Hisense TransTech Co., Ltd. (Hisense) has concluded an intelligent public bus transportation agreement with the city administration of Addis Ababa to begin a public transportation modernisation project.
This is according to an online media meeting held by Hisense on March 18.
With a construction period of 21 months, the project would modernise the city’s public bus transportation system with intelligent digital management devices to improve the operation efficiency of local public transportation.
Bus travel is one of the most important transportation among local people.
Few people experience the convenient service there, which drives Hisense with advanced technology and experience to help local city into “fast track” of transportation development.
Jia Yupeng, a director of Hisense, said that on-board video surveillance of local buses in Ethiopia is not connected to the Internet, and the bus command centre is incapable of monitoring and dealing with emergencies in time.
Bus dispatching relies on manual operation, making citizens’ outing inconvenient.
Mou Sangang, a manager of Hisense, said that upon completion, citizens would be able to obtain real-time bus information through APP and electronic passenger information screen.
Meanwhile, bus enterprises would realise real-time monitoring, remote control and intelligent scheduling of buses.
