(InnoTrans Berlin, 23 September 2014) Nomad Digital has been selected to provide an on-board Passenger Information solution for the US National Railroad Passenger Corporation, Amtrak, covering its national network of inter-city passenger trains.
Nomad’s enhanced passenger services technology has grown a robust reputation within the global rail industry. With unrivalled experience in the design of both modern and legacy vehicle installations, partnered with its market-leading wireless communications platform, Nomad already delivers timely information on destination arrivals, schedule changes as well as other important messages – via both cutting edge screens and high-quality audio – to millions of passengers each day.
Innovative features that are currently in high-demand by rail operators and owners, include a back office interface that is fully integrated with existing systems, such as WiFi, LED signage and audio broadcast messages. Extensive experience of retrofitting legacy trains has also become a key attribute of Nomad, which ensures that all wireless systems perform at a consistently high quality across multiple fleets.
Covering Northeast Corridor, state-supported and long-distance services across America that total over 21,000 miles, Amtrak operates approximately 300 trains a day, connecting more than 500 destinations in 46 states. Amtrak and Nomad will begin the development of Nomad’s Passenger Information technology this year and have plans to deploy it on select routes beginning late in 2015.
Nomad said, “We are looking forward to working with Amtrak on what is set to be a ground-breaking technology deployment on national trains in America.
Nomad has a tried and tested technology that currently informs and entertains approximately 1.7bn passengers per year. Amtrak’s selection of the Nomad solution is a further testament to its success as well as a recognition of its value in multiple continents across the globe.”
