SMARTstop – Modern station and stopping point infrastructure

The first analogue and digital modular building block system for intelligent public stations and stopping points

Build it, like you need it

The SMARTstop station infrastructure series of analogue modules can be combined as desired, offering an extensively compatible system that enables the configuration and equipping of stops with a high degree of customisation and facilitating adaptation to local requirements.

Moreover, these digital building blocks connect public transport stops with amenities, information networks and other services of transport companies, public and private authorities, and businesses, providing a smart and contemporary ecosystem that is intelligent and disabled-accessible. Thanks to the consistently applied modular building block logic, the stopping points can be configured and equipped for a broad range of use scenarios.

SMARTstop is sustainability in action – socially, ecologically and economically

The key aspects and solutions offered by SMARTstop:

-Comprehensive digital real-time information – also using existing information displays

-simple and cost-efficient construction of disabled-suitable stopping points before the end of 2023

-Uncomplicated and user-oriented digital information systems

-High-quality, disabled-accessible and durable stopping point infrastructure

SMARTstop serves humans and not technology. The focus throughout is on people with disabilities, seniors, people with children, all customers and passengers, as well as the employees of public transport networks, the responsible departments at municipalities, planners, and the inhabitants of regional towns and villages.

With SMARTstop, stations and stopping points are no longer reliant on advertising, which generally requires a great deal of investment and is maintenance-intensive. Dynamic passenger information and other real-time information that is adapted to the needs of disabled people is ensured across the transport network.

This is a vital aspect, as most public transport stops in Switzerland are currently unable to display dynamic passenger information. Alongside, a broad-scale upgrading of facilities including screens and displays makes neither ecological nor economic sense. With a minimal hardware kit, existing steles (e.g. Info76, Publitech, etc.) can be equipped with the intelligent SMARTstop timetable app or the stopping point app for dynamic timetable information and additional stop-related services. And thanks to SMARTstop, passengers across the transport network can easily view real-time information. The overall design has been technically optimised to ensure uniform and consistent accessibility for people with disabilities.

The real advantage of SMARTstop is in its modularity. Thanks to a consistently applied building block logic, every stop can be equipped and upgraded independently of the original construction, available space, passenger traffic and local conditions. SMARTstop – future public transport.
