The Modern Public Transportation is Passenger-Aware
Although a self-driving bus or train is still a long way off, there are other approaches to automate public transit. It starts with knowing where passengers are, where they want to go, how much they wait and what they do.
Buses and Trains Need Simple-to-Deploy Sensors
Existing passenger counting solutions are reliant on car power and require a time-consuming and expensive setup. They necessitate professional installation and upkeep.
Eta Compute’s low-cost, battery-operated sensors require no wiring and merely need to be mounted to the car. They are easy to use and require little maintenance.
Public Transportation Require Reliable and Accurate Solutions
Reliability is essential in public transportation. Any flaw causes a chain reaction that affects the entire system. As a result, any component of the system should simply operate.
Intelligent sensors from Eta Compute are dependable and always-on. They’re accurate, thanks to a mix of powerful algorithms, and they use energy-efficient components that don’t need to be cooled.
Some Concrete Use Cases
Transportation Demand Management
Better operation is possible with accurate passenger flow monitoring for each car and bus. Fleet management becomes more precise in order to service the busiest areas at the most convenient times.
Digital Signage at Bus Stops
Aside from the wait time, digital signage can also provide information about how congested a line is and alternative options.
Furthermore, monitoring the passenger traffic in front of the digital sign allows for precise monetization of advertisements.
