Public transportation has always been a convenient method of travel. Many people rely on buses for instance, to get to work, school or other destinations on their schedules. Buses are often taken for granted, because of the efficiency and simplicity of their routes on a daily basis. However, though they offer an incredible amount of convenience and comfort, they are not always on time or offer more than just a ride. The latest digitized systems that are now being implemented in public transportation vehicles will take ease-of-use to another level. Passengers will now be able to access instantaneous times of buses, watch news and have a more interactive experience.

Maintenance Center:

Because so many people use public transportation such as the bus, it is crucial to maintain buses regularly. In fact, wheel alignment is one of the key factors to sustain road safety. The purpose of wheel alignment is to lessen tire wear, as well as to keep the suspension in good working conditions. The rugged hand held tablet, RTC-1000A, is the perfect solution to evaluate tire irregularities. As the bus parks for a wheel alignment, clamps are fixed onto each tire, while optical reflective plates and sensors are installed after to get a good reading. These sensors will then submit data to the RTC-1000A via Bluetooth™, so the maintenance operators can get the tire angles and alignment readings. The RTC-1000A enables operators to slide under the bus or walk around its perimeters to check and adjust for any misalignment. Afterwards, the technician can send information/data to the printer for a print out via Bluetooth™ or simply transmit and store it through wireless internet.

Next Bus:

Bus stops nowadays have upgraded to a more sophisticated version of digitalization. The "Next Bus" system pinpoints exactly when the next bus is coming, so passengers don't wait mindlessly. AAEON's Embedded Controller, AEV-6312, uses its GPS module to track the bus location, and transmits data for the buses' position through its 3G module to the Control Room.

Control Room:

Buses' facilities are monitored in Control Rooms, which are the center of bus operations. As the pinnacle of bus functions, the Control Room receives data for buses' positions through 3G. It then transmits this information to the AEC-6611 at the bus stop, where the display at the bus stop shows exactly where the buses are located.

Bus stop:

While passengers can see the times of next buses at bus stops, buses may be delayed in cases of traffic. Thus, for passengers' digitized infotainment while they are waiting, AAEON's ACG-203 is mounted at bus stops. The ACG-203 links its HDMI/VGA/DVI cable to transmit the signal to the network's hub, which transfers the information via RJ-45 to AAEON's ACD-521R.

In-Bus Digital Signage:

Digital Signage has quickly popped up in many buses for the infotainment of passengers. Through the "one-to-multiple" network structure, end users can display the same screen and audio through special digital signage displays. AAEON's Embedded Controller AEC-6872 combined with an industrial monitor is placed on the bus to easily advertise particular commercials, news or information to thousands of passengers.
