Agent336 is a powerful embedded computer intended for the transport industry and has the connections necessary to integrate it into vehicles.
Axiomtek produces several embedded systems for the transport industry, and Agent336 is the newest model, equipped with the powerful NXP i.MX 8M processor (ARM® Cortex® A-53 architecture). The computer should be seen as a total solution for surveillance of car fleets with collection of position, usage and sensor data as well as management like dispatch and recalling of cars, messages for the drivers and so on.
LeveTop - cost-competitive UART control of displays
A new and interesting player on the market for display controllers. LeveTop has created a series of TFT-controllers with integrated MCU and hardware display accelerator, which enables control of TFT displays by UART commands from a small main processor that wouldn’t normally be able to drive a TFT-display.
Instead of having pictures, animations and so on for the user interface stored in the main system, they are placed in an SPI flash and are then called by UART commands sent to the controller when needed.
When there’s a long way to the nearest Internet connection, a GSM router is an obvious solution. NavigateWorx is a young company specializing in IIoT and M2M. They offer a series of industrial GSM routers equipped with clever features like cloud-based batch management and serial ports. The units have a wide temperature range of -40 to 75 °C and works with as much as 95% RH.
The specialists from Litemax® produce screens as well as computers in rugged designs, e.g. a compact 21.5” panel PC with IP68-rating made in extruded aluminum and steel.
IPPS-2118-KBL5-WS is a PC in a passively cooled, fully dust and waterproof design. The screen is optically bonded, and the brightness is 1600 cd/m2, the contrast 900:1. This enables usage in sunlight and at other lit locations. The normal temperature range is 0 – 50 °C, but an extended range of -20 – 50 °C is available. Thus, the machine is usable under tough conditions, e.g. industrial use, on board ships, in outdoor installations, and all other places where light and water must be expected.
Innodisk launches electronic brains in small form factors
One of the hot topics of our time is AI – Artificial Intelligence – and in that connection it
might be worth pulling out the good, old phrase “electronic brain”.
As the tasks that are solved by AI Vision become more and more complex, it takes specialized hardware and well-trimmed algorithms to do the job. When the algorithms work satisfyingly, more speed is usually required. That could be in connection with automated camera surveillance where a lot of people are present and you count passers-by, search for known criminals and keep an eye on assaults and brawls. Perhaps you wish to do it all at once.
