NYC Digital Totems
Future Systems have been manufacturing a further phase of double sided Digital Totems for the New York City Department of Transport’s Select Bus Services – SBS.
Future Systems have so far manufactured and deployed 170 of these SBS digital totems throughout New York, providing travellers with up to the minute, real-time passenger information (RTPI) at bus stops around the city. This new phase will add significantly to the existing quantity of signs.
The totems are designed to operate through the heat of the New York summer and sub-zero temperatures of the New York winter.
Future Systems developed the software to connect up the Digital SBS Totems to New York DoT’s own RTPI system over their NYCWIN wireless network and notify bus customers how many minutes or stops away their next bus is from their bus stop.
