Automatic Passenger Counting

Capturing, transmitting and analyzing passenger counting and trip data

DILAX passenger counting systems enable transport companies to centrally capture and manage a wide range of data. In addition to passenger counting data, an on-board DILAX People Counting Unit (PCU) captures trip data and transmits it in real time.

Our automatic passenger counting systems follow a modular approach and can be used autonomously as well as being integrated into existing system structures. The master/client architecture allows for complete customization to client- and project-specific requirements.

Our highly flexible system solution does not only include the tried and tested DILAX sensor technology and the DILAX People Counting Unit (PCU) but is also completed by system cables and additional components.

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

Passenger counting and trip data are transmitted landside via existing on-board routers or via the DILAX PCU. There are various GSM radio technologies as well as wireless LAN available for the event-based or time-controlled transmission of data.

System integration

DILAX automatic passenger counting systems can be fully integrated into the existing IT infrastructure via serial interfaces or Ethernet. With the DILAX Counting Protocol (DCP), we offer an open interface for communicating with on-board vehicle systems. Thanks to the systems’ high level of flexibility and its easy integrability, our passenger counting systems can be installed in new as well as existing vehicles.
