21st Century Passenger Systems launches low power passenger info display

21st Century Passenger Systems, part of Journeo, has launched a new real-time passenger information display that can run on a combination of solar and battery power.

The company said the signs can operate between three and seven years, depending on the model, before any maintenance is required.

The low-power displays provide journey information, showing both real time and scheduled data alongside emergency messages. They can connect to 21st Century’s EPI content management system, which is already used by its local transport authority customers.

The signs use e-paper technology to keep power consumption to a minimum. Unlike LCD or LED signage, they do not draw power all the time, just when information is updated.

21st Century Passenger Systems said the new signs can offer a way to deliver real time passenger information to rural or underserved areas at minimum cost.

Russ Singleton, chief executive of Journeo, said: “There is a genuine and strong demand  for transport networks to make sure that all communities can access real time passenger information,  regardless of their location.

“Indeed, the National Bus Strategy for England identifies the provision of  at-stop information as key to giving passengers and potential bus users the confidence to choose  public transport time and time again.”
