Counting in Vehicles: Passenger Counting Systems and Passenger Counters
Infodev's passenger counting equipment and other products for the transit industry can be divided in 4 categories:
DATA ACQUISITION: DIRECTIONAL COUNTERS & ACCESSORIES
DM-20 Multiple sensor bar
When working with wide doors, we can either use several sensors in an array or install a multiple-sensor bar, which is an elegant aluminium bar that integrated well in the original design of most vehicles.
DATA STORAGE & TRANSFER DEVICES
DATA ANALYSIS SOFTWARE & UTILITIES
The people counting data generated by the on-board microcomputer during the trip can be analysed in many different ways: spreadsheet, plots, graphs.
WebReports is very easy to use, powerful and accurate. Diagnose problems more efficiently by producing data tables, line graphs or even bar graphs comparing different stops, routes or time periods.
INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITS)
Automatic Passenger Counting System (APC)
Directional passenger counting is Infodev's speciality. We installed our first directional counting system in a bus in 1995. Since then, we have refined and improved our counting system to provide counting accuracy above 95%, usually reaching 97-98%!
Traffic Light Priority System
Infodev's traffic light priority system is different from other such systems in that it uses a distributed architecture that requires no human intervention. Our sophisticated data acquisition systems know when to require a lengthening of the green light.
Infodev's integrated systems can be connected to many parameters in your vehicles. By monitoring these parameters, it becomes easier to single out vehicles that need maintenance and those that can wait.
Infodev's schedule adherence system helps you identify problem areas, both in lead and lag times, so you can either adjust the schedules or optimize the routes.
Indoors Vehicle Localization
With Infodev's indoors vehicle location system, the driver parks his/her vehicle and simply walks away. The next day, the driver keys in the vehicle number and sees where it is on a representation of your garage or depot.
Video Event Recording
This compact digital video camera is a great complement to Infodev's APC system. Controlled by our on-board computer, it can have many uses.
Automated Voice Announcement
This automated voice announcement lets you communicate with your passengers without distracting the vehicle's operator. You can use it for next stop announcements, general or even promotional announcements.
