GARE MONTPARNASSE

PARIS MONTPARNASSE TRAIN STATION EQUIPPED WITH AN INTERACTIVE OUTDOOR INFORMATION AND WAYFINDING KIOSK

1 July 2013
Paris, FRANCE

ViaDirect equips Paris Montparnasse railway 

Gares et Connexions (a subsidiary of SNCF, France’s national state-owned railway company) chose ViaDirect and its solution dedicated to Public Transportation for a digitalization test of the Paris Montparnasse railway station.

ViaDirect deployed a new version of the solution already installed in a metro station and in the streets of Paris.

 

For this installation in the station, ViaDirect had the opportunity to offer a dedicated version for railway transportation that met the high level of requirement of the SNCF, for the content as well as the ergonomics.

We decided to add additional innovations:

  • Photorealistic 3D flyover of the city for destinations outside the station
  • Multilingual interface: English, French, Spanish, and Breton (Celtic language spoken in Brittany, a region served by this station).
  • Real-time display of the platform of the trains (with wayfinding to the platform)
  • Smart interface which can bring down the “touch part” (the menu and the browsing buttons) so that people in wheelchairs can touch them.
  • Opinion survey


The hardware was provided by Aplus Système Automation. The Vision(+) Flexi Mega Outdoor model is fitted for an outdoor environment. It is aluminum and is equipped with a 46” high luminosity touchscreen that can reach up to 20 simultaneous touches and has a barcode reader.
