In recent years, the incidents of attempted terror attacks on metro systems have increased at a global level. To assure the safety of the passengers, video surveillance systems for public transit setting seem to be the immediate solution. Being the country with world’s most complicated transit network and highest passenger volume, the metro operators in Japan has initiated a plan to install thousands of surveillance cameras in metro trains for security and safety purposes. To coordinate all the cameras, a rugged and reliable video surveillance gateway for metro system is needed to meet the requirements for integration of multiple IP cameras in order to perform mobile video monitoring with HD resolution.
Practical implementations of Lanner's technology in a range of environments and applications.
After a series of high-profile cyber security incidents on critical infrastructures, governments and enterprises of such facilities have taken malwares seriously into considerations. Apparently, the malwares or ransomware over the past couple years, such as Stuxnet, WannaCry and Crash Override, have publically exposed the vulnerability of SCADA Networks or Industrial Control Systems in today’s power grid automation, petroleum sites and other critical infrastructures.
As more ships are being connected to broadband internet through either VSAT bands, L-band or 3G/4G/LTE mobile phone networks, there has been a significant rise in the demand for integrated gateway solutions capable of not only managing vessel voice and data communications but also mitigating cyber risks.
Passengers on-the-go always demand real-time schedule updates and infotainment, and this has driven the widespread deployments of in-train/in-bus PIS (Passenger Information System). The automated PIS delivers audio-visual information such as updated arrival and departure times, potential delays, alternative plans, local weather, news and some entertainment and advertising. Meanwhile, the system must be constantly diagnosed to ensure playback serviceability and reduce maintenance efforts.
The manufacturing sector is facing challenges by increasing measures on traceability and regulation compliances. Manufacturers are demanded for complete visibility of their supply train, including the origins, make, and origins of the goods they receive from the suppliers. On the other hand, today’s consumer-driven market escalades the demands for high precision and efficiencies in the production phases. Therefore, automated logistic systems combined with machine visions and robotic arms are more precise and faster for repetitive routines, such as container-fill level, seals, label check, unit counting and barcodes, than traditional manual packaging and sorting. To accomplish the integration of machine visions and robotic arms, a high-performing embedded computing system is required to drive robotic guidance and vision inspection technology in order to improve traceability, automated sorting and inventory tracking.
Most of the modern multi-story green buildings come with BAS (building automation system) for smart control of air circulation, water conservation and building climates. That is the reason why BAS-empowered buildings are sometimes referred to “smart buildings”. The BAS is a distributed control system based on computer networking to integrate monitoring and control subsystems, including HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), lighting, fire, security, humidity and other significant factors to reduce energy consumption while maintaining the comforts for the residents.
