Server-Grade Mobile Computer Puts Vehicles Under Close Surveillance


Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — NEXCOM has released the in-vehicle computer VTC 7200 series to keep vehicles under close watch. Featuring server-grade functionality, the VTC 7200 series have broad applications including real-time remote video streaming, license-plate recognition, fleet telematics, and in-vehicle infotainment. The VTC 7200 series is ideal for use in public transits, law enforcement, and handling and transportation of dangerous and valuable items.

The VTC 7200 series encompasses three powerful hardware platforms based on the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors—VTC 7200-BK, VTC 7210-BK and VTC 7220-BK. Packed with high computing performance and superb graphics capabilities, the VTC 7200 series can decode multiple video streams to help a driver monitor vehicle's surroundings and interior from multiple angles; it can read license plates to help police identify a vehicle of interest; it can also be used as bus signage to keep passengers informed and entertained.

Designed for vehicle applications, the in-vehicle computer series is outfitted with GPS, G sensor, digital inputs and outputs, and CAN 2.0B with optional OBD II support. In addition to tracking vehicle location and movement, the VTC 7200 series can harness a wide variety of dynamic vehicle information, including vehicle health status, a truck's payload capacity, and tank temperature. The VTC 7200 series can help exam a vehicle from the inside out to improve fuel efficiency, to reduce vehicle wear and tear, and to enhance driving safety.

Furthermore, the videos and information can be stored locally and shared with a remote center. The in-vehicle computer series can connect to up to four networks with a combination of 3.5G, LTE, and Wi-Fi for high-speed transmission of large volumes of data, allowing a dispatcher to remotely monitor a vehicle, to talk to a driver if necessary and better still, to wake the in-vehicle computer with SMS if it is turned off. As for local storage, the VTC 7200 series, ranked the highest for vibration durability among all VTC models, can provide large storage capacity with two swappable HDDs, slashing storage cost for users.

The VTC 7200 series is available with a choice of 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4650U, i5-4300U, and i3-4010U processors. Two PoE switches, the 4-port VES S30-4S and 8-port VES S30-8S, are available as companion devices to simplify the connection of peripherals.
