The transportation industry is a complex and unique space where a combination of infrastructure, vehicles and operations exist and work together hand-in-hand to safely and efficiently serve passengers and their transport needs. Technology advancements, in combination with economic and political climates and governmental regulations, have a great deal of influence on the industry that involves a variety of entities including the Federal and local governments, municipality and also private companies.
Mass Transportation Industry Trends
Technology has been the key influencing factor for the industry’s progress. As embedded transportation computer hardware including high computing power motherboards, advanced and feature-rich embedded systems and Human Machine Interface (HMI) touch panel PCs have become more advanced in their capabilities, the standard in the world of transportation has been raised. The Internet of Things (IoT) has introduced the world to a more intelligent transportation system. It has become the way of the future, where transportation computers are expected to deliver safer, faster, environmentally sound, cost- and energy-efficient transportation infrastructure and operations. Effective communications as well as data capture and transfer have become crucial in a world where the operational information including system monitoring, remote operational control, mass transportation surveillance systems, embedded railway network video recorder (NVR), passenger demographics, GPS location tracking and other key information is highly valued and gradually becoming a requirement and the new standard in the industry.
In this highly demanding operational environment, computer hardware is expected to deliver high performance and communications capabilities as well as having rugged features that can withstand harsh operating conditions including high electrostatic charge, high vibration, fluctuations in temperature, high safety risk from vandalism and more. Axiomtek’s embedded motherboards, heavy-duty transportation-certified touch panel PCs, embedded computer systems, transportation-certified embedded systems, and DIN-rail embedded controllers as well as IoT gateway controllers can be integrated into a variety of transportation industry applications including use as HMIs for train controls; onboard operations including location tracking, driver’s operational condition, door and temperature control, etc.; onboard and wayside mass transit train and bus surveillance systems; ticket vending station control; traffic signal controls and more.
