BUS STOP ANNOUNCEMENT WITH AUTOMATIC VOICE ANNUNCIATION (AVA) INCREASES CONVENIENCE AND ACCESSIBILITY
Clever Devices Automatic Voice Annunciation (AVA) system automates on-board passenger announcements, which not only keeps your passengers up to date automatically, but also helps create more accessible buses for visually impaired and hearing challenged riders. Automated voice announcements alerting passengers to upcoming stops are coordinated with LED signage on board the bus to help all riders travel with more convenience and independence. The system is fully automated so that bus operators are free to concentrate on driving and other tasks requiring their attention.
FULLY COMPLIANT WITH ADA
Clever Devices Automatic Voice Annunciation system complies with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). AVA features include volume control and voice modulation, which automatically adjust announcements so they can be heard over people talking inside the bus as well as over street noises outside. And the AVA’s “stop request” feature allows visually impaired riders to easily signal the operator to ensure they don’t miss their destinations.
Our automated signs and AVA announcements not only make transit accessible to more people with disabilities, they also provide better on-board information to help commuters, tourists, and elderly riders reach their destinations. With Clever Devices AVA advanced technology on board the bus, all riders get clear and accurate announcements about approaching intersections, sights, and stops.
EFFICIENT, AUTOMATED, ACCURATE
AVA works with Clever Devices patented Intelligent Vehicle Network (IVN) on-board computer system and PerfectNav GPS–based navigation technology to tell the Automated Voice Annunciation system where the bus is and sends the correct audio and visual announcements through the AVA system for every stop and every route.
