University of East Anglia – Nexus Alpha LPS HELIOS 65
Launched earlier in 2017, an award-winning bus interchange, featuring swinging seats, an electronic LCD display and a green ‘living’ roof has been described as “… a blueprint for future waiting areas.” – Dawn Dewar, University of East Anglia transport co-ordinator.
As well as providing live updates on how the buses are running, the Nexus Alpha LPS LCD display provides the UEA with the opportunity to promote university events and communicate with students through the use of videos and images. The LSI Architects designed structure is now being seen as a model for waiting areas across the university campus and further afield.
Pace Bus, Chicago – Nexus Alpha LPS CHRONOS Shelter
2017 has seen Nexus Alpha LPS continue to expand the network of low power real-time bus arrival signs for Pace Bus in Chicago, Illinois. Based around our low power HERMES computer, these permanently connected signs show real time information associated with Pace’s bus fleet.
Several systems being commissioned in early 2018 will be powered from night switched power, charging local batteries overnight, and then running the systems during the day when no external power is available. The upshot is a more sustainable system consuming less power in turn allowing for more signs being supplied for the same budget.
The benefit has been to significantly reduce the cost in connecting 24/7 grid power to the bus stops.
