More information

Market release pending


An emergency communication unit for trains. Along with the frequent occurrence of natural disasters and the increase of large-scale accidents, the importance of these emergency communication units should once again be acknowledged. This product has a communication system with a speech-based interface and video images equipped with high-performance echo-cancelling and noise-cancelling functions. As cities are becoming internationalized at an accelerated pace, the complication of multiple language indications is becoming an issue for public systems. It is critical that anyone can take the correct action through the use of clear pictograms and design methods other than language. The simple outline with features of an icon, allow us to easily recognize this as emergency communication equipment, which we valued as a smart design solution.
