【Bus Driver’s Seat Protection Monitor】To Reduce the Risk of Contact Infection

The new corona pandemic has caused the world to experience lockdowns, state of emergency declarations, and limitation in movements.

Essential workers such as health care workers, caregivers, delivery companies, and those who are involved in logistics are at high risk due to their constant exposure.

The government and public transport operators have taken several measures. For example, to reduce the chance of contact between bus drivers and passengers, getting in and out of the front doors is prohibited to ensure that only the middle and rear doors are used. Drivers are also required to wear a face shield (or mask) and gloves. (See: Transportation Response Center)

There are indications in many countries that this risk of infection associated with migration or traveling may continue in the future.

DISIGN offers a protection display with integrated glass signage.


  • Reduces the chance of contact for bus drivers and protects them from risks such as droplet infection.
  • Protective glass incorporates a transparent display that provides real-time traffic information and weather forecasts.
  • The driver’s seat is visible through the glass, reducing pressure on passengers and not affecting service delivery.

Robust design with reinforced glass bonding technology to withstand vibration. The display is built directly into the glass, which reduces the backlight brightness. Also, no fans are needed making the system operates with low power consumption.

This product can be installed in the vehicle as well, as it only needs to be supported by the glass. (Development costs will be charged for specifications, etc.)

EPD Communication Bar for Campus | Disign Incorporated

Recently, remote learning styles are taking off. What will be the effect on this for large campuses, and how will these campuses be utilized? 

The Communication Bar with Electronic Paper Display (EPD) is a solution that can provide students a more entertaining way of communicating. It can provide the latest updates about what is going on around your school.  

Communication Bar

Let us explain how the communication bar works. The Content Management System (CMS) allows you to post information to EPD via a browser.

The CMS operation procedure is very easy.

  1. Select the image type and upload the content. (*sample image)

  2. Select which terminal to use. You can select the display terminal according to the needs of the content, such as only one device or multiple devices.
  3. Set the content display schedule. (*sample image)

The EPD only needs power when changing the display content. In the US and Europe, it is called a sustainable display, a next-generation eco-friendly tool, because it can retain the screen contents without any power consumption.

It is highly recommended to use the EPD Communication Bar as a new medium to deliver the necessary topics to the people who need them.

Institution Management Tool: EPD Room Sign | Disign Incorporated

The number of rooms and facilities in buildings such as universities, hospitals, and large buildings that have vast land areas is several, and it is important to have room management. 

Room sign at the entrance of classrooms has not been converted to IoT yet. This time, we would like to introduce a room sign application that uses an electronic paper display (EPD).

EPD Room Sign

Features of EPD room sign

  1. The usage status can be updated in real-time.
  2. Energy cost reduction.
  3. Emergency Support
  4. No major construction required.

A Closer Look of Demand Bus | Disign Incorporated

The definition of a Demand Bus is where the bus alters their routes based on the call of the user rather than using a fixed timetable or routes.

This is how the Demand Bus works:

  1. Fixed route type ⇒ Like fixed-route buses and community buses, you can get on and off at specified bus stops, but with the Demand Bus, it operates when there is a reservation.
  2. Detour route/area demand-type ⇒ Frequently operates a fixed route but operates to detour to other bus stops according to the passengers’ reservation.
  3. Free route meeting point types ⇒ Operates the shortest route between bus stops, according to the reservation, without setting a specific route.
  4. Free route door-to-door type ⇒ An operation style that goes around the reserved places in the designated area without establishing fixed routes or bus stops.

Demand Bus-Bus Spot

We would like to introduce the following operating systems using EPD (electronic paper display) and LCD.

Demand Bus-Bus Spot

STEP 1 : Install EPD/LCD at each stop called bus spot. Then connect to the bus company’s server via LTE.

STEP 2 : When the user sends a request through the EPD/LCD at the bus spot, the information will be instantly shared with the bus currently in service, and the bus that is will be selected.

STEP 3 : Once the bus driver confirms, bus information will be displayed in the EPD/LCD.

Demand Bus-Bus SpotDemand Bus-Bus Spot

(Left: EPD content image, Right: LCD content image)

The picture above is the content image with the touch panel attached.

No reservation is required in advance, so why not take advantage of the bus resources that are in operation. Also, there is an option to include a solar panel to the bus spot making it easy to install in places where limited power is provided.

About the Development of Local Information Bulletin Board | Disign Incorporated

Our company has been developing BUSOLA: Smart Bus Stop Solution since last year, 2019. The development of the bus location system and electronic paper display (EPD) has made us realize the data communication technology and low power consumption EPD are possible to use in various situations.

