WiDS is an ecosystem designed for manufacturers, operators, users of mass transport regardless of the size and type of the fleet of owned vehicles. The system meets three issues which are very important for the manufacturer, operator, and passenger. It supports travel safety and gives the possibility to control and optimize transport processes, which directly affects the optimization of profit for producers or operators.
The system can be mounted on all types of vehicles (minibusses, city buses, intercity, coach, trains) equipped with upholstered or non-upholstered seats by the STER Group as well as other manufacturers (subject to compliance with safety standards and conditions). The system can be extended with functions indicated by the manufacturer/operator. It has extensive integration possibilities with other IT systems.
Optimization of transport processes is the most desired functionality of any system for manufacturers and operators. WiDS was created based on optimization. WiDS system users receive a wide set of optimization tools that will increase the efficiency of their fleet and help set directions for further development. An extensive reporting system allowing for comparison of many variants gives a wide range of analysis and optimization options. You can analyze all information about vehicles equipped with WiDS concerning time function and GPS position. In conjunction with the COMBO seat, you can also monitor the status of the seat (child, adult). The full use of the WiDS system will bring savings in every fleet. The unique advantage of the system is its easy operation and installation. Thanks to wireless communication between the elements of the WiDS system, the only element that requires a cable connection is the system computer that draws the power source from the vehicle. Transmitters located under the seats are battery-powered. By using energy-saving technologies in the WiDS system, the battery life of the transmitter is up to 120 months and is actively monitored. The system is equipped with only proven technologies including advanced communication protocols ensuring the security of data exchange.

Detection sensor (for non-upholstered seats) located under the seat
Detection sensor (for COMBO seats) indicating the position of the seat
Seat belt fastener sensor
Wireless transmitter placed under the seat
WiDS computer equipped with advanced communication software, GPS, accelerometer, and gyroscope (optional)
WiDS system for data presentation, control, analysis and optimization
The COMBO seat has been designed to improve the safety of children's travel. Specially constructed seat and belt adapters allow children to travel safely, protecting their legs and eliminating the risk of slipping out from under the belts. Thanks to the possibility of adapting the seat to the child's growth in a short time, carriers can use the same vehicle for various purposes (school trips and adult transport), increasing its versatility.
