InfoLink™ – the vehicle platform for the Swiss National Railways (SBB)
Mobility and safe travel – the vehicle platform InfoLink™ increases the security of railway passengers, supports a smooth-running mobility, and reduces operational costs.
By implementing the vehicle platform, Swiss National Railways (SBB) aimed to reduce operational costs and to increase passenger security. This goal was reached by means of:
• central data and software allocation to the trains
• automatic fault report system
• automatic passenger metering
• electronic passanger information
• video surveillance on the trains
The most important tasks of the central vehicle platform are to ensure encrypted communication and the surveillance of the functional status of all the vehicles. The central platform can be operated from any workstation. The user-friendly user interface runs in a webbrowser (e.g. Internet Explorer).
