Infotin

December 18 | Posted by admin | Uncategorized

INFOTIN is a travel information system used in local and regional transportation by Connexxion subsidiary and Hermes .
The system Hermes was first used as a pilot in Sittard in the summer of 2005. This was surprising, since it was deployed in rural areas and not in the usual big cities. The idea behind this is that the very people in rural areas need to travel, because the frequency is low and one can see or bus (too early) left. On INFOTIN sees the traveler to the minute what time the next bus (es) to the bus departs.
Rollout
• The pilot was in the summer of 2005 in the region of Sittard launched by Hermes. The system is again removed after the concession Hermes Limburg had lost the benefit of Veolia .
• With the entrance of the new concession in the SRE on December 14, 2008, all bus stops in the area where buses run a INFOTIN Hermes. (Except the beginning and end stops)
• In Almere, in 2008, a number of stops with INFOTIN equipped and since 2009 they can also be found in Leeuwarden.
Operation
The system operates on a lasting battery and the screen is made of LCD . The system over the existing (legal accredited) eels bush poles are clamped in progress, making it relatively cheap.
The bus in the area where the INFOTIN used is equipped with GPS and a GSM transmitter. Every 30 seconds a message is sent to the traffic and sends the message, which contain the line number, departure date, carrier and any additional text, back to the INFOTIN.
Messages are sent via the DARC protocol by the frequency of Radio 4 . Because the signal of Radio 4 in Eindhoven highly irregular and was disturbed by other radio stations, travel information is incomplete and INFOTIN stood at 90% of the locations. Using a different frequency (eg via BBC News ) tested whether the system worked. During 2010 the INFOTIN back into operation.
