CAF Jerusalem tram

ISRAEL: CAF has awarded GMV a contract to supply an automatic vehicle location and depot management system for Jerusalem’s expanding light rail network.

Based on GMV’s SAE-R software platform, the system will provide standard functions such as tram fleet tracking, driver communications and passenger information, and will be used to regulate services and ensure efficient management or movements and depot track occupancy.

It will also provide capabilities for dynamic routing, junction priority requests, automatic flange lubrication and tunnel lighting management, as well as the ability for the control centre to manage the vehicle air-conditioning and passenger information equipment remotely.

All of the light rail vehicles operating on the Red and Green lines will be fitted with onboard units and touchscreens, while a series of workstations will be provided for line operators.
