Fast-Response management and display of information for metro lines based on Earth observation principles

Control of Earth observation missions such as Envisat, ALOS, CryoSat and GOCE is enabled by the visualisation of complex, high-throughput information. A company called DEIMOS Space has applied the same visualisation technique to the control of Europe’s longest, deepest subway line: Barcelona’s driverless Line 9 is 47.837 km in length with 53 stations. The ALHAMBRA Information System helps manage and display the information coming from traffic, and general corporate information, incidents and emergencies, monitor hallways and platforms, in panels on the doors of the platform and the information panels of the trains.
