iris-GmbH is a company developing and manufacturing sensor components for automatic passenger counting. We design, develop, produce and install our opto-electronic sensors for integration with a variety of systems. Our sensors are mounted above the vehicle doors and transmit the quantity of boarding and deboarding persons.
IRMA (Infrared Motion Analyzer), our main product, is a passenger counting system. IRMA was developed for use in urban public transport and it is used in many cities throughout the world. Our portfolio of sensor technologies for automatic passenger counting comprises a wide range of performance classes. The data gained by IRMA is used for the business optimization, capacity adjustment and revenue sharing in Public Transport associations.
iris-GmbH’s specific areas of expertise include infrared sensors (FIR), near infrared sensors (NIR), Time-of-Flight-technology (TOF) and signal processing, particularly for 3D data.
The latest product line IRMA MATRIX works with 3D Image Streaming. The basic prinicple is distance measuring by Time-of-Flight-technology. TOF guarantees the most reliable detection and an exact counting when it comes to adverse environmental conditions and crowds. Modern interfaces to the on-board computer enable the facile integration of IRMA MATRIX.
Our competence in micro systems engineering allows us to optimise our sensors for new passenger counting requirements – ranging from sensor elements to optical and electronic systems and software, and all at a moment’s notice.
iris-GmbH was founded in 1991 and has its head office in Berlin. Here we develop our counting technology and manufacture and test the systems. We maintain close contact and cooperate wholeheartedly with research institutions in Germany and abroad.
It is from our Berlin headquarter that we control our projects, service and sales activities to our primary markets in Europe, Asia and North America. Since 2002 our subsidiary in Santiago de Chile has been covering the Latin American market.
