How to improve public transport with better vehicle connectivity

Watch this webinar, in partnership with Digi International and Genetec, to hear speakers discuss how routing, scheduling, fuel efficiency and passenger experience can all be improved with the latest IoT solutions.

Watch this webinar to hear speakers discuss how routing, scheduling, fuel efficiency, and passenger experience on public transport can all be improved with the latest IoT solutions. You will hear about how Genetec and Digi International worked with the Chicago Transit Authority to develop an innovative passenger-counting pilot project that analyses vehicle occupancy in real-time, in order to ensure the most efficient and reliable service with shorter wait times.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Vehicle connectivity benefits for real-time monitoring of transit fleets
  • How to analyse occupancy data to create projection models for better transit demand management
  • Wireless solutions that enable you to track vehicle locations and occupancy levels, and improve passenger safety with onboard video monitoring
  • How modern cellular solutions offer major improvements in uplink speed and data throughput.

In addition, you’ll hear how you can securely configure, monitor and manage the devices in your wireless network with the cloud-based Digi Remote Manager®.
