React Interactive

React Interactive is an open data service that further enhances the functionality of The React System by connecting it with other city systems and public transport networks.

The product is a combination of class leading talking signs, wayfinding hardware and support services based on the latest software technology including apps and databases.

The innovative technology is not only compatible with The React System, but it now adds independent connectivity to the cloud to support new data sets and an interactive back office. This allows third party apps to access an excellent data resource to improve their service to users.

Why React Interactive?

React Interactive is delivered using the latest cloud-based database technology and is recommended by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) amongst other organisations.

What makes React Interactive more widely appealing is the ability for users to select journey planning and companion apps, and influence the environment around them in real time through a back office service.

React Interactive provides:
  • Richer, more connected journey support for users
  • Software that links the user to the stops, buses and other modes both ways
  • Increased access to intelligence and advice about your passengers and the operation of your public transport network
  • The potential for significant cost savings in your social care and transport budgets
  • Compatibility with The React System and existing transport signs
  • Local authority report and planning services

Trigger boards and smart device apps

React Interactive uses trigger boards and a Bluetooth app like The React System, but connects them to the cloud so users can plan ahead and be walked through their journey in real time using their handheld device or beacons.

The biggest benefit for users is the interaction with other smart systems such as connected transport signs, buses and traffic signals. For example, this connectivity can alert bus drivers discreetly about the needs of a passenger about to board the vehicle, or stop traffic at a pedestrian crossing to allow the user to cross safely.

React Interactive also offers automated alarms for off route and potential danger situations; journey arrival alerts and the input of user profiles and saved journeys.

React Interactive is especially compatible with existing smart device apps such as Appandtown and Blindsquare.

The React Interactive service allows users to:
  • Plan and save journeys
  • Be ‘walked through’ and monitored along their journey in real time
  • Save a ‘needs profile’ to ensure information is presented in ways that are accessible to that particular user, for example to accommodate partially-sighted people, or people with Autism
