What’s in the box?2023-05-22T17:26:20+02:00

Gaia Public Transport is a real-time platform including four different applications, aimed at different users:

  • A web portal for Public Transport Authorities and Operators with functions for central administration, real-time operation and monitoring.
  • A driver support including information, communication and navigation functions.
  • Onboard information – Destination signs, inner displays and audio alerts to provide correct and updated information to the passengers.
  • A mobile agent with passenger guidance and personalized information, and a mobile app for field technicians.
What does it take to get started?2023-05-19T13:49:13+02:00

Since Gaia Public Transport can collect data from several sources, it’s easy to get started. The only thing required is some kind of hardware that can transmit information from the vehicles. In Sweden, Gaia Public Transport can use national open data from the public transportation access point TrafikLab. The software and configuration can be distributed to devices on the vehicles through the cloud, without new hardware installations onboard. It makes it cost-effective and easy to combine with other existing systems.

How does Gaia Public Transport use digital twins?2023-05-19T13:48:50+02:00
Gaia Public Transport creates and uses real-time digital twin entities within the public transport domain such as vehicles, journeys, and people. Each physical entity and object has its own digital representation that executes and runs in real-time and can act on its planned data or occurring events. The digital twins are constantly updated and retain the state of their physical twins. It makes it possible to apply logic and rules in the cloud to create and control relevant information at any given moment. This information is distributed in all channels to all stakeholders in real-time.
For whom is Gaia Public Transport?2023-05-24T07:45:17+02:00
Gaia Public Transport is for everyone who operates some kind of passenger traffic; Public Traffic Authorities, Operators, and regions working with traffic planning and operations. The software system is made for the passenger as well, which is a central part of our solution.
Why a map-based interface?2023-05-24T10:43:10+02:00
A map is an efficient user interface when presenting how to move between places and for visualization of data for real-time digital twins. It can inform passengers, drivers and authorities about the traffic situation and visualize data connected to the ongoing traffic. Instead of adding a map to another system, Gaia Public Transport is map-based from scratch with all necessary functionality built-in. There is no need to use several software systems. One single map can be used to efficiently display specific relevant information to different stakeholders. The map interface makes it possible to communicate what is going on across various platforms and displays in the entire fleet.
Where can I use Gaia Public Transport?2023-05-24T10:43:30+02:00
Since it’s a cloud-based platform it can operate all over the world.
