Seat Management

The  seat management system by DILAX enable transport companies to direct passenger flows at transportation hubs (stops, platforms) as well as in public transport vehicles by guiding passengers directly to freely available or reserved seats during boarding.

They can be easily installed in new vehicles or during vehicle modernization. Just one central DILAX system computer with an interface to the on-board computer is required per car for the operation of the DILAX seat management systems.

Occupancy Detection in Real-Time

Guiding passengers to free seats has been a huge challenge up until now. Passengers often do not see and use free seats that are, for example, hidden by obstacles, far away from the entry and exit areas or in the upper deck of a double-decker coach.


The innovative DILAX approach not only detects the current seat occupancy of every single seat, it also provides the information in real time. The current status of every seat can be displayed in the entry area of the vehicle, in advance at the stop, or on a smartphone app.
