Many public transport operators in the United Kingdom want to expand their dynamic passenger information systems. And more and more operators are placing their trust in real-time solutions from Luminator. As a full-service provider, Luminator has combined high-quality hardware with software for the calculation of real-time information, together with simple management and configuration tools. In close cooperation with bus manufacturers and transport companies they produce efficient, dynamic passenger information systems with comprehensive service.
The first to take advantage of this was Harrogate: since November 2020 all real-time data runs through a dedicated data hub in the cloud. Second-precise, real-time info is calculated from GPS data from the vehicles’ display control system together with data from the timetables. Only in this way can accurate, consistent real-time information be displayed to passengers on all devices. The functionality is monitored by means of software-as-a-service solutions, enabling improvements as needed. Continuous remote integration tests supplement Luminator service for quality assurance of the real-time system.
Harrogate has expressed its satisfaction with our end-to-end solution, and word has spread in the British Isles. Today, over 200 buses equipped with Luminator hard- and software are operating for Transdev, McGills, Brighton, Llew, Blackpool and GO North East. Our realtime systems for e-buses and solar powered e-paper displays at stations are in particularly high demand.
