Infotainment with Wireless Streaming
Recognizing the rising expectations in mass transportation, bus manufacturers are stepping up to incorporate technology into buses for a better end user experience.
For an infotainment streaming application the functions of standard box PCs BL70S and BL70W have been combined to form a customized entertainment-focused version. The box PC delivers media content, such as films, music and online newspapers into long-distance coaches. Via an integrated Wi-Fi access point the prestored data is transmitted to the user's display in the coach, but can also be watched on the passenger's own mobile devices such as laptops and phones.
The conduction cooled box PC comes with integrated hot-pluggable storage shuttles, an integrated Ethernet switch with PoE support and of course complies with E-mark requirements for automotive applications.
Standard Components Used in this Example
The BL70S is a rugged, fanless EN 50155 railway and E-Mark automotive box computer, based on the Intel Core and Celeron families. It is used as train maintenance, surveillance and diagnosis computer, and - thanks to its built-in storage capacities - as railway video recorder and content server.
The BL70W is a rugged, fanless EN 50155 railway and E-Mark automotive box computer, based on the Intel Core and Celeron families. It is used as railway communication and management computer, and - thanks to its built-in multitude of wireless interfaces - as passenger information and internet access system for public transportation.
