Moxa Computer Reduces Network Latency, Increases Availability of Intelligent Transportion Systems
Moxa V2403C Collects Roadside Sensor and Camera Data.
To maintain the safe, smooth flow of vehicles across roads, tunnels, and bridges, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) rely on data for traffic conditions, speed, and density, as well as weather reports and surveillance videos. Moxa makes this possible with networking solutions that process and store real-time ITS information, helping to reduce latency, increase availability, and lower data communication and storage costs.
At the center of the Moxa ITS solution is the Moxa V2403C, a cutting-edge computing platform that acts as a roadside unit for collecting data from sensors and IP surveillance cameras, plus will bridge via a Moxa managed switch to ITS servers in Traffic Control Centers that serve as hubs for regional emergency response and incident management operations. Moxa's innovation comes at a time when the global ITS market is expected to reach over $50 billion (USD) by 2030.
Moxa V2403C computers comply with EN 50121-4, E1 mark, and ISO- 7637-2 standards, qualifying them for rail-wayside and in-vehicle (except trains) applications. Exceptionally rugged, these industrial-grade computers withstand challenging environmental conditions in operating temperatures as diverse as -40 to 70˚ C (-40° to 158° F). They have also earned the MIL-STD-810G specification that put the V2403C through 29 separate tests against shock, vibration, heat, cold, humidity, and more.
Built around an Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 or Celeron® processor, Moxa V2403C embedded computers deliver improved performance by featuring up to 32 GB RAM, one mSATA slot, and two HDD/SSD for storage expansion. A rich set of interfaces, including 4 gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, 4 DIs, 4 DOs, and 4 USB 3.0 ports, provide versatility and cost savings for system integrators. Also, connecting monitors is plug-and-play easy thanks to the computer's DisplayPort and HDMI outputs with 4K resolution.
Because reliable connections and good power management are crucial to in-vehicle and roadside applications, Moxa V2403C computers feature 2 mPCIe wireless expansion slots and 4 SIM-card slots to establish redundant LTE/Wi-Fi connectivity. Regarding power management, startup and shutdown delay mechanisms help avoid system malfunction and damage. An externally accessible rotary switch on the front panel can be adjusted to configure power ignition on/off delays for in-vehicle applications. This feature is vital to protect the computer against high/low pulses and waveforms, plus ensure the longevity of batteries and complete data preservation prior to an unplanned shutdown.
