Infotainment

Over the last decade, on-board passenger information systems have evolved from standalone simple audio and visual displays to multimodal integrated systems that keep passengers informed, safe and entertained throughout their journeys on public transport systems. 

Today, these systems encompass multiple technologies, including advanced visual displays, public address systems, emergency intercom, digital surveillance systems and wireless networks which are based on interactivity with passengers. 

Alstom is innovating for new levels of passenger experience

This interaction paves the way to a time of seamless continual service where, whenever they wish, passengers will be able to optimise their transport solution on the basis of localisation, time and destination, so enjoying a totally new level of “passenger experience”.

This revolution in the travelling experience responds to the current demands of passengers for improved, innovative infotainment options.

Effective connectivity

Smartphones can be connected to the train via the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies. Information can be accessed through interactive tables, located in passenger seating areas.

Improved fluidity

Passengers can enjoy smoother journeys, thanks to real time passenger location information, NFC authentication and a travel itinerary which updates dynamically, so improving the fluidity of the journey from beginning to end.

Better comfort

Passengers wish to interact  more and more with their environment, customising it to improve their travel comfort and make the most of their travelling time.  For example, the introduction of “smart” windows will heighten the pleasure of travelling through using augmented reality.
