Digital Recorders receives $490,000 CAD/AVL order

Posted on September 8, 2004

Digital Recorders (DR), a division of Digital Recorders Inc., received an order for more than $490,000 for its surface transit computer-aided dispatch/automatic vehicle location (CAD/AVL) software from the Albuquerque (N.M.) Transit Department. The software will be used to build upon existing DR equipment used by the transit department, including DR600 modular vehicle logic units and global positioning satellite (GPS) systems. The CAD/AVL system helps transit authorities track and monitor the location and performance of vehicles. The system can also monitor on-board systems, covert alarms, covert microphones and other security devices, as well as vehicle schedules. DR's GPS-based system accurately determines vehicle location to present next-stop information to passengers.