For example, people are easily influenced by fake news and fabrications in times of disaster and emergencies. Having credible information from reliable sources is essential, and a system that can automatically receive and check information is necessary. Also, with limited power during a disaster, it may be challenging to get information through smartphones since conserving the phone battery is essential.

Home Bulleting Board

We would like to introduce our BUSOLA system to be incorporated into the “Community Based Bulletin Board” during an emergency. We will provide information that concerns the local area. In the event when the power supply is interrupted, it will automatically switch to battery operation. Smartphone, mobile, and PC require power at all times to display content, but with EPD, it only needs power when changing the display content, and no power is required when displaying content. Since LTE communication is possible, disaster information is accurately received and displayed from a reliable source.

We recommend installing it into the bulleting board of condominiums, local meeting places, public halls, or schools.

Busola can also collect regional environmental data. For example, it can collect data for the entire region such as, collecting and analyzing PM 2.5 status and flooding information for each location of the installed bus stop. (further details about this in the next column)

Easy-to-see EPD Road Information Board | Disign Incorporated

Do you find it difficult to see the road information board?

There are two reasons why using LCD as guide boards is difficult to see. First, the natural light is too bright. And Second, the screen of the information board itself is too dark.

EPD Road Information

Most highway service areas are outdoors. And during the daytime, to improve the visibility of the LCD screen in a place where sunlight shines, high brightness of 1500 cd or more is required. Also, LCDs require power, so heat treatment measures are also necessary. It will require a cooling device such as a fan, making power consumption even greater.

In this case, it is effective to use EPD (Electronic Paper Display). EPD has the same contrast and reflectivity as paper, so the more light there is, the more visible it becomes. It is also possible to read even at night.

EPD does not require power when displaying content. It uses power only when the content needs to be changed. Unlike LCD, it does not require power 24/7. Also, since the backlight is not required, the power consumption can be kept very low.

The EPD can be solar-powered or battery-powered. It is very convenient to be placed where the power supply is difficult. Also, no major installation is required.

EPD Road Information

EPD Road Information

However, EPD can’t display videos, so it’s a good idea to have an image similar to an electronic poster.

EPD is very effective under the following conditions:

  • Content that does not need to be changed frequently.
  • Content that needs to be displayed and changed in multiple places.
  • A place where the installation is required even if there is no power supply.
  • A place with bright light.

You can choose LCD or EPD according to your needs. At DISIGN, we can make proposals that meet the needs of our customers.

Energy-saving Application with EPD | Disign Incorporated

Climate Change causes various disasters such as typhoons, heavy rains, earthquakes, and forest fires are occurring not every decade, but every year. How should we respond to this situation?

One important countermeasure these days is through energy conservation because of many environmental problems. One of the most urgent countermeasures these days is energy conservation. These environmental problems are considered caused by energy consumption.

Especially in urban areas where the population is high, there is a need to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Recently, building owners are trying to find effective ways to help in energy reduction.

Building Energy Management System

The Japanese Ministry of the Environment created ZEB, also known as Net Zero Energy Building. ZEB is a building that aims to reduce the annual balance of primary energy consumed by the building to zero while realising a comfortable indoor environment. (Reference: Ministry of the Environment Zeb Portal)

As a contribution to the realization of ZEB, solar power generation for energy creation (creating energy by itself), and as energy saving, a power storage system, high-performance building materials and BEMS (Building and Energy Management System: Building) that controls air conditioning, lighting, and ventilation Management system). By making full use of these technologies, we have become able to enjoy activities while contributing to the environment.

By applying the information acquired from BEMS (Building Management System) and knowing how much energy is consumed or reduced, awareness of energy-saving will change. To provide such information, we still want to use products that consume less power.

Building Energy Management System

Electronic paper display (EPD) is known for its low power consumption technology.

Here are the features of EPD:

1. Low Power Consumption 

EPD (Electronic Paper Display) requires power only when its contents are changed. EPD does not require backlight and electricity during display because it has a function to retain its content causing the power consumption to be reduced remarkably.

2. High visibility

Since it has the same contrast and reflectance as paper, you can read the display screen clearly under most light conditions.

3. Wide viewing angle

Since it is almost paper-like, the wide viewing angle allows viewing from any direction. 

4. Environmentally friendly

EPD is highly recognized in Europe and the US as the next-generation ECO product that can reduce power consumption relatively.

Building Energy Management System

Our EPD is LTE compatible. Also, it is possible to install a battery for easy installation to a wall
