Ubisense chosen for Canadian project

Posted on October 6, 2011

The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) public transportation service in Longueuil, Quebec is implementing a fully integrated parking automation and automated driver assignment system based on the Ubisense Transit Yard Manager (TYM) solution for the precise positioning of its buses.

RTL's new fully automated bus management system will improve fleet management of its 450 buses, which provide rides to more than 120,000 customers per day across five cities. Solotech and ISR Transit formed a partnership to deliver this solution to RTL and chose the Ubisense TYM solution for the RTL deployment which is scheduled to be completed in March 2012.

The solution will be comprised of Bus Depot Management (BDM) core application, integration with RTL's existing software and project management provided by ISR Transit; digital display, PC panels, card readers, and hardware installation and integration provided by Solotech; Transit Yard Manager solution provided by Ubisense, with augmented functionality for RTL.

The Ubisense TYM solution utilizes an ultra-wideband (UWB) real-time location system (RTLS) to provide precise location tracking. The solution will provide RTL with multiple benefits that will improve fleet management efficiencies and costs. Benefits include decreased human errors due to manual bus-finding, reduced search times, improved pullout-times and increased fleet availability through reduced maintenance down-time, according to the company.
