Passenger flow control“Autoconductor”system
The “Autoconductor” system is a hardware and software complex, working as a constituent of “PILOT” fleet management system, containing unique solutions allowing automation of the majority of passenger carriers’ working processes.
The project is developed with participation of motor-coach terminal managing companies and carriers who assisted us in implementing the system which is as compliant with the market demands as possible. In the project the following is accomplished:
- Counting passengers in different types of buses built on the analysis of entering and exiting passengers;
- The system of automatic ticket registration for city and suburb public transport;
- The system of automatic tickets registration sold by driver on intercity trips;
- The system of automatic registering of tickets at the non-automated remote stations;
- The system of privileged passengers control.
The passenger flow recording system is one of the most complicated tasks at the moment. On the market you might find plenty of solutions, however the most of them are extremely ineffective. The most common solutions known are infrared sensors and electronic stares. The first one doesn’t work when there is even a slight difference between temperature inside the vehicle and in the street, also there is a common for the both solutions problem in detecting the direction of passengers’ moving and impossibility to count passengers tightly close to each other. All the problems are easily resolved by the video analysis, because the video picture has the same quality in any season of the year meaning that it’s easier to mark out from them the characteristics required for the passenger counting.
