The Advantech Design & Manufacturing Services Embedded Computing team provides a wide range of rugged computing platforms, including rolling stock controllers and rugged computing systems. Rugged computing systems feature dedicated hardware and software designed and built to operate under harsh conditions. These systems qualify to Railway & MIL rugged performance standards for such parameters as shock and vibration, and extended operating temperature range. They are ideally suited for service in extreme environments.
Rolling stock controllers fulfill the demands of applications dealing with automatic train operation, in-train surveillance, passenger information, and multimedia. All systems can be automatically monitored by the control center, whether they be Driver Machine Interfaces, or Network Video Recorders, Passenger Information Systems, or Multimedia & Entertainment Systems.
A ruggedized system is a computer specifically built to operate reliably in extreme environments and conditions, withstand strong vibrations, a wide range of temperatures, and wet or dusty conditions. Different environments offer different and specific attacks on the computing systems that are responsible for collecting, processing, and transmitting the data that lead to intelligent monitoring and management. Ruggedized systems deliver quality, durability, reliability, compatibility, high performance, and long product lifecycle in field-proven applications.
