THE TECHNOLOGY IS NOW READY FOR COMMERCIALIZATION AND IMPLEMENTATION IN STATIONS WITH ALSTOM’S SECURITY AND INFORMATION SYSTEM.
As part of the company’s global innovation strategy, an Alstom Security team in Madrid has developed an Inclusive Passenger Information System (iPIS) solution to improve the travel experience for all users.
The iPIS (Inclusive Passenger Information System) project has integrated Navilens, an application that allows users to be guided in public spaces and provides real-time traffic information by scanning its ddtags codes. These codes can be registered by a cell phone from a great distance and different angles, allowing users to walk through the station with the certainty that their device will capture the code and receive the available information.
Incorporated into Alstom’s security system, the codes are digitally integrated into the display and are displayed only when the user enters the station and needs the codes. The reading of the code triggers a protocol that makes it possible to articulate truly adapted security systems, where the passenger is at the center of all actions. It can be established that, if a passenger registers the station entrance code, ddtags codes automatically appear on all screens with the most up-to-date information; cameras near the code are displayed in the control center to track the transit, and the station and train team is informed to give any kind of assistance to the user.
The technology is now ready for commercialization and implementation in stations with Alstom’s security and information system.
