The Modular Vehicle System (MVS) is the latest generation of our on-board communication system, developed for use in public transport vehicles such as: buses, trams, light rail and metros.

However, it can also be used for priority request for emergency vehicles. Its aim is to increase the effectiveness, quality and appeal of public transport by providing accurate and relevant information to passengers, drivers and operators. The current version of the system is the result of more than thirty years’ experience in mobile telematics, based on user requirements and incorporating the latest technology.

  • VECOM® MODULAR VEHICLE SYSTEM (MVS)
  • The Modular Vehicle System (MVS) is the latest generation of our on-board communication system, developed for use in public transport vehicles such as: buses, trams, light rail and metros. However, it can also be used for priority request for emergency vehicles. Its aim is to increase the effectiveness, quality and appeal of public transport by providing accurate and relevant information to passengers, drivers and operators. The current version of the system is the result of more than thirty years’ experience in mobile telematics, based on user requirements and incorporating the latest technology. One of the key tasks of the MVS is to determine the vehicle’s location on the route (position detection and route tracking) in order to provide real-time travel information. Location is determined using GPS satellite positioning and/or VECOM® inductive loops (beacons) in conjunction with the travelled distance. The MVS automatically calibrates all onboard equipment, such as stop announcement systems, dynamic information displays and ticketing machines. The VECOM® MVS system is based on reliable technology that has been deployed in over 50 cities around the world. The system is highly reliable and designed for bus, tram and track side solutions. The MVS is responsible for route tracking, punctuality, regularity calculations, informs the trackside controllers (TSC) and/or the central system about its position, mode and status and provides a human interface to the driver through the driver terminal. This results in increased effectiveness and quality of service in areas such as punctuality, identification for switch point control and priority requests, passenger occupancy measurement, and data collection for the purpose of operations analysis. Smooth and predictable traffic flow for trams and buses is an essential requirement. It is crucial to provide passengers with minimal waiting times and smooth operations. For transport companies looking for optimal services and efficient operations, VECOM® technology can be a key tool.
  • Modular The high pace of technical developments demands a flexible vehicle system that can control a large variety of peripherals. The Linux platform is an open platform that provides the option for expansion and maintainability. By standardizing equipment and interfaces the costs of purchase, as well as installation and maintenance, are kept to a minimum. By making the system modular and scalable in both hardware and software, the initial investment is safe-guarded and the system can be expanded and enhanced over a long time period. This strategy guarantees a long life cycle of the MVS. The standard MVS system consists of the following modules: ƒƒ Vehicle Processor Box (VPB); ƒƒ VETERM (VECOM® -Terminal). If VECOM® detection is desired, the following modules can be added: ƒƒ VECOM® Box; ƒƒ VECOM® Transponder. Stand-alone configuration The system offers a low entry level because it can be deployed stand- alone in any number of vehicles without the need of a central computer system. The driver logs in and selects a trip or route at the beginning of operation. The MVS synchronizes on stops and handles the priority requests at intersections and switch point controllers automatically without the operator intervention. The system can also be set up so that the driver can manually change the direction commands if override is needed. The communication is accomplished through the simple VECOM® loops or alternate radio system. Integrated configuration In an integrated configuration the system can be provided with a data radio for the IP based communication. The radio system enables the MVS to contact the central system in real time. Real-time information can be transferred to a central computer during the operation which enables the presentation of real-time information on passenger information displays, both on the public transport vehicles and at stops. The MVS platform is an open platform that has been designed so that it can be integrated with 3rd party systems. This makes it easy to integrate the MVS system into existing systems, regardless of manufacturer. Advantages For the traveller: ƒƒ Shorter, more comfortable rides because of a better traffic flow; ƒƒ Current and clear travel information in the vehicle and at bus stops; ƒƒ Safer journeys because MVS enables the driver to focus on his primary task. For the carrier: ƒƒ Efficient scheduling because of better flow; ƒƒ Insight in schedules through which optimizations can be done. For the public transport client: ƒƒ Availability of detailed management reports; ƒƒ An improvement of the image and quality of public transport because of more efficient schedules and detailed travel information.
