Real-time passenger information about the destinations and arrival times makes travelling by train much more convenient. S-Bahn Hamburg, the local railway company for Hamburg, is aware of this well-known fact and wants their customers to enjoy the benefits of real-time information too. In order to digitalize the train stations, S-Bahn Hamburg replaces former analogue display boards and train destination displays with digital information boards. Passengers have now permanent access to the latest information.
The visual differentiation of the S-Bahn lines is even better thanks to coloured markings. Thanks to digital displays special information such as timetable changes and train length displays are even easier to recognise.
In order to ensure that this new generation of train destination displays can be supplied with real-time data from the control centre, reliable network technology is required. Any deviations from the timetable must reach the passengers on time – without any interruption.
