Finnish technology company Teleste’s on-board solution will be utilised on rail group Stadler’s Merseytravel Metro trains, due to be delivered to Liverpool by 2020. The device will be installed on 52 vehicles to help improve safety for passengers.
Teleste’s system comprises Ethernet network, intercommunication and passenger counting, public address system, passenger information system and high-quality LED and side-by-side thin-film transistor LCD displays for information delivery and advertising.
Train drivers can now open and close doors and dispatch the train from a station while rear-view cameras and cabin monitors are fitted for safe passage on side access doors. The trains also feature a CCTV system to monitor passenger safety inside the carriages.
