“If I take car number 4, can I sit down?” A prophecy about an empty subway seat… that’s interesting

 “There are really 5 people waking up at Ichon Station.”

At around 8:30 a.m. on the 11th. Ichon Station, Subway Line 4, Car 4. When we arrived at the station, 5 people got off, leaving 2 empty seats. The sea I expected. This is because I heard a prophecy that if you ride subway car 4, there will be an empty seat at Ichon Station. An app has even been released that uses artificial intelligence ( AI

) to find empty subway seats . I actually used this app during rush hour.

The boarding station was Deungchon Station on Line 9, and the exit station was Seoul Station on Line 4. On the infamous Line 9, the app for finding empty subway seats during rush hour was virtually useless. Passengers were standing in two or three rows, making it difficult to access the seats.

The transfer station is Dongjak Station. On Line 4 trains, people checked the crowding level of each compartment in advance before boarding to take a seat. Cars 3 and 10 appeared to be the least crowded, but as expected, there were no empty seats.

I didn’t give up as there were only 5 stations left to get off. By additionally entering the train’s unique number and seat, you could check the number of vacant seats at the current location and which compartments would have the most empty seats.

The next station, Ichon Station, is where many people get off from cars 2 and 4. The app predicted that one seat would be opened between doors 4-3 and 4-4 in car number 4.

As Ichon Station approached, surprisingly, a total of 5 people stood up from the seats facing each other. The AI ‘s predictions, which were quite similar to reality, were surprising먹튀검증.

Existing users of this app also said, “I use it when I really want to sit down. There were reactions such as “It’s nice to be able to see where you can fill a seat without having to guess,” and “I used it with some doubt, but there were really a lot of people in the crowded section.”

Rush Hour is an application that uses artificial intelligence ( AI ) to determine the level of congestion in the subway and informs users of empty seats in advance. Last June, we launched a seat search service on Subway Line 3 during rush hour (7-10 a.m.) in Seoul, and recently expanded the service to subway lines 2, 4, 7, and 9 and during rush hour (5-8 p.m.).

At the same time, the prediction function has also been strengthened. The Rush Hour app allows you to select whether to board first by entering the line you want to board and the boarding and disembarking station. This is to inform you of the congestion level for each train in advance before boarding the train. This is a result that reflects the opinion that it is not easy to change seats on a crowded train after already boarding.

After boarding, if you select the train’s unique number and location, a specific prediction service is provided as to which station, car, and seat will be available until the disembarkation station. A notification function has also been added for stations and compartments where there will be a lot of seats available before the user presses the ‘I am seated’ button.

In addition, it also provides real-time subway information, including protests in the subway and stations without stopping.

Hong Joo-young, CEO of Rush Hour, explained, “Users’ satisfaction is high by predicting congestion before boarding. By delivering real-time breaking news about protests in the subway or nearby events, users can use the subway more safely and comfortably.”
