GoldSeat, the Delhi based startup that offers entertainment services for travellers, has launched a new service line called GoldLiv for its connected bus customers that adds safety, control and live features.
With its primary focus to provide entertainment and multi-network high-speed Wi-Fi, GoldSeat conceptualized a connected environment on the bus. The platform not only let the passengers’ stream content and internet, but also allows the operators to have a virtual access inside the bus with the support of live cameras and telematics. In addition, the platform has an integrated “Passenger Information System” that keeps passengers abreast with information such as Destination ETAs, Arrival Announcements, Weather Updates, Breaking News and What’s Playing on GoldSeat along with live cockpit view of the bus.
Commenting on their new solutions, Gaurav Kapahi, Founder and CEO, GoldSeat said “A passenger’s safety should be a bus operator’s responsibility and GoldSeat’s ‘Connected Bus’ framework called ‘GoldLiv’ ensures that every passenger has a safe travel. This solution is not only for the interests of the passengers but also for the operators, as it keeps them informed about any unusual activity.GoldSeat aims at establishing a pan India network to become the leader in the bus segment and also to develop a connected travel experience.”
While commenting on the technology behind GoldLiv, Nishchal Khetarpal, Co-Founder, GoldSeat mentioned, ‘GoldLiv’ virtually puts the travel operator inside the bus and gives him full control of the bus, apart from playing a key role of keeping our passengers informed and entertained during their travel. To be true, GoldLiv is beyond just cameras and GPS. At the core, it is a complex technology that can enable and integrate a host of features for, what we call, The Future Travel”.
GoldLiv night vision cameras could carry a recording of up-to 30 days and could be accessed remotely by the travel operator. Apart from location tracking, the platform triggers automatic alerts on the bus ETA, Over Speeding and Off-routs. In an adverse situation, the travel and tour operator also has the ability to remotely immobilize the bus. GoldSeat also sets-up monitoring station for large scale Travel Operators.
