In-vehicle ruggedised network video recorders

Advantech will be demonstrating its application-ready building blocks for satellite navigation seconded video processing solutions at Innotrans; the world’s largest trade fair for rail transport. They are designed, pre-tested and verified to build video data based fleet monitoring and surveillance solutions – including local video analytics such as movement detection and recording storage – as well as live video based infotainment systems that offer augmented reality functions like adding house numbers or location-based advertisements in real-time to the video stream.

All global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) such as GPS, GLONASS or Galileo as well as cellular and satellite links for remote communication are supported. Taxis, buses and trains, even auto rallies in deserts can therefore be tracked, video-monitored and served with augmented reality information.

The system building blocks of the solution include the company’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable ARK-V&S series of in-vehicle ruggedised network video recorders (NVR), cameras from cooperation partners as well as RTSoft’s Montrack software solution for continuous monitoring of vehicles and mobile objects. According to the company, these pre-tested and verified building blocks ensure that customers can get GNSS and video based fleet monitoring solutions and augmented reality infotainment up and running quickly.
