Toulouse Tramway chooses PcVue

The railway systems integrator Roiret Transport, subsidiary of the Vinci Group, has selected the PcVue software solution from publisher ARC Informatique to supervise the centralized technical management (CTM) of the new Toulouse tramway. After the Lyon tramway and the Singapore and Santiago (Chile) undergrounds, it is the thirtieth urban system to opt for this solution. Every day PcVue manages the information necessary for the transportation of more than 10 million passengers around the world.

This equipment includes electricity substations, stations (ticketing, traveler information terminals, etc.), intercom, CCTV, and sometimes even the track signaling systems. In practical terms, if a ticket machine is faulty, for example, the software sends an alarm to the operator in the central control room so that the most appropriate corrective action can be taken. In the case of the Toulouse tramway, PcVue will interface with some thirty controllers (including one for each of the 18 stations). The software manages 15,000 to 20,000 information items in real time. It can also run applications handling larger volumes, with up to several hundred thousand managed variables.

"We first appreciated the ability of ARC Informatique to develop specific protocols, particularly for the CCTV. This enables us to interface with the network supervision PCs that have ´business´ protocols and thus ensure the continuity of the installation. Next, PcVue provides a ´VCR´ function which records the events. For example, if an incident occurs at a junction, the entire scenario leading up to the incident can be played back. Lastly, the IntraVue module enables PcVue to supervise and integrate equipment such as the CCTV cameras directly on a TCP/IP network. It is no longer necessary to use a dedicated PC for each type of equipment." declared Mr Clarenne, Business Manager at Roiret Transport.
