Passenger Information Systems for Public Transport Applications
LANCom is a leading provider of systems integration, business informatics and passenger information system (PIS) software for transport users.
LANCom PIS© is designed to provide the latest train, bus, metro and tram times for passengers using public transport. It also supplies information about delays, cancellations and other events in a clear and straightforward manner, enabling more effective travel planning.
Passenger information systems for the transport industry
LANCom PIS increases overall passenger comfort and their level of satisfaction with the service provider, improving the chance of them opting for the same services again.
The system receives all the relevant information about individual rides from the selected vehicles. In most cases, it is connected to signal devices on the railway lines or with GPS position inputs from the vehicles.
This connectivity enables a dynamic calculation of actual delays and advanced anticipation of arrivals at each station. Unforeseen events (cancellations, re-routing, obstructions, etc.) are entered and managed via a central web interface. Otherwise, the system can be automatically operated.
Video and audio passenger notifications
LANCom’s PIS displays important travel information on robust screens. All units can be positioned out in the open and at different locations such as waiting rooms, underpasses, halls and vehicles.
The system supports pre-recorded audio files, text-to-speech audio generation or a combination of both in various languages. Automatic audio notifications are then generated and played in selected zones and times.
The audio and video information is always in-sync, irrespective of potential delays or obstructions.
