin optimise maintenance workflows, allowing for proactivity based on real-time sensor data.
  • Improved Safety: Remote inspections and air quality pattern analysis significantly reduce worker exposure to hazards, making deep-tunnel inspections safer and more efficient.

The success of this partnership serves as a foundation for ongoing innovation, with TfL and Spinview exploring ways to expand the use of digital twins across the entire network, further enhancing efficiency, sustainability, and the overall passenger experience.

“Having that visual representation gives the advantage in that you can view everything without having to go down there. We can identify if there are any issues around the areas where we’re working, which is very important from a health and safety point of view. By removing boots from the ground and doing it virtually you are increasing the safety of our staff.”

  – Daniel Rahamim, Lead Innovation Manager – Transport for London

 


 

The Swedish Royal Court – Transforming access and engagement for all

  • Enhanced Accessibility: The use of visual twins broadened the Swedish Royal Court audience, making exhibitions accessible globally. This approach not only engages remote audiences but also helps to increase physical attendance.
  • Intelligence for Curators and Staff: Having a digital copy of exhibitions provided accurate records of exhibition layouts, aiding curators in planning future displays.
  • Educational Impact: The visual twins interactive points provide education to visitors through, engaging audiences pre and post-exhibition.

  • Cost Savings: The combined solution saves businesses £750k annually for line cleaning and prevention of revenue loss due to spoilage, contributing to increased gross profit.

Spinview and DING’s partnership goes beyond traditional beer line cleaning, providing a holistic solution that ensures consistent high-quality draught beer, enhanced security, and significant monthly savings for businesses in the hospitality sector. Now, that’s worth raising a glass to!

“Collaborating with Spinview has been a pivotal moment for Ding, transforming not just our beer line cleaning system but also how we envision the future of beverage quality and service. Spinview’s cutting-edge technology has enabled us to create a digital twin of our cleaning systems in operation, offering an unprecedented level of insight and control over the cleaning process.
