Mobile Totem

The L.B. Foster Inform mobile totem uses the latest high definition touch display and exceptional craftmanship to inform travelers of disruptions, customer information and advertising. The totem is both wireless and mobile. Capable of running 24 hours on a single charge and using WiFi or 3g/4g mobile communications makes it a versatile piece of equipment.

L.B. Foster’s totem is driven by Inform Media, an extremely powerful media generator with plug-in application support. This includes disruption management, wayfinding, mapping tools, train, plane and bus live location, and more.

The first totem by L.B. Foster was launched in 2017. The mobile, wireless, battery-powered information display is now in use at several airports and railroads including Heathrow, Gatwick, Bristol, TransPennine Express, South Western Rail and Network Rail. The Totem is designed and manufactured to Section 12 compliance for use in underground infrastructure as well as IP65 for outdoor use. The totem hardware is also AICAS Explosion certified for use in public areas.
