In one application a rugged 3U CompactPCI system based on Intel Core architecture monitors the fuel consumption and calculates energy-optimized driving, with the data being sent to a standard driver desk display.
Railway Data Center menRDC - The One-Fits-It-All Solution:
Based on menRDC, applications like fleet management, energy management and driver assistance systems can be combined on a single general purpose platform, taking care of all kinds of efficiency management functions. Thanks to its scalability menRDC is able to host any desired mixture of operator and passenger service applications – PIS, surveillance, maintenance and diagnosis, efficiency management, vehicle-to-vehicle/land communication.
Standard Components Used in this Example
The DC15 is a rugged, fanless and maintenance-free human-machine interface (HMI) for the train driver cabin desk, interfacing for example as display control unit of the Computer Based Train Control system (CBTC) to the Automated Train Operation system (ATO).
The G25A is an x86 PC based embedded computer for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring the Intel Xeon D-1500 processor of the Broadwell-DE server family with up to 16 cores. The SBC is a COTS platform for virtualization in an Industrial Internet Of Things (IIOT) environment. The G25A is also part of the menRDC Railway Data Center.
The DC17 is a rugged, fanless and maintenance-free human-machine interface (HMI) for the train driver cabin desk, for example as the operator display for CCTV control, diagnosis and maintenance, or fleet management.
The MH70R open source railway server is the central component of the menRDC railway data center with an Intel Xeon D CPU board offering 10 Gb and Gb Ethernet, USB 3.0 as well as wireless communication and storage.
The BL51E is a rugged, fanless EN 50155 railway and automotive box computer for in-vehicle functions like Passenger Information Systems (PIS) and surveillance based on Intel Atom Processor E3900.
