For transportation authority’s regulating public transit and traffic, reducing risks associated with driving and commuting to ensure the safety of the general public is a top priority. Governments of the major cities worldwide have been injecting enormous funds into new technologies, aiming to optimize transportation infrastructure and bolster public security for a huge population traveling daily between work, school, and home. With the increased incorporation of intelligent embedded solutions into transportation facilities, transport authorities are now able to launch more initiatives to better protect the lives and properties of drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
Deployment of railway/in-vehicle surveillance presents an excellent example in this regard, demonstrating how a successful model driven by innovative technologies has improved not just the efficiency of mass transit operation, but the security of public transportation as well.

Axiomtek’s UST100-504-FL is providing a powering computing system with a compact size. The UST100-504-FL can be installed with an IP camera for video analysis and can send the data to the control center immediately through the wireless communication module. UST100-504-FL’s compact dimensions also make it suitable for edge computing and video analytics in space-limited areas, saving installation cost for the system integrator.
Nowadays, fleet management and logistics play a key role in transportation services, responsible for coordinating and facilitating various transportation activities. Agent336, a multifunctional RISC based transportation gateway, is suitable for such applications. The CANBus, DIO and power solution on Agent336 make it easy and suitable to connect with devices in the vehicle. Moreover, the wireless extension functions such as 4G/GPS, Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN are ideal for vehicle tracking and positioning. The HDMI display can show real-time maps and routes for better decision-making, helping drivers and operators accomplish their tasks fast and easy.
