Ericsson connected stop solution includes screens with information in real time on the movement of buses, tactile displays with access to interactive maps, local news, information and advertising; (e) incorporates a CCTV camera and functions that increase the safety of travellers.
At the Congress of the UITP (International Organisation for Public Transport), event of public transport taking place in Milan, Ericsson It has come with a new concept for bus stops, which combines connectivity with the optimization to provide a better information service to the traveller.
Ericsson proposes a system that incorporates WiFi or 3G technology, LTE small cell. The infrastructure of small cell of the stop will offer public transport operators an additional revenue source, since you can assign operators of mobile telecommunications as a means to densify their networks.
In addition to the conventional uses of mobile broadband, connected bus stop will offer features particularly useful for travellers as screens with information in real time on the movement of buses, touch screens with access to maps Interactive, local news, tourist information and advertising.
In addition, allows you to incorporate a closed circuit television camera, an emergency stop button and the function 'push to talk' to increase security and to facilitate travellers are put into contact with the police or emergency services.
In urban environments such as shopping areas, business, leisure or financial capacity is quite limited and many networks can not provide high download speeds. The connected bus station, a Small Cell offering application as Ericsson's service launched in 2014, solves this problem by creating a network of small individual cell that is integrated with the transmission of telecommunications operators networks.
In addition to the connected bus stop, Ericsson also as is exhibiting at the UITP Congress other solutions that improve the connectivity as Small Cell service that is a way to increase and share the capacity of networks in environments where it is not feasible add macro cells to the networks of the operators; or Connected Traffic Cloud, a cloud concept managed allowing to share traffic data in real time and conditions of the road between connected vehicle and traffic authorities.
In addition, it is also showing the concept of mobility as a service that provides multimodal transportation, in which you can combine different means of private and public transport and where electronic tickets can be stored on the smartphone.
