Karlsruhe (euro adhoc) - Karlsruhe/Portland, September 30, 2010. init has recently signed another contract with TriMet (Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon) to equip 254 paratransit vehicles and 15 supervisory vehicles with their combined on-board computers and mobile data terminals (COPILOTtouch). As part of the installation, init will also provide voice radio and cellular data modems, fleet management software (MOBILE-ITCS) for 9 dispatch workstations, emergency alarm improvements and training.

init´s COPILOTtouch is an 8.4" mobile data terminal which uses a Windows® XP Embedded operating system. The built-in, compact computer will organise voice and data radio communications giving TriMet automatic vehicle position calculation and immediate schedule adherence data. The COPILOTtouch will also provide drivers with an easy to view, full-colour touch screen that displays route and schedule functions, and gives clear navigation announcements transmitted through the built-in audio amplifier. The installation of init technology on TriMet´s paratransit fleet will provide passengers with improved on-time service and give TriMet more efficient fleet management control.

The contract between init and TriMet is expected to kick off in October of 2010. The paratransit fleet installation will correspond with the fixed-route radio implementation schedule already outlined in a previous contract between init and TriMet. With a successful APC project already in place on the MAX, TriMet´s light rail system, init looks forward to a continued partnership with TriMet to assist them in creating a faster, safer and more efficient public transport system for the residents of Portland.
