Passenger Information System(PIS)
Trainnet® Mobile Applications allow sending information to mobile devices in the train. Applications range from implementing a mobile Passenger Information System (PIS) to developing a mobile Human-Machine Interface (HMI) for the train crew.
The Trainnet® Mobile Applications are services accessible from mobile devices present in the train such as smartphones and tablets. In practice they are extensions to your Trainnet® TCMS or VCU: information is exchanged between the train computer and the mobile devices via a wireless network (WLAN).
TRAINNET® MOBILE PIS
One application is to provide information to passenger mobile phones and tablets, creating a mobile Passenger Information System (PIS). With the Trainnet® Mobile PIS, passengers can access travel information from their mobile devices by simply connecting to the train W-LAN. Passengers can for instance check the train departure time, the train location, train connections, line maps, train speed or even outside temperature. Safety and traffic announcements can also be displayed in real-time. Additional services such as news, weather forecast, the on-board restaurant menu, city guide, games as well as advertisements can be provided to passengers via this mobile platform.
