TFT displays for the Lyon underground

Thanks to train-stop TFT displays, the Lyon subway users know when the next train is going to arrive.


The French company SYTRAL (Syndicat Mixte des Transports pour le Rhône et l'Agglomération Lyonnaise) has chosen Solari di Udine’s system to distribute information regarding the underground service.


SYTRAL, whose main objective is to improve the movement and quality of life of the citizens of the Lyon district, has decided to adopt TFT displays to update subway passengers regarding the waiting times for the next train.


The supply includes 50 TFT displays of various sizes (both 23” and 32” displays are used, based on the requirements and space available) for outdoor use, all of which communicate with the central system via GPRS or via an Ethernet.


The choice was made based on the need to reduce maintenance costs of the system. This goal was reached thanks to the ability to constantly monitor the various devices remotely. Another requirement was the need to guarantee the effectiveness and endurance of the solution, and of all of its components, even in difficult environmental conditions.


The use of TFT displays, thanks to their architecture, allows for excellent legibility of information without forgetting safety (multilayered frontal protective glass) as well as robustness (stainless steel housing).

Displayed information regarding the trains in transit at the stop/station, with the type of train and waiting time highlighted for the first available train and the following, offer users complete information that allows them to organize their movements in an optimal way in accordance with waiting times.
