A Solution for Integrators

GW-200 Communication Gateway

The GW-200 is Infodev's passenger counting solution for integrators.

The Communication Gateway is the communication link between the DA-200 autonomous sensor and the third party on-board computer. It responds only to the commands from the on-board computer. For example, the Communication Gateway will start counting when the onboard computer commands it to count.

One of the main objectives of the GW-200 is to simplify and minimize the cost of installation. The DA-200 and GW-200’s unique networking architecture not only speeds up installation but greatly reduces the amount of cabling necessary.


  • May be connected to up to 12 sensors and 4 other signal sources from the vehicle, such as door switches.
  • The GW-200 requires no interface with the door switch, odometer or with any other parameter.
  • Diagnostic lights permit testing major functions.
  • The memory can hold up to 8 days of data, depending on the number of routes driven.
  • The GW-200’s rugged design resists the harsh environmental conditions often found in public transit vehicles.
  • Data is safely stored permanently in flash memory.
  • The interface is transparent to the on board host computer.


The Communication Gateway is connected to autonomous counting sensors. It receives commands from the on-board computer to start counting passengers, stop counting passengers, transfer the count data and delete the counts.
