ATRON at the IT-TRANS 2022 - ATRON connects
Under the motto “ATRON connects”, at IT-TRANS 2022 the ATRON Group is going to show future-oriented ticketing, a state-of-the-art operations control system with passenger information for every company size as well as a comprehensive depot and fleet.
At booth V4 in the dm-arena, visitors can learn more about how ATRON networks the individual disciplines with one another and integrates third-party solutions without any problems thanks to open interfaces – always keeping the passenger in mind. From March 8th to 10th, 2022 ATRON is going to present future-oriented applications with innovative software solutions at IT-TRANS (Stand V4, dm-arena). In addition to new products for e-ticketing, innovative driver apps and the new fleet operating system in the depot ensure safe and contactless work. In times of Corona in particular, contactless and cashless payment is becoming more and more important. ATRON is taking this trend into account with the completely newly developed cashless ticket machine AFA 150 for the purely cashless purchase of e-tickets and paper tickets. Despite the two integrated printing modules, this extremely lowmaintenance and compact ticket machine is perfect fit for buses and trains. In the stationary version, the AFA 150 can be used as a 24/7 sales channel in customer centers, on platforms or at highly frequented bus stops. The 10-inch display not only enables quick ticket selection, it also serves as a real-time departure display. Tickets are issued electronically (VDV-KA, ATRON Token Ticket, SwissPass) or as a paper ticket. Cashless payment is made possible by an integrated EMV reader, for Europay, Mastercard and Visa, contactless and or contact based.
As an even more compact version, the ATRON validator ACT 420 complements the eticketing portfolio. This solution can be used for entry control as well as for the sale of etickets. The ACT 420 quickly and reliably reads contactless e-ticket cards (VDV-KA, SwissPass, Acount Based Token Ticketing) as well as 2D barcodes on mobile phone apps and paper tickets. E-tickets can be quickly selected and purchased using the touch screen. In the EMV version open/closed loop scenarios or national ticketing systems (e.g. Sweden) can also be integrated.
With the Driver App RX, the ATRON on-board computers transmit the current status of the vehicle to the depot while the driver is still en route. The automated Fleet Operating System RX also provides all status data such as oil temperature and fill level of the diesel tank or battery. The colleagues in the depot receive contactless and reliable all relevant data of the entire fleet, including information on the remaining range for e-buses. This enables predictive maintenance and thus reduces time and repair and operating costs. An open data interface ensures the connection to depot management systems. The paperless transfer of relevant information also ensures more security.
With the newly developed autonomic logbook RX, the time-consuming and error-prone manual logbooks are coming to an end. This reduces the administrative effort and at the same time relieves the driver. Applications for tax relief and subcontractor accounts can be created at the push of a button. In addition to the labor savings, the system guarantees the correctness and consistency of the data, which can withstand a check by customs and tax authorities. Neither additional devices or apps nor manual data entry are required for this.
In a bus simulation, IT-TRANS visitors can experience the performance of the innovative fleet management gateway (FMS) live on the ATRON vehicle on-board computer AFR 4. The vehicle status and driving data are bundled and transmitted in real time to the control center, depot and workshop. In connection with the FMS gateway, the AFR 4 becomes the data and communication center in the vehicles. ATRON is one of the few providers that develops, integrates and connects the entire package of hardware, software and services from a single source. That is why ATRON rightly claims "We speak public transport" You can book an appointment and order free tickets at any time by mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
