Passenger information system
With R2P’s comfortable information system you can offer your passengers dedicated information and advertising. This makes public transport more attractive to potential customers and you can benefit from advertising revenue.
Latest news, route details, departure times or position-related advertising can be displayed on modern TFT screens. Having your own WLAN hotspot and your own FM frequency for transmitting audio data will provide an even better service for your passengers.
Fleet data management system
R2P’s fleet management system is one of the most modern and comprehensive systems on the market for managing and analysing data centrally from an operations centre.
The R2P fleet management system makes it possible to evaluate video footage, passenger counting, vehicle and consumption data in real-time. This means you can transmit video and audio signals to an emergency dispatch centre within a few seconds so the criminal can be arrested at the next stop.
Software updates, passenger counting data, video configuration, route information and advertising messages can be automatically transmitted to the entire fleet in real-time. GPS tracking means you can keep an eye on all of your vehicles.
An intelligent map system gives you a clear overview of all the relevant incidents, such as delays, overcrowding, alarma, error reports or maintenance appointments.
The benefits of the fleet data management system include:
- Real-time video management
- Central configuration
- Live fleet tracking
- Evaluation of vehicle data
- Remote vehicle diagnosis
