Transportation Markets Boom with Modular Commercial of the Shelf (COTS) Solutions Today’s transportation markets are gearing up for business, driven by commitments to a greener, faster, safer and more connected transportation experience. Reducing cost and inefciency is the driving force behind these goals – and while the market may be fragmented, these priorities represent common ground in the range of air, sea, land and rail applications facing embedded designers. At the same time, many transportation applications are more demanding than ever, requiring greater bandwidth, networking and...

Growing Economies, Evolving Designs Transportation design is largely driven by the need to deal with change –reducing air pollution and trafc congestion, and providing safe and easy ways to travel and do business. Innovations here ultimately spur growth with increased focus on improving mobility and renewing infrastructures. Systems must be developed more quickly and cost effectively, and they must consider and protect the environment. Ideally they deliver real-time information to passengers with growing expectations of service and comfort – and they do all this while facing the reality...

Technical Demands Within a Diverse Market Next generation systems will require even greater exibility, higher bandwidth and more connectivity. Further, many of these new applications stem from Ethernet-based services, and as a result transportation operators are welcoming a uniform Ethernet-based communication infrastructure. Realtime data sharing, automated safety measures, TCN (train control network), classical train management and a range of control systems are beneting from this homogeneous environment; a major shift is underway and many outdated, proprietary and country-specic systems...

Computer-on-Modules (COMs) are providing the base for transportation solutions in control and infotainment. Market applications range from passenger-facing systems such as multichannel audio and DVD playback, to operational systems such as navigation and safety. COMs are practically-complete computers mounted directly onto a carrier board, ideal for devices and applications where the design requires a small footprint with high performance, low power consumption, exibility of design, easy customization, or all of the above. Smaller form factors have recently been added to the standard; COMs...

to digital technology due to their greater sensitivity to light) are installed in each of the tunnels to be monitored; each unit features a Kontron CP307 3U CompactPCI board as its primary CPU. Each CPU processes enormous amounts of data, analyzing video images in real time, and simultaneously controlling the alert management system. Compiled data is stored for dened periods of time, and is further protected by either RAID-5 or RAID-10 technology date-, time- and location-stamp to ensure its legal value if necessary in court.

The Kontron HMITR rugged HMI display can be used in one of two versions, either with hard keys or with touch screen. The design meets the requirements for the driver‘s cab of the International Union of Railways (UIC), which calls for reducing costs through modularization of components, improving operational procedures and assists in generating cost savings in terms of driver training. The Kontron HMITR fullls these rigid railway cockpit standards including those related to smoke and re. Its compact design uses a minimum of space, providing a great advantage in the retrot and modernization...

Summary/Conclusion The growing importance on sustaining communities through effective mobility means transportation demands are booming like never before. China alone has committed 700 billion RMB annually (about $100 billion U.S.) to the expansion of its rail network; even the U.S. is stepping into high-speed rail with a $40 billion system being developed in California. The range of design opportunities and requirements is growing accordingly – applications run the gamut from conductor operations and terminals, automatic piloting, centralized control centers, safety monitoring, real-time...
