Evaluation of a quaternary ammonium compound based antimicrobial coating in public transport during the COVID-19 pandemic

We investigate the efficacy of anti-microbial coatings trialled by the rail industry during the COVID-19 Pandemic using the viral surrogate Phi6.

Modeling disease transmission in a train carriage using a simple 1D-model

We propose a new one-dimensional (1D) model that predicts the longitudinal dispersion of airborne contaminants and the risk of disease transmission inside a railway carriage

Modeling the factors that influence exposure to SARS-CoV-2 on a subway train carriage

We propose the Transmission of Virus in Carriages (TVC) model, simulating the potential exposure to SARS-CoV-2 for passengers traveling in a subway rail system train

On the Complexity of Object Detection on Real-World Public Transportation Images for Social Distancing

We investigate the challenges of performing accurate social distance measurement on public transportation. We benchmark several state-of-the-art object detection algorithms using real-world footage taken from the London Underground and bus network.

An Evaluation of the risk of airborne transmission of COVID-19 on an inter-city train carriage

We evaluate the risk of airborne transmission of COVID-19 on a UK inter-city train carriage using in service CO2 measurements, salt aerosol concentrations released within the carriage, CFD models and laboratory tests on HVAC filter material.
