WiFi at the depot: how to automate the data collection ?

To provide even more information and safety to users but also to manage efficiently their fleet, operators need to exchange operating data (video surveillance, ticketing, passenger counting, PIS…) with buses and trams at the depot.

In this perspective, ACKSYS’ rugged range of WiFi products allows a rapid and automatic transfer of large volumes of data :

> VEHICLES CAN LOAD AND OFFLOAD OPERATING DATA THROUGH THE WIRELESS NETWORK.

To enable simultaneous, efficient and reliable data transfers of all Ethernet devices, provided by different suppliers and integrated into each vehicle, ACKSYS’ solution offers advanced functions to mutualize multiple streams on a single radio link, simplifying the deployment and allowing operating and maintenance costs reduction.

APPLICATION HIGHLIGHTS

SMART DEPLOYMENT

- WaveManager : deployment support & centralized management software
- Streams mutualization : a single embedded WiFi device, accessible to all the vehicle’s equipment (streams isolation and prioritization)
- Identical IP addressing scheme in all vehicles without interconnection risks (advanced routing & filtering functions)
- Deployment of a wireless backbone at the depot or along the track (multi-radios access points)

MOBILITY

- High speed data transfer in motion (fast roaming <30 ms)
- Seamless 4G LTE<> WiFi roaming (“mobile IP” available soon)

ADAPTED DESIGN FOR BUS, TRAMWAY AND GROUND USE

- Rugged and outdoor solutions
- Extended operating temperature (up to -40°C and + 75°C depending on models)
- RJ45, M12 or custom connectors
- E-marked devices (bus)
- EN50155 (IEC61373) / EN50121-3-2 compliant (tram)
- EN61373 (shocks/vibrations)
