Recent shifts in the transport industry towards green energy have led to an increase in electric, hybrid electric and hydrogen vehicles on the road. Public transport has seen a rise in the number of clean energy buses on the roads, and questions regarding the safety of the vehicles have been raised.
Clear two-way communication between driver and passenger
Increasing safety measures to protect drivers are an essential part of making public transport safer for everyone, but with these new safety procedures come new challenges.
The implementation of secure screens for drivers to sit behind means that communication between driver and passenger can be more difficult. The Forman V-IU Intercom Unit provides a clear two-way communication between the driver in the cab location and a passenger at the entrance platform, eliminating the challenges created by physical barriers in buses.
Clear communication between driver and passengers through microphones and speakers
Hands-free operation makes the V-IU easy and safe to use when the vehicle is in motion.
A control unit allows the driver to adjust volume levels in case of background noise level changes.
The Forman V-IU meets Electromagnetic Compatibility requirements.
How the Forman V-IU Works
The flush-fit or surface-mount speakers and microphones are positioned at either side of the protective screen for optimal two-way communication between driver and passenger.
Through the control unit, the driver can adjust the speaker volume as required. An LED light is used to notify the driver and passenger when the system is in use.
The Forman V-IU Intercom Unit control module meets the stringent EMC requirements regarding its electromagnetic compatibility. The intercom unit is easy to install and retrofit, with simple setup procedure.

The drastic consequences of fire are well known. Fires on vehicles such as buses and coaches put lives at risk and it’s often difficult for the driver to detect a fire on his vehicle.
From July 2019 a new regulation has come into force making it compulsory for all new types of electric and hybrid vehicles in the European Union to be equipped with an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS).
