Tenix Bus digitalizes buses and helps companies optimize their fleet operations.
Operational data for the fleet of buses is available for company management as reports or raw historical data. Ready-made reports, based on historical operational data are available for management.
Historical data for all operations is present in Tenix Bus, where analysts can extract data to use for analysis and reporting purposes. This can be useful for customized reports, to provide further insight into operational data.
Data can also be produced for third party APIs on request, to provide relevant data to external platforms for finance, HR etc.
The main component of the vehicle platform is the Tenix VCG (vehicle communication gateway) which has the official ITxPT label. This means that the customer can decide to have an IT infrastructure in the vehicle based on components from different suppliers. The VCG ensures that all necessary data is flowing where it should. Of course, the complete hardware platform can also be delivered, with some or all of the following components:
- Automatic passenger counting (APC)
- External destination displays
- Internal TFT displays for passenger information and infotainment
- Multi application driver
- Terminal (MADT)
- Sales and ticketing equipment (tablet, NFC scanner, payment terminal)
The Tenix VCG collects data from FMS Gateway, which is a standardized manufacturer independent interface for buses. FMS data provides useful insights about the vehicle and drivers’ performance, which can help optimize vehicle usage. In addition, data is, where needed, collected from proprietary interfaces to further enhance the data collection, such as battery condition on electric buses.
Data collected from the Tenix vehicle platform can easily generate additional value through other Tenix modules:
- Tenix automatic vehicle monitoring (AVMS)
AVMS gives an extra layer of control for the fleet operations. In addition to the vehicle level functionality, Tenix AVMS gives the necessary overview of how the operation runs according to the schedule, and gives the dispatcher guidelines for when to perform operational measures like cancelling/curtailing vehicle journeys, inserting additional vehicles.
