Passenger Information & Video Security

Information to keep you moving

Our comprehensive passenger information and video-security solutions cover the entire passenger journey, from boarding and departure to on-board entertainment, simplifying and improving the travel experience.

Digital and electronic solutions for rail need to address two key passenger needs. First, accustomed to the immediacy of social media, passengers now expect to be informed of delays, traffic interruptions, and timetable changes as they happen. Trains therefore require systems capable of providing real-time information. Second, passenger security is of the utmost importance. To keep passengers safe, trains need to transmit security-related information to control centers in real time, enabling on-site and off-site teams to react quickly and efficiently.?? ?
