ANTONICS and VIANOVA modernise buses in New York City
ANTONICS is partnering with VIANOVA Technologies, a company based in Kaufbeuren near Munich, to upgrade New York City's buses with top-notch infotainment systems. VIANOVA Technologies specializes in high-resolution, dynamic onboard systems for metros, trams, and buses.
A characteristic of this special ANTONICS antenna: with a diameter of only 200 mm, it is small and compact. Since everything technically necessary is integrated in just one antenna, it saves a lot of space. Also noteworthy is its flat design with a height of just 60 mm – combined with the highest technological requirements. It thus enables the shared use of various communication systems. Since cost-intensive splitters are no longer needed, the antenna is also much more economical than standard products in the industry.
That's what Vianova says:
Equipped with pioneering antennas and the real-time on-board infotainment system for buses, New York bus passengers will now receive real-time information about connections, transfer options, and possible delays via 4G/5G transmission of compact data packets. A powerful Wi-Fi interface ensures the rapid transfer of large amounts of data. The triple antenna from ANTONICS guarantees maximum reception and transmission quality of all three communication channels.
The conversion of the New York buses is so successful that other American cities, such as Chicago, are also being equipped with innovative technology made in Germany.
