Primary CPU of this new Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) is VIA EDEN ULV 500MHz, VIAC7-M 1GHz or VIAC7-M 1.5GHz with CX 700 Companion chipset (additional processing power for 3D graphics, multimedia, and streaming functions) and the x86 architecture allows this Mobile Computer to supply a remarkable flexibility and efficiency in computing power.
Secondary CPU AITP (Automotive Intensive Task Processor) supplies the necessary functionalities in the automotive field, like power management, Safe Shutdown, Wheel Pulses Odometer, Distance and Speed calculation, Wake-Up on Ring, Over-the-Air services for software and firmware updates.
The AITP is OTA programmable for remote automatic firmware upgrade, and is always powered ON; it can turn-ON and OFF the Device and all its peripherals.
The 3GMDT Plus Mobile Data Terminal supports the following operating systems:
IDEAL FOR FLEET MANAGEMENT AND JOB DISPATCHING
This vehicle mobile computer is the ideal choice for Fleet Management, Logistic and fleet tracking thanks to its GPRS / EDGE modem (optionally also UMTS) that allows very reliable communication with operating headquarters. The real time GPS vehicle tracking and positioning is assured by the high performance GPS U-Blox 5 receiver with 50 channels, and compatible with the new European positioning system GALILEO.
Both GPS and GPRS modules can be powered ON and OFF regardless of Microsoft Windows Operative System status.
An Hardware MUX Port is available which allows to send AT commands to the GPRS / EDGE modem even during a RAS connection (device connected to the Internet), for example to request connection status, signal diagnostic and modem statistics.
All the communication and tracking features are assured by the AITP processor even when the Device is powered OFF: the GPS and GPRS modules are managed by the AITP both for power supply and for communication.
CUSTOMIZABLE USER INTERFACE
The 6.4 inches 4:3 clear readable TFT Displays with VGA (640 x 480 resolution) allow to develop versatile and high accessible applications, thanks also to the integrated TouchScreen controller, and to the 5 keys with LEDs available.
The ambient light sensor allows to choose an optimal brightness of the display in any environmental light.
The power key is a Smart Power Button, completely programmable and used to perform several important tasks such as:
Can be also disabled or programmed to trigger Ghost Mode (fake shutdown).
TRIPLE BOOT FEATURE
Through this powerful functionality is possible to restore and update the entire system anytime, starting from user application up to the complete operating system and all the CPU firmwares.
The system is able to boot from three different disks:
Stealth mode is a special operating mode in which the system is working but the display is OFF.
The Device can withstand glitches at car start, or power loss problems thanks to the UPS Battery system, that is automatically recharged.
The AITP processor gives time to user applications and Windows to close gracefully and safely in case of sudden disconnection of the Main Power.
INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
The Device supplies a wide range of communication channels with the external environment: two USB Host and up to 8 Serial Ports.
The special programmable digital inputs and outputs allow to control devices and read signals coming from generic external equipments.
A Build-In RGB Video Grabber Input can be used to acquire Analog video streaming and save images coming from a security camera, or to show realtime fluid videos (Full screen or window overlay mode).
A Device digital output is dedicated to power-ON the camera and its IR LEDs if needed. After connecting an external source, videos can be shown on a secondary VGA display, for example for advertising or leisure.
