Intelligent Platform Clock fits platform of the future
Conclusion ForeyeT is building the platform of the future at RailTech. The Intelligent Platform Clock (IPC) is one of the latest cutting-edge innovation that will be shown.
Intelligent Platform Clock
The Intelligent Platform Clock (IPC) transforms legacy and new platform clocks into complete travel information systems. The IPC is also known as the ‘countdown clock’ and indicates the planned departure time of the next train and will inform passengers about possible delays. The IPC increases passenger satisfaction by keeping them up-to-date.
Energy-efficient and maintenance-friendly
The time display in the IPC consists of energy-efficient RGB colour leds that have full redundancy. lt is also a maintenance-friendly system: each led indicates how well it is doing. lf the led needs to be replaced at short notice, the technical department will already be notified. This self-diagnosis reduces maintenance time and costs.
Researched by Rover
Dutch travellers association Rover sees the IPC as a positive development. Rover conducted research and concludes that the IPC meets the passengers need of accurate and easy to understand information about waiting times and delays. “The IPC shows passengers at a glance in how much time the next train will leave without needing to calculate.”
More innovations at RailTech
Conclusion ForeyeT has developed multiple cutting-edge innovations in addition to the IPC. All will be shown at RailTech Europe 2019.
