BRAUNSCHWEIG PURCHASES TELESTE PASSENGER INFORMATION SYSTEM
Finish Teleste Corporation received an order for delivery of a passenger information system and information display deployment from Braunschweig Transit Authority (Regionalverband Großraum Braunschweig) in Germany together with the company’s local subsidiary iqu Systems. The order includes harnessing the entire tram network and selected bus stops in the city of Braunschweig with 243 monochrome LED displays as well as Teleste’s passenger information system for their management.
The project will be completed by March 2022 and includes stops to be equipped with text-to-speech buttons and loudspeakers announcing the displayed information for visually impaired passengers. The system allows Braunschweig Transit Authority to manage all the 243 displays within the deployment with a web-based user interface including functionality such as status check-ups, configuration and operational management. The system will also provide the necessary interfaces to the real-time database of Braunschweig Transit Authority and the state-wide database of Lower Saxony. According to Teleste because of this integration the system provides the passengers in Braunschweig with accurate and up-to-date information related to their journeys, while also providing the operator a tool to manage the information and daily operations. Teleste mentions the passenger information system includes versatile modules designed for the management of passenger information, media content, displays and fleets across public transport systems of various sizes and demands.
