Vision for digital age customised real-time passenger information

press release

(Newcastle upon Tyne, 4 February 2016) Following the success of sharing its passenger information services expertise at the Railway Interior expo at the end of last year, Nomad Digital will present at both SmartRail Europe and the Train Communications Systems conferences this year.

Speaking at the Railway Interiors Exhibition in Prague last year, Nomad outlined the benefits of the company’s On-board Information Systems (OBIS). OBIS will provide ground-breaking levels of bespoke information for passengers, accessible from their own mobile devices as well as via coordinated on-board visual and audio systems.

OBIS responds to the challenges faced by all train operating companies (TOCs) globally and their customers in accessing both WiFi and passenger information. Indeed, intelligence supplied by the UK-based Transport Focus Group ranked ‘improved passenger information’ and ‘access to WiFi’ in the top three of the British rail passenger’s 10 priorities.

OBIS is uniquely positioned as its fully integrated passenger information, communications and infotainment systems are all based in one IP platform. Nomad Digital is now preparing for a host of industry events this year, to meet face-to-face with its customers, to discuss how OBIS can enhance the passenger experience. In April and June this year, Nomad will attend and present at SmartRail Europe in Amsterdam from 19-20 April and at the Train Communications Systems conference in London. The company will also have another impressive stand presence at InnoTrans this year, building on its attendance over the last 10 years.

Nomad Digital said: “WiFi and passenger information have often been seen as separate entities. OBIS allows for an integrated delivery of information in a form that is much more tailored to the individual, providing TOCs with better communication with their customers.

“The Nomad platform also enables reporting of each train’s operational data, including status and remote condition monitoring, to inform the operator of potential maintenance requirements, or live incidents.”
