Key points of the project
Real-time information for bus passengers.
Thanks to our long years of experience in supplying passenger information systems, Sycube can integrate multiple information sources into the display system (including route progress, stops, final stops and route number).
Integration of internal bus data (stop request)
Connections are displayed using external data sources. Data is transferred in real time - changes and delays are visible immediately.
Real-time acknowledgement of delays
Likewise, there is a connection to the internal signal system of the bus. This allows a passenger stop request to be displayed. Any delays are incorporated into the passenger information system in real time.
Integrated connection securing
As soon as an unforeseen delay arises on the transport network, the driver has two ways to react: 1. If the driver waits, then connection is maintained. The vehicle departs at a later point, which can in turn lead to connection problems at subsequent stops. 2. If the driver does not wait, the vehicle departs on time and some passengers miss the connection. The entire system is optimised using mathematical optimisation algorithms.
The integrated system was very well received by passengers, particularly highlighting the real-time integration of connections. Due to this very positive feedback, development has been accelerated.
