Automatic Passenger Counting

Capturing, Transmitting and Analyzing Passenger Counting and Trip Data

DILAX APC systems offer sophisticated options for capturing, transmitting and evaluating business-critical data. In addition to passenger counting data, an on-board DILAX system computer collects trip data and transmits it to an on-board or landside system.


Our systems follow a modular approach and can be operated autonomously as well as being integrated into existing system structures. The master / client architecture allows for complete customization to client- and project-specific requirements. In addition to components for capturing counting data, DILAX offers its customers complete technical turnkey solutions suitable for subsequent installation, implementation of refurbishment projects and installation in new vehicles at the factory.

The DILAX passenger counting systems quickly provide all stakeholders with the relevant information and can thus be optimally integrated into the daily operations of the organization. Additionally, GPS and vehicle data as well as data from third party systems can be transmitted.

 

Reliable Data Transmission

Sensors are developed by DILAX and well-established on the market. They are discreetly placed in the door areas of the vehicle and send the measuring results to a PCU (People Counting Unit) that can also collect data from higher-level systems. The information sources are connected via existing networks in the vehicle.

Secure Data Transmission

The data is transmitted from the vehicle via an existing on-board communications unit (router) or a DILAX component (PCU). GSM, UMTS as well as Wi-Fi functions are available for this.

Solutions for Challenges in Train Operations

People counting in trains includes the following special daily tasks:

  • Connecting and disconnecting trains during a journey
  • Combining cars with and without passenger counting system
  • Deploying first and second class cars or separated compartments within cars.

All these aspects are taken into account and supported in DILAX products. This includes the technical components in the vehicles as well as the software functions displaying daily train operations.

Integration in Vehicle Systems

Various interfaces allow DILAX systems to be completely integrated in existing vehicle systems. With the DILAX Counting Protocol (DCP), DILAX offers an open interface for communicating with on-board systems. It supports the ITCS connection to well-known manufacturers and established interfaces to vehicle manufacturers’ communication platforms.

Standards and Conformity

DILAX is certified according to the quality management standards ISO 9001 and the International Railway Industry Standards (IRIS). DILAX systems are compliant with the following standards (among others) and can thus be used for all types of vehicles such as buses, trams, ferries, metros and trains:

  • CE, RoHS, e1
  • EN 50155, EN 50121
  • EN 50126 (RAMS / LCC)
  • EN 50128 (safety-relevant software for train applications)
  • EN 62402 (obsolescence management)
  • Fire protection (depending on the model): NFF 16 101, DIN 5510-2, EN 45545, UNI CEI 11170, BS 6853, NFPA 130, R118

Effective Evaluation

With a sophisticated data management solution, data captured in the vehicle can be verified, processed and aggregated as information and knowledge. With DILAX Citisense we offer our own solution: modular and customizable.

DILAX Citisense

Data Management & Predictive Analytics

DILAX Citisense is a new generation of software that enables transport companies and transport planners to manage, aggregate and evaluate a variety of data in addition to classic passenger counting numbers. Complex algorithms recognize and analyze relationships between data from heterogeneous sources. Thanks to DILAX Citisense, critical traffic events are detected early on, allowing for correct decisions in mobility planning. Role-based dashboards provide individual information at a glance. The software is modular and can be customized to clients’ needs.

With DILAX Citisense, data is turned into knowledge. Knowledge that helps transport companies and transport planners face the complex and changing demands on their mobility services: today, tomorrow and in the future.
