Passenger Information SystemsInfotainment solutions give passengers orientation regarding stops, schedules and routes, hints for changing trains, short-term changes of the route or delays. They also provide entertainment, for instance by displaying news of the day and the weather forecast or by playing movies and music. Content servers are used to store those data and programs. They connect to the screens in the vehicle via wired LAN or WLAN. gas laws Apart from displaying pictures, text and audio data, these systems can also control TV or radio programs. Content servers connect to the outside world, e.g. the depot, to receive up-to-date information while travelling.

Modular 19" systems like 3U CompactPCI or CompactPCI Serial are ideal for this type of application because they are flexible with regard to the board and feature combination and they are maintenance-friendly, e.g., offering hot-plug functionality. In combination with content servers, intelligent display computers are increasingly used to show the content. Infotainment computerstypically require full EN 50155 compliance.

In another application, a combination of several display computers and one content server is used. With a train unit of up to 18 cars and a maximum train length of then 315m, every car typically contains between two to six displays. The 15" display computers used here are customized versions of the DC1 device. They are based on the Intel Atom, featuring a typical power consumption of less than 27 Watts. The fanless units apply conductive cooling to dissipate the heat to the outside of the housing, thus reaching operation temperature class Tx with -40 to +70°C. e payment electricity bill up All I/O signals are concentrated at the back via a customized rear mounting plate which enables direct wall mounting using a customer-specific snap-in solution.

In a high-speed train application, twocustom display computers from the same DC1 family with 19" wide screen displays are mounted to a bracket back to back. Both are protected by a special housing and a vandal-proof glass pane. In addition to the standard Ethernet and USB interfaces they offer also HD audio. Two of the Ethernet ports enable daisy chaining of several units. Ethernet frames are forwarded within less than 500 ns and bypassed even when the unit is in powerless state.

Diagnosis and Maintenance SystemsIn one application, a predictive maintenance system is combined with passenger information services like pending seat reservation, current trip information and potential connections. The platform takes care of all data transfer between individual trains and the railway company's central servers via UMTS/LTE, WLAN and GPS. The system is based on standard 3U CompactPCI components like Intel Core based embedded single-board computers, PCI Express Mini Card carriers providing the wireless functionality and an interface card for GPS and serial I/O.

menRDC can be used to extend functions of a diagnosis server towards a complete maintenance station, exchanging and comparing continuously data with a central maintenance center and allowing to perform also predictive maintenance. 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.

Passenger Information and Security ServicesPIS and entertainment solutions give passengers orientation regarding stops, schedules and routes, hints for changing trains, short-term changes of the route or delays. They also provide the news of the day and the weather forecast or play movies and music. Content servers are used to store those data and programs. They connect to the screens in the vehicle via wired LAN or WLAN. Apart from displaying pictures, text and audio data, these systems can also control TV or radio programs. electricity kwh cost uk Content servers connect to the outside world, e.g. the depot, to receive up-to-date information while travelling.

In one application, a 3U Intel Core based standard CompactPCI system is used as PIS platform and central content server, connecting to customized Intel Atom based 15? information display computers. With a train unit of up to 18 cars and a maximum train length of then 315m, every car typically contains between two to six displays. All devices operate fanless according to operation temperature class Tx (-40 to +70/+85°C).

Internet access points in a train provide convenience functions to passengers such as mobile office, telephony, information and entertainment. electricity in water At the same time, they are essential to exchange train diagnosis data with the depot, get route information or transmit data from surveillance systems. Communication inside the vehicle is typically based on Ethernet TCP/IP or UDP/IP protocols and connection to the outside world on wireless interfaces from WLAN via GSM-R to LTE.

In one installation, the Internet access, the train surveillance and the communication between the wagons are controlled via satellite. One standard 3U CompactPCI system houses three independent Intel Core based computer units on separate backplanes and with separate power supplies: A satellite system with three CPU cards, a content server with one CPU card and a side card for the RAID system, and a storage server with four CPU cards.

In one application, four digital video recorder units and two video display servers are used per train set, each housed in its individual standard 3U CompactPCI rack based on Intel Core single-board computers. In another application, a wireless embedded network controller box combines passenger information with security applications. Both applications use UIC 612 compliant control displays operating with low-power AMD architecture.

Using menRDC, typical passenger service offerings like passenger information (PIS), entertainment, wireless access to Internet on train, video surveillance and the recording and storage of all relevant data around those services can be hosted on a single computer platform. 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.

Advanced Train Management SystemATMS is designed to support the objectives of the Australian Rail Track Corporation, improving rail network capacity, operational flexibility, train service availability, transit times, rail safety and system reliability. The new nationwide system includes functions like provision of the precise location of trains both front and rear, provision of switch settings and automatic route clearances, replacement of trackside signaling with in-locomotive displays of authorities to drivers and enforcement of authorities on each locomotive if a train is at risk of exceeding its authority.

The safety-critical computer system which partitions the vital and non-vital applications in one single platform is built to a high degree with standard COTS products. It is based on a CompactPCI – CompactPCI Serial hybrid configuration and is certifiable up to SIL 4. The critical part runs on a safe operating system and consists of safe embedded single-board computers designed for deterministic operation and offering extensive BITE features. Each safe SBC runs three PowerPC processors in lockstep mode with 2oo3 voting implemented in FPGA and software-assisted resynchronization, while its triple-redundant dynamic memory automatically corrects hardware faults. The non-critical part of the system runs Linux and consists of two 3U CompactPCI PlusIO Intel Core based SBCs, connecting to an Ethernet switch and four hard disk shuttles.

In one application a 3U CompactPCI Intel based system with conductive cooling supports an existing custom ATO system. An onboard FPGA carries all customer-specific interfaces as IP cores. Analog signal functions have been added by using standard M-Module mezzanine cards. A similar OBU (On Board Unit) application for the American PTC (Positive Train Control) system uses an AAR compliant CompactPCI system with conductive cooling and IP65 protection class.

In one driverless underground application, up to 500 mobile and stationary control and management systems are needed to monitor the train line. The 3U CompactPCI Intel based control and monitoring system provides a response channel that allows the permanent transmission of status data of the vehicles back to the control center. gas in oil briggs and stratton engine It consists of five independent units forming two 1oo2 systems and one separate system for communication and data storage. Additional functions like digital I/O, analog outputs, counter pulses, a radar sensor to pick up data from the route sensors etc. are implemented in the on-board FPGA.
