NEXCOM – Your Top Choice of Railway Computer
To usher in the public transit service reinvigoration, NEXCOM is propelling the proliferation of in-vehicle telematics with rugged mobile computing solutions to help the carriers exploit data goldmines to confront challenges in daily efficiency, safety and to drive continuous operational improvement. NEXCOM Mobile Computing Solutions (MCS) Business Unit provides the richest product lines for on-board edge devices include AI edge telematics series, in-vehicle computer, railway computer, vehicle mount computer (all-in-one panel PC), and monitors to fulfill time-to-market transport projects and support solution providers mainly in public transit bus & rail, first response, and material handling applications.
The railway computers (nROK and aROK family), in delivering a variety of powerful in-train CPU-GPU combination, optional communication modules, complex telematics purposes and abundant storage suitable for data gateway, surveillance, PIS, Wi-Fi Router, media server and AI computing applications. Its purposeful design protects components from adverse heat, power, and vibration/shock conditions and compliant to EN50155 and EN45545 standard.
Data Gateway, Communication Hub (Wi-Fi Router) and Media Center
NEXCOM’s series of railway computers used as a data gateway, featured multi adaptable expansion slots for cellular connectivity and alternative options. Each module’s network redundancy allows you to swap operators in case one signal is weak, in instances such as traveling through tunnels and crossing borders, thereby maintaining seamless connectivity and saving potential roaming costs. This even allows you to concurrently join independent WWAN networks so that you can multitask anywhere and anytime, worry-free.
Whilst used as a mobile communication hub, the models are able to offer plenty of WWAN modules and from two to ten SIM card slots, thus providing extra bandwidth while allowing railway mobile flexibility. You can also employ two slots as private and public WLAN AP modules and turn into Wi-Fi router applications. The private WLAN not only securely protects against data breaches but can likewise connect IP cameras to the cloud for data transfer to a centralized monitoring center, while the public WLAN allows passengers on rolling stock vehicles to easily access the Internet via Wi-Fi.
In terms of multimedia entertainment, passengers benefitted tremendously from network connectivity: passengers are able to view infotainment and enjoy video streaming services on seatback screens and handheld devices. The operator could even remotely manage content from the cloud and perform back-end big data analysis on customer preferences, allowing them to refresh and push more relevant content. Moreover, up to four SATA SSDs were also accessible for media storage.
NEXCOM introduces the fundamental solution to public safety, a rugged mobile computer specifically designed to connect with IP surveillance cameras for monitoring purposes. To provide hardware connectivity with its two and up to eight 802.3af/at PoE ports, which easily carry power and data for devices such as surveillance cameras. It also assists with centralized fleet management via cloud, GPS, and Wi-Fi. By selected models from the storage capacity up to 2~6 accessible 2.5” SSD to restore video clips from IP surveillance cameras and utilize the mSATA for OS and VMS software, and an extra SD memory card similarly serve as backup for video clips and import/export configurations.
AI Edge Computing
In delivering a variety of powerful in-train AI recognition and machine vision applications, NEXCOM MCS offers powerful CPU-GPU combinations, by models, maximize AI inference capabilities with the PCIe expansion interfaces, especially appropriate for additional GigE frame grabber (PCIe x4), USB 3.0 Vision interface, and discrete graphics engine cards (PCIe x16). In conjunction with optional high-resolution GigE, USB, or PoE cameras, you can realize the potential of railway AI and intelligent surveillance in on-track safety (track obstacle/intrusion inspection, traffic light, and sign recognition), in-cabin safety (luggage monitoring, people counting, passenger load monitoring, abandoned object detection), and predictive maintenance (pantograph inspection) uses.
