Featuring innovative technologies such as cloud computing (industrial and video server), edge computing (fanless, slim and portable devices), to high-performance embedded systems (blade computing, network processor platforms, DSP processing), Advantech's intelligent systems are designed to meet all demands of the railway market.
Advantech transforms embedded systems into intelligent systems with smart, secure, energy-saving features, built with industrial cloud services and professional system design-to-order services (system DTOS).
Advantech's embedded systems are the perfect fit for railway applications. Some key features include:
Transportation systems aim to provide communications and technology that allows safe, convenient, comfortable, efficient and environmentally friendly travel for all commuters. Advantech offers advanced product solutions for various demands in railway infrastructure applications, including video display walls, CCTV, fire alarm systems, PSCADA servers, automatic fare collections, integrated supervisory controls, and parking monitoring and security.
Advantech offers industrial-grade, high computing power and ruggedised operations for a range of on-board applications, including digital signage, surveillance and communications to control operational quality and ensure safety. Advantech platforms feature a vehicle-friendly power design (compliant with ISO-7637-2), wireless communications, GPS receiver, rail industry certification (E-Mark, EN50155), anti-vibration and shock resistant design (MIL-810), and easy installation.
Advantech products operate in an extended range of temperatures with industrial-grade CompactFlash, from -20°C up to 60°C. These rugged designs endure shock and vibration, and are ideal solutions to speed up system integrators' time-to-market and reduce cost for space-critical, in-vehicle applications.
Today's passenger information systems are key communicators and include railway concourse departure information displays, arrival information displays, arrival summaries, platform displays, bus interchange displays, entrance and exits signs, ticket booth open and closed LED signs, and general way-finding signs.
Along with system reliability, safety and general appearance, the ability to provide accurate, current information on arrival and departure times and gates is a key component of customer satisfaction. Advantech provides industrial-grade passenger information systems that deliver real-time updates on arrivals and departures for trains. They also deliver the ultimate operational flexibility and integration, seamlessly accepting data feeds from automatic third-party train supervision systems.
Combining Advantech mobile computing and wireless technology with data capturing modules, Advantech gives transportation personnel real-time access to critical data. By capturing, moving and managing data, Advantech mobile solutions aid in the effective management of trains. IP54-certified, 3ft drop to plywood, MIL-STD-810F and DO-160 with sunlight readable solution; the Advantech mobile solution is perfect for harsh outdoor environments.
SUSIAccess is a remote device management designed by Advantech for system integrator SIs. It allows SIs to monitor and control remote embedded devices in real-time. The service is also designed to be cloud-based, and it provides on-demand software services for SIs to download and upgrade applications when it needs.
All Advantech embedded computing is pre-loaded with SUSIAccess, providing customers with remote devices monitoring, switch machines, desktop connection, system recovery and system protection features that help customers connect to multiple clients through a single console for remote device management.
Software programmes through the industrial cloud will immediately grasp the sudden equipment malfunction, real-time equipment maintenance and, to enhance system security protection mechanisms, significantly improve maintenance efficiency, as well as reduce personnel and time. Its active update feature also improves the system stability and efficiency.
