Public Transport Systems

Problem/Challenge

 

A rising number of public transport vehicles have been equipped with network connectivity. Hence, chauffeurs or passengers have access to real-time information in order to settle ticket sales and corresponding transactions, to trace the current location or condition of vehicles, to use the video surveillance "life" or to provide passengers with internet access. The management, monitoring and controlling of a great number of vehicles such as tramways, buses or trains are definitely a big challenge for the IT department within a public transport company. For safety and availability reasons, many companies tend to build in individual communication equipment for each application. However, rising cost pressures require the exploitation of synergies among the institutions.
