Posted on April 22, 2010

DRI Corp. announced that its Digital Recorders Inc. subsidiary in Durham, N.C. received an order worth more than $1.5 million from a U.S. transit authority located in the Southeast.

"Shipment is expected to commence in second quarter 2010 and to conclude in fiscal year 2010. This order, which reflects our end-customer's confidence in our Digital Recorders engineered systems, is significant to our fiscal year 2010 business plans and continued technology development," said David L. Turney, DRI's chairman/CEO. "The order also is directly related to U.S. stimulus funding projects."

Products ordered include: Talking Bus automatic voice announcement systems; Digital Recorders automatic vehicle location and tracking systems; OTvia real-time passenger information systems; and PASS passenger advisory sign systems.

Providing transit system operators with timely information regarding vehicle operation, location and security, these products also help transit passengers quickly obtain travel information for a more user-friendly travel experience.
