How Are Interactive Display Systems Used In Trains?

This blog is focused on glass fabrication technology and its uses. For most people, glass fabrication is only about making bulletproof glass. But armor glass is only one of the many advantages of fabrication technology. Indeed, glass fabrication is widely used for armoring solutions but the technology can be used for making smart displays.

Let’s discuss the civilian uses of fabricated glass

Bulletproof glass has a quality. It can withstand great force and pressure. If you hit a windshield made of bulletproof glass with a stone, the stone will slip away without even making a scratch on the windshield. The windshield will remain safe even when attached with iron rods. It will show no sign of exhaustion. There will be no damage to the windshield.

Similarly, a bullet resistant window can protect passengers and keep their belongings safe from theft and robbery attempts. Trains need added protection, especially after extended threats. Mob often tries to stop trains midway to highlight their needs. Unsocial elements take advantage of such situations and try to break into trains by breaking windows.

Trains run at a high speed without worrying about flying objects that could hit their windshields. Ordinary glass can easily break on coming into contact with objects flying at a high speed. It is for this reason that trains need bulletproof windshields. It isn’t bulletproofing trains but strengthening their safety and protecting the passengers from strangers. Trains passing through forests and woods need added protection from stray animals, especially elephants.

Also, trains need interactive display systems to keep the passengers updated about the upcoming stations, weather, availability of seats, and amenities available in stations. The smart displays can be controlled from a remote area. The displays can even be used to run educative advertisements and classifieds. In this way, the display systems can be used to generate revenue.

A smart display is like a regular screen but it is connected to the web. Train operators can control and use the smart displays for updating passengers. The display units can be set in train stations as well. The units can be used to provide useful information to passengers.

The use of interactive display systems has increased the use of trains. Their presence provides a feeling of safety to passengers. If any passenger has any questions, they can find their answer on the information displayed on the smart display units.

What Are The Uses Of Interactive Display Systems In the Transport Sector?

Smart glass technology used in making interactive display systems for modern means of transportation is a game changer. It allows converting a simple-looking piece of glass into a Passenger Information System (PIS) for displaying information about upcoming trains, routes, fares, and other important things.

Let’s discuss the smart glass technology and its uses in detail

Smart glass technology

As evident from the name, the technology makes glasses smart. The window that allows you to take in scenic views from your seat can also be used to display useful information like the next station, amenities available, expected time to reach your destination, important phone numbers, advertisements, and educational material.

A smart window display works just like an LCD. It can be used as a normal window or as an LCD depending on your needs. In transport systems, these windows can be used to establish communication with passengers. The system managers can keep the passengers updated about the confirmation of their tickets, journey timing, number of stations, and emergencies like a breakdown.

How does smart glass technology work?

Smart glass utilizes digital technology that turns the glass into a display unit. But the glass has no control buttons. It is controlled with a remote. Only system administrators have the control of smart glasses. They make necessary settings in the display so the passengers get the necessary communication and information. Smart glass technology has many uses, especially in transportation systems. It can play a crucial role in transforming the travel experience of passengers.

Advantages of smart glass technology

  1. Information Everywhere

With a digital window display, information can be displayed anytime anywhere. In other words, you don’t need to bring passengers or customers to a specific place to send communication. You can easily use the smart glass technology to reach out to the commuters and keep them updated about the services.


  1. Entertainment

Smart glass technology can be used to entertain passengers. You can short movies and other educational content on the displays to entertain the commuters. In this way, you can keep them engaged with your services. It will enhance the travel experience of passengers to the manifold.


  1. Marketing

Interactive display systems can be used for marketing and branding. In other words, you can even make quick money by running advertisements for brands that want to expand their reach. Smart glass can be used as a marketing platform for profit.
