Protecting Passenger Information Display
A passenger information display is essential to provide valuable information on railway, tube and subway delay, changes or problems, so protection is essential to ensure maximum uptime.
Passenger Information Display
These passenger information displays are used in some very unusual situations from airports, railway stations and even in the rear of taxi cabs. The common reason for using a passenger information display is to provide the passengers with both information and also displaying adverts that may be targeted to the traveller. These are sometimes connected to network enabled media players to that the content can be updated from one central location.
A typical passenger information display solution
An in cab passenger information display is located between the front seats and the content is updated using a 3G wireless networked media player, this can also be used to highlight advertisers ads in specific geographic locations. This way passengers who have just arrived from a lengthy flight can see restaurants on their way to their hotel.

Now here this solution is used to provide a term called time warping, whilst passengers are waiting for the train, making the time they actually wait appear to be less than it actually is. Keeping the passengers informed of delays and cancellations and changes to their schedule. These solutions are controlled through a media player, this is usually a network enabled solution so all the screens can be updated in synchronization, so both ads and information are updated quickly and efficiently. The only challenge to any location that is not using either GPS or 3G networks is how they will install the network cabling for the passenger information display solution with minimal disruption to passengers.
