Passenger traffic video calculation systems

Currently we work with over 300 clients in the Russian Federation and overseas.
Our equipment is installed at the Volgobas Volzhky factory and at NEFaz dealers.
After acquiring Autoconductor, you receive not only a system that automatically calculates passengers that has the ability to work online through a dashcam, but you also get these useful functions:
A timetable management system with the ability to transfer information to "Smart Stops"
A system for planning and putting together timetables
A system for calculating revenue and customer concessions
An automatic calculation of the workload of the entire fleet or one specific vehicle
A system for monitoring the earning power of different routes
A system for automatically planning deployment using calculations of passenger load at intervals

What is AutoConductor?

Autoconductor provides a calculation of revenue based on passenger traffic data making it impossible for drivers to take proceeds in an unauthorised way.

After having installed the ticket-processing system Autoconductor, a calculation can also be made about passengers who are travelling on a concessionary ticket and adjustments will be made.

Based on the statistics received from our clients, proceeds rose from 25% to 40% after implementing this system.

Additional Oppurtunities

Integration with
Monitoring timetable implementation. The system controls the timetables and if they are deviated from, it sends a message to both the dispatcher and the driver
Analysis of transportation effectiveness

Case: AutoConductor with Online Dash Cams in Almetyevsk passenger transport company

The Client’s Aim
Provide automated transport monitoring including:

  • Online location monitoring
  • Monitoring haulage
  • Monitoring fuel usage
  • Monitoring the usage of fuel cards

Our Proposed Solution
GPS trackers with fuel sensors connected to the transport monitoring system PILOT were installed. This allowed vehicle movement and actual fuel usage to be monitored.

As a result of the audit of the work system it was discovered that drivers were obtaining cash from fuel cards by periodically refuelling foreign vehicles and receiving money for this. To prevent this situation, integration with the fuel card supplier, PFC (Petersburg Fuel Company), was carried out. As a result of the integration, the following was made possible:

  • Automatic comparison of the amount purchased with the fuel card with the actual amount of fuel added to the tank.
  • Analysis of the vehicle’s location at the time of refuelling compared with the location of the fuel station at which the fuel card is being used.

Final Outcome for the Client
As a result of the implementation it is now impossible to obtain cash using fuel cards. The average haulage has reduced by 6.4% and fuel consumption has decreased by 26%.

An Interview with Pavel Abakumov (Director of the Monitoring Centre in Almetyevsk)

Representative from SkyElectronics

Pavel, which tasks is your subdivision entrusted with?

Pavel Abakumov
Director of the Monitoring Centre in Almetyevsk APOPAT

Our monitoring centre currently consists of three employees. Their main tasks are managing deployment, timetabling, solving problematic situations which appear on the line during working hours and also preparing the necessary documentation for bus deployment and for their return to the depot.

Representative from SkyElectronics

How did the implementation of SkyElectronic's solutions affect your department and organisation on the whole?

Pavel Abakumov
Director of the Monitoring Centre in Almetyevsk APOPAT

First of all the workflow was simplified thanks to necessary information being made accessible and in particular we now see the number of passengers in our buses in real time. We have an understanding of whether we need to make additional deployments or leave everything as it is. We no longer need to send inspectors to the route. If something happens, we can always get timely information from the cameras without having to have a physical presence.

Representative from SkyElectronics

What are your long term plans?

Pavel Abakumov
Director of the Monitoring Centre in Almetyevsk APOPAT

We already plan to finish fitting out the rest of our buses within the next six months. We are concentrating on this process. Of course, we still have the same amount of work but now we have much more understanding and effectiveness.


The Project's Cost Recovery Period

The cost recovery period depends mainly on two factors — the overall volume of delivered passengers and ticket price. According to statistics based on existing installations, enterprises lose out on about 30% of proceeds on average every month. Thus the cost recovery period can be calculated using the following formula:

Cost recovery period in months = the cost of the package / (average amount of monthly proceeds * 0.3)
