Beyond its advanced digital technologies, SISMO 2 is first and foremost a tool that supports the department’s environmental and digital transition. By continuously improving the interoperability of public transport and the passenger information system, SMTCO aims to offer a modern, reliable and virtuous alternative to individual transport. Based on state-of-the-art technologies capable of integrating and processing data from increasingly complex networks, SISMO 2 plays a role in improving both quality of life and air quality for the 825,000 inhabitants of the Oise.
SISMO 2 will be equipped with the Navineo CAD/AVL (Computer Aided Dispatch and Automatic Vehicle Location) system, a major innovation compared to its previous version. Supplied by Equans, leader of the consortium during the construction and commissioning phase, this system will offer the 16 SMTCO operators the possibility of coordinating and optimizing their routes on the basis of timetables and passenger frequency. Thanks to its intelligent equipment and its real-time data collection, analysis and processing software, the Navineo CAD/AVL geolocates each vehicle on the network and ensures instantaneous information sharing between drivers, the control centre and passengers. This ensures that when a breakdown or an unforeseen event disrupts traffic, routes can be regulated and an efficient service maintained. By July 2023, Equans teams will install display equipment (LED terminals, multimedia TFT screens, signs) on board vehicles and in stations, as well as on-board computers, on all bus, minibus and coach networks.
Another major change for SISMO 2 will be the new ticketing system overseen by KUBA. Cityway will complete the modernisation of SISMO by renewing its Multimodal Information System.
“Since 2010, SMTCO has been pursuing an ambitious policy in favour of the development of public transport in the Oise. Facilitating real-time management and information on such a large network is a challenge that our teams are proud to take up alongside Cityway and Kuba!” explains Baudouin Huon, CEO of Ineo Systrans, an Equans group company.
“If SISMO 1.0 was a success for passengers, transport authorities and operators alike, SISMO 2.0 will be even more successful! New technologies are an invaluable ally in revolutionising the appeal of public transport and making our travel sustainable.” concludes Arnaud Dumontier, Chair of SMTCO.
