Design and produce a Public Address Interface Device (PAID) to interface an existing Harris radio with a DART Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) public address system. Each LRV shall be equipped with this device and have its own unique address consisting of a strand of Dual Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) signals. By receiving and decoding these signals, PAID shall have the ability to transmit audio from the radio directly to the inside, outside, both or “All Call” (to any active LRV) PA destinations in a specific LRV when its address is triggered. This will provide the DART Train Control Center with the ability to speak directly to passengers in the event of an emergency.
