Busem is using Papercast’s solarpowered e-paper displays to create smart bus stops at 14 major locations across the city of Písek in the Czech Republic. The displays aim to provide dynamic arrival information based on the position of the vehicle on the route as well as updates on abnormal traffic conditions.
E-paper displays will show line numbers, routes from bus stops, actual arrival times and closest connections as well as messages for signifi cant service changes and will also promote important city information, news and events.
Papercast’s displays come with night-time LED illumination for readability in all lighting conditions. In addition, the panels are mounted to existing bus stops and connected wirelessly to the cloud-based data management platform. Protected by a ruggedised IP65-rated enclosure, the platform is in continual development and can be remotely updated and managed.
