TAM (Transports de l'Agglomeration de Montpellier), a French company that currently handles public transportation for the city of Montpellier and the surrounding area, has adopted Solari di Udine’s solution to computerize the public transportation network.

 

Over 300 LCD displays, distributed along the various bus lines, inform citizens regarding the arrival times of the next buses. They communicate with the central system via GPRS and can be powered in various ways, from solar panels that take advantage of solar energy, to the electrical power grid which is used during the night for street lighting, so as to optimize energy consumption and therefore reduce system costs.

The central software, capable of monitoring all devices in real-time,represents another element that allows the reduction of system management costs by limiting maintenance interventions to only those cases for which it is absolutely necessary.

 

In creating the T3 line, the company wished to offer its users a new service by making it easier to use public transportation and providing arrival information regarding the next trolley car in real-time.

All of this was done while still keeping system maintenance costs low and being able to monitor the entire system so that any malfunctions may be highlighted immediately.

 

About a hundred permanently powered LED displays represent the hardware side of the system, along a front-end software that communicates with the devices, as well as with a software application for monitoring the system, based on the SNMP standard used for managing a high number of peripheral devices.

 

The choice of LED displays has guaranteed outstanding performance, excellent legibility even in difficult environmental conditions (low ambient light) as well as reduced power consumption.
