Buses, patrol cars and other vehicles can now do a lot more with onboard system than just store video and data. Taiwan-based Lanner Inc. has unleashed its LEC-5520, a rugged embedded system built on an Intel Atom CPU with WiFi, video transmission over 3G networks, GPS, four-channel real-time H.264 video capture and hardware compression.
Lanner LEC-5520 That lets headquarters track its fleets with four security cameras, while supplying information to the driver and entertainment to the passengers.
“The LEC-5520 is carefully designed to incorporate industrial electrical and mechanical features that make this box as rugged as possible,” said Eric Chiu, Lanner embedded computing director. “With the added features of GPS modules, 3G cellular communication and WiFi, the LEC-5520 is truly an ideal platform for any intelligent transportation application. The addition an FCC CE certification help assure our customers of Lanner’s manufacturing and QA processes.”
Video is captured through 4 BNC analog inputs.
The platform is built around the 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor. And its fanless design means less noise and more reliability.
Besides the I/O for the DVR, the platform has both HDMI and VGA video outputs, along with Gigabit Ethenet. It allows a wide power input range (10-36V), dual power in via DC jack and Phoenix contact, and 12V DC / 1Amp out to power peripherals such as cameras and sensors.
Other hardware specifications include an internal 2.5-inch hard drive bay, CompactFlash socket, four USB 2.0 ports, two high speed serial UARTs, an RS-485 serial port, alarm/relay, and 1 GB DDR2 memory IC onboard (expandable to 2 GB via So-DIMM).
The EyeShot 2000 Control Panel software provides basic features for camera control, PTZ, file storage and streaming, as well as advanced features including motion detection, night detection and scalable video coding.
