TfL testing new display screens in buses

June 22, 2014
By Ian Mansfield

Double decker buses are starting to get intelligent. They know how many people are upstairs, and which seats they are sitting on. And soon they will start telling you.

Nope, not an Orwellian vision of tracking your movements, but a very practical tool that is just about to go into trial on some of London’s buses.

A new display screen has been installed on a bus, next to the driver where people board the bus, and on the staircase — and it shows in fairly clear graphics, exactly what the availability of seating upstairs is like.

No. It doesn't use sensors in the seat. It uses the CCTV feed to work out which seats are empty so unless it was a huge person-shaped bag it should be fine.
