The delivery includes modules for vehicle and block disposition, vehicle supply and driver information. Various sub-systems, such as the SWM charging management system, the Intermodal Transport Control System (ITCS) and external vehicle location, will be connected via interfaces. With the flexible automatic block disposition, PSIebus will optimize operations across the depots so that no trips have to be canceled. Refueling and cleaning intervals are efficiently planned and monitored, and vehicle downtimes are minimized.
The new system supports the continuing switch to electric buses. The necessary charging processes are controlled via an interface to the external charging management and varying energy consumption is taken into account in order to prepare the charging plan for the next seven days in advance.
PSIebus will increase the transparency of the processes as well as the information of all those involved regarding the vehicle condition of the vehicles. It also will identify and minimize risks, especially vehicle defects, during the disposition. This will reduce operating and follow-up costs and ensure the performance, reliability and economy of the vehicle fleet.
