Passenger Information System (PIS) communication involve in a whole smart city
In this instance, our client's brief was simple; use taxis to carry ultra-wide hight bright LCD monitors displaying high impact advertising around the city. Whilst the concept is simple, the execution has many variables and through close collaboration and our client's eye for detail we supplied a solution which looks great and operates reliably in a harsh environment, on the roof of black Hackney carriages.
The solution uses our range of high brightness ultra-wide bar type LCD panels coupled with an in-vehicle computer technology running Linux and Broadsign's clever CMS software, allowing the content schedule to be updated on-the-fly using the integrated 3G connectivity. Our in-vehicle systems incorporate a clever power module which allows the computer to stay live for a predetermined period after the ignition is switched off - perfect when the cabs are waiting for their next fare.
