Kolejowe Zakłady Łączności supplied and commissioned the ITS within the framework of the project "Modernisation of the tramway network in Grudziadz".
The project consisted in fitting 17 tramways with our passenger information systems, on-board computers, a system for counting passenger flows and monitoring. All systems are integrated in the on-board computer equipped with GPS and GPRS. KZŁ also provided a real-time passenger information system for tramway stops, a system giving green light priority to tramways, and dynamic websites with the current timetable. The company also provided necessary equipment for the traffic control centre, and the ITS management software.
The most interesting and the most challenging task was the modernisation of the tramways Düwag GT8, which are over 40 years old, including the installation of the above-mentioned modern systems.
It should be emphasized that the key products for that project were designed and manufactured by Kolejowe Zakłady Łączności.
The city and our company implemented the real-time passenger information system, on-board systems (monitoring, sound system, passenger counting, on-board computer, validating machines, information displays), a mobile information service for travellers and traffic lights control. Everything is controlled from the Traffic Control Centre.
