EQUANS France's Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) module enables transport operators to better evaluate and optimize their routes, assess vehicle loads, improve performance and simplify traffic reporting at local and national levels. The APC solution not only provides you with over 98% accurate data on the use of your services, but also offers you an innovative way to evaluate count data through 3D video.
EQUANS France's APC module is fully integrated with the SAEIV system, as it uses the same software as the electronic vehicle control unit for optimal compatibility.
Each APC sensor transmits the number of ascents and descents to the electronic control unit, which is then saved and cross-referenced with data on date, time, GPS, stop, route, interruption, etc.
Real-time vehicle occupancy is visible from the control center, allowing agents to react quickly when a vehicle reaches its passenger limit. In addition, this information is sent to the drivers on the mobile application via GTFS-RT, allowing them to know the occupancy rate of the next bus and ensure the physical separation of passengers. As for your passengers, they will avoid crowded buses thanks to this real-time information and travel safely, which will contribute to their confidence in public transport;
