Infodev EDI assisted by their UK Route to Market specialist On Train have received a valued order for the provision of Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) Equipment for the Vivarail fleet of Class 230 vehicles destined for Operation in Wales.

Vivarail, On Train and Infodev EDI are all exhibitors at Rolling Stock Networking on 11th July 2019 at Derby Arena (Velodrome) Derby UK.

Providing a valuable boost to Infodev UK sales. The new order for Automatic Passenger Counting Equipment valuably follows a previous Vivarail order for the Class 230 West Midlands fleet.  Infodev equipment is widely installed on the UK fleet, most recently for ScotRail and TransPennine.

Infodev were able to offer an ambitious delivery programme by utilising their technical engineering strengths to ensure that the equipment can be installed swiftly.  The integration design is being performed by Vivarail. The specification of the solution ensures that passenger counts are discriminated at carriage level with real time download of data.

The equipment is very valuable for any train operator that needs to meet franchise commitments for passenger counting or wants to identify and deliver the benefits in operational efficiency that accurate passenger analysis can facilitate. The comprehensive Infodev solution is backed up by powerful analytical software packages that provide high quality data upon which service and investment decisions can be made in confidence.

Harry Vrucht – Technical director of Infodev EDI Inc said “we welcome this new order and the loyalty of Vivarail to our passenger counting solution. Infodev equipment has been installed on vehicles in the UK since 2006 and the reliability and longevity of our equipment is renowned”.

Kevin Lane – Managing Director of On Train said “We represent Infodev in the UK and were delighted to have assisted to close the order for the new Infodev systems.  Presently we have significant interest in the UK from operators and new builders that either do not have automatic passenger counting or seek a reliable long term solution with much higher accuracy on raw count data than competitive systems can provide.”

Infodev are world’s leaders in automatic people counting, be they passengers, shoppers, visitors or people in transit.  Our equipment is fitted on many rail vehicles and busses in the UK and internationally.  Our equipment also has significant uses in retail organisations, shopping and station applications or for any diverse purpose where the study of the movement of people can improve commercial benefit.
