UTA FrontRunner taps INIT
Douglas John Bowen
INIT, Innovations in Transportation, Inc., said Thursday it has signed a contract with the Utah Transit Authority for the installation of an Intelligent Transportation Solution to be fitted on more than 35 FrontRunner regional rail vehicles.
INIT said 50% of FrontRunner equipment already have existing Automatic Passenger Counting technology from INIT and will be upgraded with the new system components. The contract calls for on-board computers (COPILOTpc), passenger information displays (PIDmobil), driver data terminals (PRESSit), and onboard announcements (PAmobil).
In addition to the hardware, INIT will supply software for real-time passenger information online and at stops (MOBILE-STOPinfo), along with reporting software (MOBILEstatistics).
INIT’s onboard computer, the COPILOTpc, will serve as the vehicle logic unit for the FrontRunner railcars. INIT’s reporting software, MOBILEstatistics, will further enhance UTA’s ability to operate the FrontRunner Rail system more efficiently by taking all relevant data from the onboard computer and providing a flexible database of both real-time and static transit information.
