Passenger information systems


Ruf Telematik is presenting a World Premiere in Berlin

The 18th international trade fair for transport technology InnoTrans 2018 will start in 11 days. Ruf Telematik will be presenting a World Premiere at stand 403 in hall 2.1.

Ruf Telematik presents the latest version of its passenger information system: VisiWeb neo. Engineered in Switzerland, this modular and scalable ICT solution for public transport was designed specifically to meet the increasing requirements of rail manufacturers and operators for dynamic passenger information.

Unlike autonomous passenger information systems, VisiWeb neo features bidirectional outward-facing interfaces. This modern ICT system integrates seamlessly into the landside and exchanges real-time information between the control center and the vehicles. In the event of problems or diversions, the control center can send both acoustic and visual information directly to passengers and in return is able to collate passenger counting data from vehicles.

VisiWeb neo

VisiWeb neo operates as a complete system for rail vehicles in public transport. It provides information management for the operator, the passengers and the train crew.

VisiWeb neo provides:

  • Visual and acoustic passenger information
  • Infotainment
  • Video Surveillance and Monitoring
  • Passenger Communication and Emergency call
  • Data Management
  • Landside Integration
World Premiere – Controlling passenger information system via smartphone app

The train crew can easily operate the VisiWeb neo passenger information system using a smartphone app. The app supports multiple useful functions. Train attendants can record live announcements for playback in passenger compartments or via outside loudspeakers. Prerecorded special messages, e.g., “Please release the doors” can be selected easily and output immediately in acoustic and visual format. Messages can even be input as free text for direct and traction-specific publication on displays inside and outside of the vehicle. The app also features an alarm and diagnostics function to report various events including the activation of the SOS button at an emergency intercom station.
