MOBY-Innovative on board information technologies

The MOBY project launched by Atac in 2003 aims at providing passenger, during their travel on bus, both information on mobility and on public transport (information about special events and possible diversion of route, instructions for use of authenticators, smartcard, change in commercial supply) and information about entertainment events and leisure time (most important places of historical interest, special events, news press updated in real time, meteo, horoscope).

This system consists of a Data Center and on board system: the Data Center is the core of information, where it is arranged the contents editing (news meteo, life, etc.). All information transmitted to the Data Center by GPRS to the vehicle on board system are locally stored on a computer and finally displayed through a double LCD video.

The system in general is placed on buses crossing the Capital old city centre and on tourist buses: a total of about 400 vehicles, among traditional and methane fuelled ones.
