Passenger Information & Display System (PIDS 2000)

market2

Holman Engineering developed a Passenger Information & Display System for Olympic Park Railway Station (The venue for the Sydney 2000 Olympics). This project involved the development of a complete system which would inform passengers of when and where the trains were going. This is no small task when you consider that during the 1998 Easter Show period (12 days) there were over 1.8 million passenger movements at Olympic Park Station.
Holman Engineering had 15 weeks to design, prototype, procure components, manufacture, assemble, install and commission a complete system (The total project was successfully completed in the time allowed).

 

The system included four major components:

The photograph (right) shows the primary and backup DVA and control computers. This system is a “Hot” redundant system which allows the easy transfer of tasks between the primary and backup systems in case of failure. The PIDS 2000 system runs completely automatically, only requiring human intervention in case of timetable amendments.

Passenger Information & Display System (PIDS 2000 – St Leonards Station)

ezipos

Holman Engineering used the Passenger Information & Display System that they developed for Olympic Park Station as a basis for a PIDS system that was developed for St Leonards Station. The St Leonards version is a less complex system that has only one PC carrying out the multiple functions of driving the signs, providing the announcements to four zones (ie a Digital Voice Annunciator), interfacing with the State Rail Authority signalling system and providing the user interface. The system is completely automatic (ie it does not require any operator input during normal operation).
