Abstract: This dissertation will study if existing MRT platforms can provide the necessary physiological comfort for commuters at different time of the day. This includes both weekdays and weekends. It aims to discover the conditions of selected train platforms by investigating parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, and light level. Existing international or local standards and guidelines will be used to assess the findings from the IoT based sensor. These objective findings will be consulted with subjective findings from survey questionnaires. Practical ways to improve commuter comfort will be recommended based on issues identified from the results. This study will test hypotheses that benchmark indoor platform conditions at 24.0 ± 1.5 °C, and relative humidity at 60 ± 10%. Varying standards for indoor light level during peak and non-peak periods will also be benchmarked at 200 and 100 lux respectively. This study also looks into the relationship between temperature and relative humidity, and the current light levels of outdoor platforms. Through extensive data collection over a period of two months, and conducting of analysis to draw conclusions from the data, key issues are identified. East West Line platforms have the warmest temperature. The light level on Paya Lebar and Lavender platforms was found to be insufficient. With these issues, recommendations with its impacts are proposed. With five MRT lines in operation, the number of platforms that can be studied is extensive. Hence, this dissertation will only investigate the conditions of MRT platforms in the Eastern part of Singapore.
