Our company implements embedded solutions since 2003. One of the big hardware projects was "Passenger Information Display" – device based on PIC-microcontrollers from Microchip Technoly Inc. For last year these Displays were installed for many customers in Western Europe, mostly in Austria. The product is intended for installation at railway stations, bus terminals, vehicles, etc. The Display may work in online and offline modes. In first case Display is connected to the "Passenger Information System" server via LAN, wireless GSM network or serial cable. Online connection allows showing train prediction time or train delays for the passengers. Train dispatcher can send also custom text announcements or informational creeping lines from control center. In offline mode Display works autonomous; it allows to store the timetable for a long period (some years) inside its internal flash memory.
This project was implemented in cooperation with Siemens AG company.
