Innovations for alpin and urban cable cars

Modern wireless systems for public transport allow for communication with individual vehicles and with passengers.
LOOP21 offers a modular solution for digital transmission of several services.
With an ideal combination of hardware and software components, it is possible to control security cameras, lighting, intercom systems, power supply, or digital displays. In addition, we offer modern services and a digital information portal for passengers.

In 2015, the cable railway company of a renowned ski area built a new cable car, a 3S lift from the Doppelmayr/Garaventa group. In order to provide for safety, monitoring and control of the cabins with a single system, the company opted for LOOP21’s Mobility Communication System (MCS).

  • Wi-Fi along the entire route
  • One-way and two-way intercommunication with the cable car cabins
  • Playback of music or announcements
  • Control of lighting in individual gondolas
  • CCTV cameras
  • autonomous energy supply and charging stations
  • central control via a touch display at the control room

This project was realised by LOOP21 in close cooperation with Doppelmayr/Garaventa. LOOP21’s engineers developed a solution based on state-of-the-art network technology. Specially designed communication boxes with all necessary components were integrated in the cabins. A backhaul network which establishes all connections between stations and cabins was built up via a wireless local loop. Employees of the cable railway company can control the entire system centrally from the control room.
