Karlsruhe (euro adhoc) - Karlsruhe / Ingolstadt, December 14th 2011. The
Ingolstadt-based transport company, INVG, has commited itself to innovation
through init. Their goal? To increase the efficiency of one of the strongest
economic regions in Germany, and in particular, to improve the information
available to the approximately 13 million passengers. To do this, the most
modern telematics system, supplied by INIT GmbH (Karlsruhe), a subsidiary of
init innovation in traffic systems AG, will be used. 

The specialists for the world's leading systems supplier of transportation
telematics will equip the INVG control center and 157 vehicles with hardware and
software. The order volume amounts to over 2 million.

The INVG already uses the planning software, MOBILE-PLAN from init's subsidiary
initplan. And now, a decision for the introduction of a traffic management
system has been made using init's Intermodal Transport Control System
(MOBILE-ITCS). The system from INIT, which has been used by numerous public
transport authorities worldwide, was INVG's first choice.

Complete solution for traffic management and ticketing

As a central management tool, the ITCS provides the dispatcher with all the
information they need to manage the traffic efficiently at a glance. The ITCS
shows the locations of all vehicles, and maps it into concise presentations.
Traffic disruptions are indicated immediately by reports on affected vehicles
with system alarms. The ITCS supports the dispatchers by giving
automatatedsuggestions to resolve problems and restore regular service.

The crucial element in the vehicles is the combined on-board computers and
ticket printers, EVENDpc, which functions as a complete solution to all
ticketing and ITCS activities in the vehicle. It ensures a perfect communication
flow with the control center, and a reliable data supply and data disposal in
the vehicle. The EVENDpc also supports the traditional sale of tickets by the
driver. As the on-board computer, EVENDpc is also responsible for all passenger

Passengers of INVG are the winners

The passengers of INVG will be the main winners in the introduction of the new
control and information system. By linking to other information systems such as
DEFAS, (implemented on January 1st 2011 as Bayern-Fahrplan), and through
real-time data transfer, the INVG will offer its passengers a smooth and timely
service with secure connections in the future. Stop information will be
announced in the vehicle by onboard speakers and displays provided by init. With
these service improvements, INVG hopes to convince even more motorists to the
use bus and train in the future.

The new ITCS will offer other transport companies the opportunity to use the
system. "This is precisely the strength of our system - it is an intermodal,
interoperable and multi-client capable system. That means it integrates and
processes the data out of different sources. It is also possible that other
transport companies can connect without jeapordizing the privacy of their own
information and data . The system will increase their operating efficiency while
enabling new services for passengers in the Ingolstadt region," said Dr. Jürgen
Greschner, board member of init.
