Human Machine Interface
Having an intuitive and proper Human Machine Interface (HMI) is essential for the users to get insights and manage their systems efficiently. Its importance relies on the benefits of better diagnostics and monitoring. Therefore, HMI should be on the priority list of Operating companies.
Full control via local or remote interfaces
The Human Machine Interface (HMI) is a touchscreen mounted in the cab or other staff areas. It controls and monitors your on-board systems. The Multifunction Terminal is a fully graphical, touch-sensitive control unit.
Among diagnostics, the vehicle driver uses it to operate the Passenger Information System, the Digital Video Surveillance System, the Passenger Intercom System and to select the output or fade-out locations for vehicles for the Public Address System.
The HMI can be installed in all kinds of rail vehicles (from tram to high-speed) and buses.
