OBoE is an on-board passenger information, localization and communication unit for trains, subways, trams and buses.
The advanced GPS receiver and multi-channel mobile modules like LTE/LTE-A and Wi-Fi allow OBoE to act as a complete data and content concentrator for the train Passenger Information System. It performs position-aware and situation-aware automatic public announcements using the available analogue or digital/ VoIP PA system, it distributes contents on video and multimedia peripherals such as internal LCD monitors, internal and external LED panels and servers for passenger on-demand services. OBoE, working as a train-to ground mobile gateway, is able to download multimedia and tracking information from a Ground System and to receive commands and play audio/ video contents from Operating Rooms. It also sends P.I.S. module diagnostics to the Ground System and provides direct access to hosts on the train LAN with configurable forwarding, thus allowing a fully flexible solution for fleet management. OBoE functions are fully compliant to TSI PRM normative.
