In recent years, there are some waste collection companies beginning the adoption of digital technology to optimize their assets and investments. Since fleets and drivers are critical for the success of such business, it is essential to equip them with an onboard vehicle computer that can maximize route planning, ensure safety on roads, and help perform collections punctually. The implementation of such device is meant to replace manual routing so that the locations for dispatch can be automated to reduce unnecessary mileage, lower carbon footprint and improve customer satisfaction.
Practical implementations of Lanner's technology in a range of environments and applications.
The demand for higher-level security has been the driving force for the populated installations of surveillance cameras in mission-critical environments, such as airports, banks, public transits, and state-owned institutions, and IP cameras are the preferred choice over conventional CCTV types due to ease of deployments. However, when there are saturated amount of IP cameras, there are perhaps billions of video data captured by these surveillance devices on a daily basis. This will definitely cause latency for video analytics, when IP cameras transfer the captured videos through Internet protocols.
Industry 4.0’s promising technology trends encompass areas and applications such as the Internet of Things, cyber security, the cloud datacenter, horizontal/vertical system integration, data mining/analytics, AR, VR, 3D printing and robotics; what all these technologies have in common is that they must rely on some sort of networking architecture/framework in order to deliver the innovation, profits, benefits and convenience promised.
With advancements in technology, the role of school buses has become more and more comprehensive, from merely transporting children to security incorporated vehicles. In fact, location-based tracking, attendance assurance and real-time video surveillance of both interior and exterior of the vehicle are among the most discussed requirements for school bus safety, due to risks regarding behavioral concerns of drivers and students while in transit. With the safety concerns in mind, educational organizations are adopting security technologies in their school buses to provide visibility of drivers and children, as well as the GPS/RFID tracking system to keep track of bus/student footprints.
Mission critical workforces and vehicles in fields of law enforcement, fire fighters, ambulance, public transit and rescue teams are often working in remotely hazardous areas where network signals might be poor. However, they have become highly dependent on wireless networks in order to perform their works right. For instance, ambulance staff needs wireless networks to send the video images of the patient to the dispatching hospitals in order to prepare the right treatments. If they experience poor signal or interruption to their network communication, they cannot perform certain duties.
Digital retailing, which aims to influence all in-store patrons’ buying behavior by connecting and appealing to human emotions and impulses, is the by-product of today’s always-connected economy. The use of various IoT applications such as VoIP, digital signage, interactive kiosk, DVR and in-store entertainment are instrumental in enhancing sales; and network applications such private cloud vpn, firewall and other network security features are required for public/private/guest network access and secure payment processing.
