The Intel Core 2 Duo 1.06GHz CPU of the Nitro+ Tablet PC allows this Mobile Computer to supply a remarkable flexibility and extreme efficiency in computing power.

The Secondary AITP (Automotive Intensive Task Processor) CPU inside to the Docking Station 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 can be always powered ON; it can turn ON and OFF the Device and all its peripherals.


The Nitro+ provides DVR functionalities (Digital Video Recorder) through the 3 Independent Channel Video Grabber able to perform MPEG4 and H264 compression in PAL/NTSC format up to 25 fps refresh rate.

The power of the three ARM CPUs for the video coding and compression with the flexibility of Windows Embedded Standard Operative System, allows to use this Device to performs any video surveillance and accident data recorder requests (such as cyclic recording, recording on alarm event, remote transfer of real-time video and historical videos).

In fact the advanced Microsoft Windows Operative System and the Digitax libraries allow to develop simple and fast applications in the most popular programming languages (such as Java, qT, C/C++, C# .NET, VB .NET) capable of handling Over-IP video streams.


The System represents the state-of-the-art device for on-site operation, job dispatching and fleets management thanks to the Nitro+ Tablet PC combined with the Docking Station.

The two HSUPA modems inside of the Tablet PC and inside of the Docking Station allow very reliable and high speed communications with operating headquarters for device tracking and remote real-time video viewing/storing.

The vehicle is located by the high performance U-Blox 6 GPS receiver inside of the Docking Station with 50 channels, over 2 million of correlators and compatible with the new European positioning system GALILEO.

The Rugged Nitro+ Tablet PC with IP54 protection level is able to perform georeferenced videos and photos through the High Resolution WebCam and the U-Blox 6 GPS Receiver embedded.

The privacy policies are guaranteed by the Finger Print Biometric access control.

All the vehicle communication and autonomous tracking features are assured by the AITP processor even when the Nitro+ Tablet PC is outside of the Docking Station: the GPS and Modem modules inside of the Docking Station are managed by the AITP both for power supply and for communication.


The Device supplies a wide range of communication channels with the external environment. The three RS232 / RS422 / RS485 ports and the three power outputs allow the device to manage the power and control the Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) of the cameras.

The others special programmable digital inputs and outputs allow to control devices and read signals coming from generic external equipments.


Through this powerful functionality is possible to restore and to 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 two diff erent disks:

  • SSD Disk, used for operative system, applications and data;
  • Compact Flash card for large data storage (large maps, images, movies, logs) and for service (system initialization or Full System restore).


Stealth mode is a special operating mode in which the system is working but the display is OFF. This feature can be useful in several situations:

  • Driver Control: System has also the wake up on ring feature, so at the central it is possible to remotely turn ON the device (also in stealth mode so nobody can see that it is starting) in order to check vehicle position, internal audio listening and other data.
  • Ghost Mode: It is possible to set the device so that after pressing the shutdown button the system goes on stealth mode instead of turning OFF. This feature is useful if you want the device to remain always ON (it turns OFF only the display, reducing power consumption) or in an alarm situation.
  • Alarm managing: If system is OFF and alarm button is pressed the system can be started in stealth mode, so nobody can see that the system starts. On this special start the system can be programmed for example to send an alarm message to the central, GPS position or also screenshots or audio.
