The “Kristbergbahn” single-track aerial tramway in Montafon, Austria, is 1,575 m long and transports as many as 35 people at a time up to the top station, at an altitude of 555 m. In 2016, the cable car was modernized, with an investment of around 750,000 €. The entire control equipment, electrical engineering and brake systems, the car and the exit area were completely renewed. As part of the project, Wireless.Consulting GmbH designed and installed a completely new iWLAN concept. Here, the main focus was on ensuring the availability of the system, because waiting times caused by missing control data would be unacceptable where 215 people need to be transported per hour.
In Oakland, which lies in California and is one of the largest cities in the greater San Francisco area, city planners have implemented a visionary and pioneering project: Since November 2014, an automated people mover (a self-propelled and driverless train) has been transporting people safely and punctually from Oakland International Airport to Coliseum Station along the 5.1-kilometer route between the international airport and the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). The vehicles are made by Doppelmayr Cable Car GmbH & Co KG. Wireless.Consulting GmbH played a leading role in the design and implementation of the highly complex LAN, WLAN and firewall infrastructure.
Today’s city planners are faced with a major challenge due to ever-increasing populations: They have to accommodate more people in buildings – without taking up additional space. In many metropolises, space is in short supply. Buildings are growing ever taller. But how do people get to the top without waiting a very long time for their elevators? The solutions involve vertical and horizontal elevator systems that are controlled wirelessly. Working closely with ThyssenKrupp, Wireless.Consulting GmbH develops the concepts and implements the control systems.
Live video surveillance in trains – it is not only public safety that is important when it comes to transmitting video data in real time. When monitoring driverless trains – as in this subway project in Nuremberg, Germany – trouble-free and secure data transmission via WLAN is the cornerstone that ensures smooth operation. During the expansion of the route network in Nuremberg, we at Wireless.Consulting GmbH took on the entire WLAN planning operation, including WLAN site surveys in the new tunnel system.
