Product information

Rail Systems

R2P gets your investment rolling. In our practice-orientated system solutions for railway vehicles, we place particular importance on the individual requirements of our customers: Forward Facing (route monitoring), Pantograph CCTV and Driver-Only- Operation (DOO) are the key benefits of our video system. Through the combination with other systems, our customers receive a strong complete solution.

Mobile CCTV Train

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - Mobile CCTVBoth the function and design of the R2P video system are tailored to the high requirements in the rail sector. The combination of analogue and digital cameras increases the flexibility and therefore reduces costs. It is even possible to couple multiple carriages one after the other thanks to the innovative encoder, as it converts analogue image signals to digital image signals and transmits them to the central recorder via the train’s internal network. Only one device is required, where previously a separate recorder was needed per carriage. The number of cameras can be reduced due to the high-resolution digital technology.

Your benefits

  • combination of the best technology from analogue and digital systems
  • cost savings through reduction in hardware
  • robust long-lasting design
  • high-resolution images, fewer cameras
  • central recording on a central recorder

Passenger Counting

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - Passenger CountingOvercrowded or empty vehicles will soon be a thing of the past with the R2P video passenger counting system. Optimize your route planning with regard to economy and appeal.

Our 3D technology shows passenger numbers reliably and is not distorted by light or weather influences. It also rules out including items of luggage in the count. The R2P system therefore delivers the exact values, which can be analyzed with an internal software.

The passenger counting system also includes the option of connecting video cameras and recording image data. This also provides the option of evaluating and optimizing passenger numbers.

Your benefits

  • cost-efficient through integrated video protection
  • stereographic counting with 98 % accuracy
  • tested a thousand times over
  • German development & production
  • video evidence for accuracy of figures

Passenger Info System

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - Passenger Info SystemService and entertainment for passengers, welcome additional income for operators: The R2P passenger information technology pays for itself in just a few months.

Via the R2P monitors in the vehicle, advertising spots, useful information on the route and train connections can be shown. Passengers are kept well informed with the news broadcast.

This added value increased the appeal of public transport considerably and also helps increase passenger numbers!

Your benefits overview

  • increased appeal
  • generation of increased income
  • live switching in the vehicle
  • bridging of waiting times

Fleet & Data Management

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - Fleet and Data ManagementIn the R2P fleet management system, the threads of all components are compiled to an informative database. Evaluate the live data of all your vehicles in real time, collect information and intervene directly if a problem occurs.

The fleet management functions include video and ECO-Management, GPS fleet tracking and monitoring the vehicle parameters via CAN bus. Connecting alcohol immobilizers (alcometers) to the fleet management system also means that an alarm is generated if the equipment is manipulated.

You can plan everything together with foresight, which saves lots of time and costs.

DOO - Driver Only Operation

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - Driver Only OperationIn practice, the driver usually bears sole responsibility for ensuring safety when entering and leaving platforms and stops. State-of-the-art camera technology from R2P offers excellent added value in this area: Thanks to this technology, the driver receives a quick and direct overview of the boarding and disembarking area.

Even before the train starts moving, the driver will be able to verify that no passengers are located in the door area. The DOO system therefore enables one-man control of the vehicles and increases the efficiency of route planning through the recording.

Your benefits

  • reliable technology
  • not affected by light reflections
  • low assembly height
  • tried-and-tested technology
  • heated cameras
  • individual external design

Pantograph CCTV & Forward Facing

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - Pantograph CCTV and Forward FacingThe Forward-Facing camera is installed on the front of the vehicle. It’s recordings provide information on what has happened in the field of view of the driver. Thermal cameras can be optionally integrated, which help identify dangers even in complete darkness.

Whether it’s passing through red lights or determining the cause of near and actual accidents – Forward Facing provides clear evidence. It also detects unauthorized presence on or crossing over the tracks, identifies stone throwers, train surfers, graffiti sprayer or obstructions.

The pantograph camera serves the same function: Day and night, the camera documents any faults or wear on overhead wires or current collectors or whether damage has occurred during travel.

Your benefits

  • low investment costs
  • high cost savings
  • reliable technology
  • overvoltage protection
  • optional thermal camera

Alcometer

Rail and Road Protec (R2P) - Rail Systems - AlcometerAnyone whose task it is to get hundreds of people to their destination every day needs a clear head.

The alcometer, an electronic immobilizer, can be used to check the alcohol level on the driver’s breath – for the safety of the driver and passengers, as well as other road users. A convenient breath test completed in seconds checks whether there is still alcohol remaining in the blood. The engine only fires up if the result comes back negative.

The operator therefore has an effective and simple process for avoiding accidents due to alcohol consumption. Because, if anything happens, the operator carries the full responsibility according to the law and can be held liable.

Benefits of the complete system

  • high cost savings (fuel, maintenance, personnel)
  • reduced downtimes
  • increased service life of the vehicle and technology
  • legal security with the alcometer

For that feel-good feeling on the bus – at any time of day, this goal applies to drivers and passengers alike. Maximum protection is guaranteed through permanent image capturing.

Less damage caused by vandalism and increased violence prevention are major benefits. The R2P support bar cameras, for example, can record detailed images of faces.

Door and reversing cameras help the driver maintain a safe overview at all times.

Your benefits

  • parallel analogue and digital image capture
  • -40° to + 85° temperature resistance
  • captures up to 100 images
  • freely configurable image quality (up to 4CIF)
  • image pixelating, e.g. in the driver area
