Mass Transit Application Case Study Bus Rapid Transit System Product Platform Screen Doors (PSD)
Introduction: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT, BRTS, busway, transitway) is a bus-based public transport system designed to improve capacity and reliability relative to a conventional bus system.
Typically, a BRT system includes roadway that is dedicated to buses and gives priority to buses at intersections where buses may interact with other traffic alongside design features to reduce delays caused by passengers boarding, leaving buses or purchasing fares.
BRT aims to combine the capacity and speed of a metro with the flexibility, lower cost and simplicity of a bus system.
Product: Platform Screen Door is the important safety equipment in use for Bus Rapid Transit systems. These platform edge doors separate the stations with the traffic to prevent passengers from any injury caused by accidental falling outside.
Platform Screen Doors – full height & half-height are often used in ground stations, convenient to look-through and easy to install making them apt for BRT systems
Solution: TOSHI – Automatic Platform Screen Doors having its expertise in the field for the last 10 years, having implemented 6 Successful projects in India for platform screen doors.
Platform Screen Door Driving System uses a brushless DC motor as it’s the main driving force for Durable and 24x7x365 Operations. Synchronized belt system then changes the rotary movement of motor into linear reciprocating movement of PSD making it to open and close. Self-locking of PSD is managed by controlling the motor driving program.
When the PSD meets with any obstruction during the closing, controller will receive a signal and send out a command to open the door to prevent any injury or damage.
