RENFE’s Suburban business unit has installed the Cuper passenger-counting system developed in conjunction with Eliop on 10 EMUs operating in Madrid. The number of people boarding and leaving a train is counted using pressure sensors installed on the fixed step of each passenger door. An on-board processor locates the train using GPS.

Data is sent by digital telephone to the Cencuper central processing unit to generate service demand profiles. Sicer, the Suburban management information system, then processes this data automatically.
