Brussels subway system is under construction, and until it is completed, surface cars of many different routes will be using the portions that are already in service. As a result, display boards are used to indicate to passengers the arriving trains. Automatic Car Identification Labels are mounted on boards and inserted into a holder on the inside of a car window. ACI scanners have been placed outside the tunnels at the ends of the completed portion of the metro. The ACI scanners read the labels in the car windows and transit the information to the station platform display boards and to the metro control center. A special close clearance design ACI scanner was used.
