PIS controller is an on-board passenger information, localization and communication unit for trains, subways, trams and buses.

The advanced GPS receiver and multi-channel mobile modules like LTE/LTE-A and Wi-Fi allow PIS controller to act as a complete data and content concentrator for the train Passenger Information
System. It performs both position- and situation-aware automatic public announcements using the available analog or digital/VoIP PA system and it distributes contents on video and multimedia
peripherals (internal LCD monitors, internal and external LED panels and servers for passenger on-demand services).

PIS controller, working as a train-to-ground mobile gateway, is able to download multimedia and tracking information from a Ground System and to receive commands and play audio/video contents from Operating Rooms. It also sends P.I.S. module diagnostics to the Ground System and provides direct access to hosts on the vehicle LAN with configurable forwarding, thus allowing a fully flexible solution for fleet management. Functions are compliant to TSI PRM normative. Its computational power addresses a broad number of applications and services related to train journey information, multimedia contents distribution, on board video surveillance live view and diagnostic management. The device is equipped with a SmartUPS for safe shutdown in case of main input power failure.
