Computerized systems are increasingly used in all forms of transportation- providing a wide range of functions to improve safety and enhance passenger experience from positive train control in railways, in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI) in personal auto, taxis, and public buses, and fleet management to name just a few. I am providing links to some community posts on this topic that I think are particularly useful:
Train designers must install multiple systems to run and monitor onboard equipment, increase safety and reliability, enhance passenger comfort, and deliver new services. Explore a single board computer that delivers the reliability and performance to securely virtualize multiple rolling stock workloads.
The increasing complexity of vehicle electronics is driving higher development and service costs, as well as the potential for recalls. Explore how IoT-connected sensors help automakers spot anomalies, alert drivers, and identify opportunities for new services and features.
