In what could be a major relief to  passengers stranded at the Vyttila Mobility Hub, the Motor Vehicles Department is all set to introduce a system that will provide information on the arrival and location of buses at the hub.

The service is part of the digital signage network that the department will launch at the Mobility Hub on Saturday.

Under the system, whenever a bus enters the hub, the information about its arrival and bus bay where it is supposed to halt will be displayed on digital screens.

“The system is enabled through the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) system. As of now, the RFID system is in place but there is no way the public can avail themselves of the information gathered through the system. So, the Motor Vehicles Department has provided a portion of the screens created for the digital signaling system for the purpose,” said Shibu K Itty, joint regional RTO and nodal officer of the programme.

The digital signages system has been introduced as part of the road safety initiatives of the department. The technology can be used to display text, presentations, scrolling messages on road safety and rules, videos showing safe driving habits, flash news from the department etc.

The main aim is to utilise the waiting time of the passengers at the hub.

In the long run, the system can also be enabled for video conferencing with the transport commissioner. This will mean that on a specified date, passengers at the hub can directly air their complaints to the transport commissioner,” said the nodal officer.  In the first phase, the project will be introduced in 20 offices of MV Department across the state.

The project worth `18 lakh has been fully funded by the State Bank of Travancore. The network will be launched by Transport Minister Aryadan Muhammad at Vyttila Mobility Hub on Saturday.
