ATRON Smart Vehicle Location (ASVL)

The ASVL offers all the functions of an RBL client and can be operated both as a standalone solution and in conjunction with the ATRON Gateway (AVG). The standalone solution is ideal if a fixed installation is not possible in small vehicles due to lack of space. A solution with AVG is resonable if additional components/interfaces of the vehicle periphery are to be integrated.


  • event and time-controlled online connection via GSM/LTE
  • position report to the control centre/display of the last and next stops
  • voice and data communication with the control centre
  • android-based app for standard smartphones and tablets
  • integration of third-party apps
  • intuitive operation
  • can be used as a standalone solution for small vehicles or together with AVG for large vehicles
  • updates and data supply take place automatically due to full integration into the ATRIES background system


  • circular or roster-controlled tour selection
  • manual tour selection by choice the line, direction and stop
  • GPS-based positioning
  • display of the stopp string with stops, timetable, distance and expected arrival time
  • automatic switching of the stop
  • monitoring and displaying the deviation from the timtable
  • day/night switching of the screen
  • quick driver change
  • message centre for administration of voice and data communication

In cooperation with AVG, further components/interfaces of the vehicle periphery can be integrated.

Supported functions:

  • PA control for microphone, indoor and outdoor speakers, e.g. for announcements
  • control of indoor and outdoor indicators via IBIS-IP or IBIS for passenger information
  • control of LSA and barriers/switches
  • robbery call with activation of the control centre via a hidden button

ATRON Modular Vehicle Location (AMVL)

Every vehicle that participates in the ITCS / RBL system requires an on-board unit (OBU). This sends the position to the control center, for example, or realizes communication with the driver. The AMVL application offers all the functions of an RBL client and runs on the ATRON Vehicle Terminal (AVT 4.10) in conjunction with the ATRON Vehicle Gateway (AVG).

This solution is suitable for all customers who do not need ticket sales through the driver. All additional components/interfaces of the vehicle peripherals (indicators, ELA, door contacts, GPS & mobile radio, radio for LSA) can be integrated via the AVG.

  • online connection via GSM / LTE
  • event and time-controlled position reports to the control centre
  • display of the last and next stops of the line
  • voice and data communication with the control centre
  • intuitive operation
  • automatic software updates and data supply
