We develop technological integration and engineering projects that promote safe, sustainable and accessible mobility in thoroughfare and railway infrastructures.
Smart Mobility, Happy Citizens
Ikusi will be implementing Dolphin On-board, its travel information solution, in the new trainsets coming into service in the Glasgow subway system in 2020. These are 17 driverless trainsets to be built by Swiss railway producer Stadler Altenrhein AG.
The purchase of these units carrying the Dolphin On-board travel information system falls under the integrated modernization process undertaken by the Glasgow subway, the oldest system in the world along with that of London and Budapest. It suffices to recall that the tunnels of this infrastructure were built in the day of Queen Victoria.
Stadler Altenrhein AG particularly assessed Ikusi’s integration capabilities, the solution’s flexibility and Ikusi know-how on the subject of on-board data networks, supported by its alliance with Cisco. IRIS certification made it possible to speed up the contract, shortening the process of certifying Ikusi as a supplier.
Ikusi has developed and implemented the communications, ticketing and on-board equipment systems to assist in the operation of the Vitoria tramway. To this must be added the security, information and communications systems for the mobile material supplied by Ikusi.
The maintenance service company Actren, composed of CAF and RENFE, has commissioned a pilot project from Ikusi to install a router-server in its regional trains (CIVIA) and in its long-distance trains (120 Series). Ikusi will deploy this on-board solution, which will equip the trains with train-land connectivity and enable RENFE to perform maintenance tasks, provide passenger information from the land side, and prepare to offer passenger wifi connections.
Actren Mantenimiento Ferroviario S.A. was founded on May 17, 2007 with a 51% CAF shareholding and a 49% RENFE-Operator stake to provide integrated maintenance services to trains and railway installations.
Ikusi was the company charged with providing the systems of radio communications, signage and operating assistance (OAS) for the Puebla Tourist Train.
The importance of the systems Ikusi is in charge of lies in the fact that these enable the deployment of control and communications components between trains, field personnel, and the operations control center, which exercises integrated control over the operation of the new trains. Moreover, a TETRA digital communications system to transmit voice and data between the trains and the control center has been installed.
