The system consists of 17-inch LCD screens which display realtime information regarding the route, such as the next stops, schedules of connecting routes, and maps of the current area. In addition to this information, the system also provides more general information such as news bulletins, reports, video clips, announcements, and advertisements.
On buses, the system uses GPS in order to locate the vehicle. In addition, buses communicate directly with bus stops along the route via radio waves to apprise those waiting at the stop of the wait before the next bus will arrive.
If the system is not adapted in all MF 2000 trains, it will be used in MP 05 trains scheduled to be deployed on Paris Métro Line 1 in 2012. Each of these trains will be equipped with 4 screens per car.
In the version of the system currently being used in the MF 2000 train, the Dilidam system functions with the help of two computers running Windows XP Embedded. Each computer manages one half of the screens in the car.
