Automatic Passenger Counting for Public Transport

Use APC – automatic passenger counting – to know when and how many passengers each vehicle needs to handle. Xovis sensors create real-time passenger counts and are easy to integrate into current counting systems, saving time, money and resources. Base future transit concepts on proven data.

Digitalize passenger counting for improved planning and operations

Monitor passengers as they enter and exit public transportation vehicles and simplify operational planning. The automatic passenger counting sensor keeps track of adults, children, bicycles, prams/strollers and wheelchairs, even during the rush of peak hours.

  1. 1

    Accurate passenger data

    For all public transportation vehicles like buses, trams, light rails, trains, ferries and gondolas.

  2. 2

    Efficiency of transit operations

    Plan for operational characteristics in line planning like fluctuations in ridership, vehicle capacity demands and transfer connections.

  3. 3

    Effective services to customers, based on ridership data

    Operate from a demand-base model to provide better service.

  4. 4

    Optimized passenger boarding, alighting and shortened waiting times

    Reduce dwell time and crowding to improve operations and customer experience.

Transportation use cases: empowering digitalized counting

Wide door coverage 

Cover a large area, including those with low mounting heights.

PCT1 - our public transportation sensor

Designed for public transportation needs, our APC sensor accommodates the dimensions of various moving vehicles, even where low mounting heights and wide doors are an issue. In peak and off-peaks hours, the number of passengers counted remains accurate and even distinguished from objects. Moreover, it supports VDV-301 and ITxPT, the two most common communication standards for interoperability in public transportation vehicles.
