Simpleway Passenger Information System for Trains, Metro and Public Transportation
Simpleway Europe is a worldwide provider of passenger information systems and software ideal for railroads, in docks or within public transport networks.
The company’s unified information platform processes up-to-date data and passes it on to passengers through audio messages, screens, LED panels, information booths, mobile phones, websites, and social media.
Geolocation data processing for rail scheduling applications
The Simpleway System receives and interconnects data provided by a wide range of operators.
It routinely processes geolocation data for determining the location of individual vehicles, schedule information and the transport network state, as well as up-to-date routing.
The system also works with data from all information distribution devices, such as radio systems, screens, LED panels, and interactive booths.
The Simpleway System aims to process the input data, analyse it and automatically create announcements, ensuring that all devices connected to the system are monitored.
Passenger experience development
Passengers and citizens appreciate an enhanced travel experience, using real-time, up-to-date information via all communication channels such as:
- Audio and visual announcements at stations, on-board and in other public areas
- Mobile applications of cities and regions, carriers or stops, stations and airports
- Websites and social media connected to the software
The Simpleway System features methods of controlling and managing the travel experience of passengers. For greater comfort, it is possible to use one or more information channels, defining a unique way of information presentation for each channel used.
The assigner can decide the type of channels and the way the information is presented, as well as changing the information without the need to adjust the system core.
