ADLINK Technology, Inc. has released its latest rugged, fanless NVIDIA Quadro embedded AIoT (AI and IoT) platform, the PIS-5500, designed for real-time video/graphics analytics applications in the rail industry.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are being adopted globally by all industries to drive efficiency, improve productivity and reduce costs. The rail industry is no exception. Fueled by intelligence from AI-driven systems and applications, railway operations are becoming safer, smarter and more reliable, significantly enhancing passenger travel experience and freight logistics services. These AI-driven applications only function with proper data input that is collected by massive numbers of Internet of Things (IoT) devices installed in stations, on trains, and along tracks. A successful implementation of such rail applications requires a seamless integration of AI and IoT technologies. By leveraging more than 20 years of expertise in developing highly reliable and available embedded computing systems, ADLINK brings advanced AIoT solutions to rail transportation, enabling customers in developing a variety of applications that can deliver true value and performance.
Powered by an Intel® Core™ i7 processor and integrated NVIDIA Quadro GPGPU module, ADLINK’s EN50155 certified PIS-5500 AIoT Platform is not only ruggedized for both wayside and onboard deployment with its wide range DC input and isolated I/O design, but also provides an ideal edge solution for real-time video/graphic analysis applications that are vital to today's increasingly complex railroad operations. The target applications include but are not limited to:
· Passenger Information Systems
· Railroad Intrusion Detection
· Train Station Surveillance
· Onboard Video Security
· Railroad Hazard Detection
