next:urban at the Municipal Fair 2021

Die Kommunalmesse 2021 fand heuer in Tulln statt und die next:urban technologies GmbH präsentierte eine Weltneuheit. Das erste völlig energieautarke Blackout Terminal mit Solarbetrieb und the Municipal Fair 2021 took place in Tulln this year and next:urban technologies GmbH presented a world first. The first completely energy-self-sufficient blackout terminal with solar operation and battery supply for several days in the event of a black out. Mayors from all over Austria were able to convince themselves that their citizens, even in the event of a discontinuation of mobile communications and a total blackout, receive disaster warnings and thus appropriate measures can be taken.
How does it work? By EWF (Emergency Warning Function). The devices are addressed via the highly available digital radio via DAB+ by an operations control center. A warning text is transmitted to the E-Paper Display and output via text-to-speech every 60 seconds. Rising and falling light indicates that alerts are available. For existing E-Paper driving information displays from next:urban, this function can be retrofitted at the station. The UMTS connection for the real-time info is deactivated and DAB+ is activated. In times like these, a real milestone for an effective disaster warning for residents in cities and communities. The project was implemented in cooperation with the Frauenhofer Institute and Digital radio Austria.

Verkehrsverbund Vorarlberg (Austria) relies on E-Paper

Since mid-August, passengers at the “Marul Kirche” stop in Austria have been able to look forward to dynamic passenger information on a E-Paper DFI. At a glance you can see the next bus connections, which are directly linked to the information in real time. Further other information (e.B. about hiking buses) is also currently being passed on to passengers.
