New possibilities in the analysis of the ridership      3D Rendering of the AGLAIA APS-R-PoE structure and flow

The APS-R-PoE defines the starting point of the next generation of innovative automatic passenger counting sensors. It is especially designed to meet the requirements of the railway industry and to introduce new possibilities in the analysis of the ridership structure and flow.
The APS-R-PoE enhances its usability, maximizes emerging remote connectivity options and automates many steps that traditionally require manual intervention and costly labor to install, commission and operate the APC units.


Bi-directional Passenger counting

  • Count boarding and alighting passengers with the highest accuracy available in the market (typically better than 98 percent)
  • The APS-R-PoE fulfills the accuracy requirements defined by the Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen in the document VDV 457
  • Up to 10 individual counting lines are possible! Capture separate figures for interior doors, left and right side or upper and lower deck without the need of additional units

Occupancy monitoring in an area

  • Real-time ridership determination, while eliminating cumulating errors that arise with the classical approach of calculating the difference of boarding and alighting

Video Recording for count verification

  • Record color VGA video files alongside captured measurement results
  • Upload files automatically to a remote location
  • The recording can be triggered via the digital inputs (door contact)
  • Privacy options: Persons are not recognizable on videos

Real-time data

  • Very short latency time of 50ms
  • Suitable for solutions that require an instant event-triggered activity, e.g., reopening of a door if a passenger approaches

Internal data storage

  • The APS-R-PoE can store captured data over long periods in its internal memory, and upload data automatically to a remote file server. This enables a temporary offline operation, and simplifies product demonstrations

Easy setup and commissioning

  • Automatic determination of mounting angles
  • Automatic determination of the floor profile and ceiling height
  • Intuitive and straight-forward setup of all other parameters via the web User interface
  • Instant full performance - no calibration required!
  • Easy demonstration to the end-user by color videos with synchronized data records
