TWO ON-BOARD SYSTEMS DEVELOPED BY CLEARSY
An announcement system making it possible to inform passengers in real time of the progress of their journey (approaching stations, time of arrival …etc.).
The announcement system developed by ClearSy is a system on board the train which is interfaced on a bus system with the door control system and which, under its command and control, allows pre-recorded sounds to be broadcast to give various relevant types of notification such as the opening or closing of the doors, or warnings.
GAPS / UP2S
Onboard electronic safety system for detecting the platform. This system, linked to an onboard mobile step, makes access to trains easier for persons with reduced mobility, by placing a retractable step on platforms which are not straight. It complies with Order in Council STI PMR (Persons with reduced mobility).
Its purpose is to measure the distance between the platform and the train and to send this measurement to the mobile step, as well as to authorise its deployment (SIL2 Certifer). This mobile step fills the gap between the train and the platform and gives access to mobile disabled persons.
