Transports Publics Fribourgeois (TPF)

TPF tracked and managed more than 250 vehicles. Buses scheduled correctly. Customer comfort and safety guaranteed. Cleaning schedules and maintenance always on time.

The real-time location ultra-wide-band (UWB) technology from Ubisense is the key to our operational organisation; we couldn’t operate our network without this technology. It is the only truly suited technology for indoor and underground depot bus location. I strongly appreciate the competence and expertise of all involved Ubisense staff. Also, the quality of support and installation documentation is excellent. I’m looking forward to working with Ubisense on extending the solution to more of our depots.”

Synchronize not Shuffle

Hours of valuable time can be wasted each day shuffling vehicles into position to allow access for maintenance, route to cleaning or prepare for dispatch. Ubisense Transit Management integrates with existing scheduling and maintenance systems to guide the optimal staging of vehicles to reduce time spent in shuffle.

  • Dynamically update dispatch plans based on vehicle status and location
  • Centralise control of parking and guide drivers on entry to optimal spaces
  • React rapidly to changing circumstances such as driver availability or adverse weather

Get a whole new perspective on your depot so that you can save time and minimize disruptions.

Tracking Vehicle Locations

Tags

Buses, trams or trains are fitted with industrial-grade Dimension4 tracking tags that receive power directly from the vehicle or with long, multi-year life batteries. Tags transmit their location to within 1 metre (3 feet) using ultra-wideband signals for indoor spaces or GPS outdoors to within 5 metres (9 feet). Tags are robust rated at IP69k for ingress protection against water and dust, giving long-term reliable performance, rain or shine.

Tags have multiple fixing options depending on vehicle

Sensors

Dimension4 sensors are placed across indoor areas giving complete coverage where normal GPS signals are not received. A combination of Omni (ceiling mounted) and Directional (wall mounted) sensors are available to fit the environment and keep infrastructure costs low.

Software

A three dimensional model of the transit yard is created in software with spaces easily defined to represent entrance, parking, cleaning and maintenance areas. Vehicle locations are recorded in real-time with ‘snap-to-space’ neatly depicting actual vehicle location relative to the environment. Integrations with existing packaged or bespoke transit systems means information is consolidated in one place with easy to use maps, and configurable searches, alerts and automations.

Mr Grégoire Ramuz, Transports Publics Fribourgeois (TPF)

The system was deployed to provide localisation on a complex and demanding environment – to locate buses in a depot without GPS signal with a precision under a meter. It was able to integrate multiple platforms and proved to be extremely reliable.

A European Transit Authority

The implementation of vehicle reporting is easy to use and assesses. The training of non-technical teams went very well, it is an easy tool to learn. We have been using it for about 2 years and there have been no bad surprises.”
