Swarco and Teleste collaborate to deliver an environmentally friendly information display solution for Trafikverket in Sweden

TURKU, FINLAND — 15 February 2024 —Teleste and Swarco, a leading supplier of intelligent traffic management systems, are bringing sustainable information display technologies to the transport network operated by the Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket. Over the next three years, a frame agreement between Teleste and Swarco will oversee the supply of Teleste’s RGB LED displays to enhance Trafikverket’s operations. The agreement also holds the potential for two additional two-year extensions.

Teleste and Swarco share history of long-term collaboration in providing technologies and solutions for the public transport sector. Anders Jonsson, Business Area Manager for Swarco, emphasises its importance for meeting Trafikverket’s high technology requirements.

“Uniting innovation and expertise, our collaboration with Teleste bridges the gap between cutting-edge technology and its successful implementation, ensuring that the customer not only receives what they desire but also what they need. In an ever-evolving public transport landscape, this synergy is key to achieving technological excellence and high customer satisfaction.”

The new Teleste displays will progressively replace the existing ones at Trafikverket stations throughout Sweden, leveraging the latest display technologies to enhance travel experiences with real-time travel information. Furthermore, this display solution represents a substantial leap forward in the realm of sustainable public transport infrastructure. Claudio Borrello, Head of Teleste’s Public Transport Operators business line explains the benefits of the technology for transport operators and the environment.

“The incorporation of remote diagnostics functionality represents a pivotal advancement in sustainability and life-cycle management of our displays that allow us to conserve resources and cut-down emissions. In addition to these eco-friendly practises the technology enables transport operators to avoid any unnecessary disruptions in the availability of passenger information, creating a solid foundation for excellent public transport service."

The RGB LED technology is known for its small energy footprint, which makes it a great fit for environmentally friendly transport networks. Taking the requirements for green mobility a significant step further, Teleste has also equipped the displays with smart diagnostics functionality designed to enhance the performance of the displays. By enabling real-time monitoring and troubleshooting remotely, the technology extends the life of the displays while minimizing the need for physical service visits.
