Beacon Triggered Rail Passenger Interfaces Entering Service

We previously mentioned EAO’s rail passenger interface. Railstaff has further news that the UK’s South Western Railway will include the system in refurbished Class 444 trains in November.

The wireless charging works with an app that can signal the seat is occupied and prompt the user to open the app.

“Ticket inspectors can then be informed if the passenger has a ticket while passengers would be able to order food and drink to their seat if there’s an onboard catering service. There are also options to provide tailored passenger information.”

EAO is also working with Eversholt Rail to retrofit the system to Class 395 Javelin trains in use by Southeastern.
