universal design award

almex.optima cl is a compact on-board unit for buses and trams with the functions for vending and inspection of tickets, integration into telemetric solutions as well as online communications with the control center. Optimum ergonomics, both for passengers and for drivers, were the key design issues. The touch screen operated by the driver can be pivoted into a vertical position and adjusted to each driver's needs. The operating elements for presentation of electronic tickets, withdrawal of tickets bought and payment via cards are arranged at an angle inclined towards the passengers entering the vehicle.
