Department of Transportation Deploys ITS over Fiber Gigabit Ethernet

Read how the state DOT planned to centralize traffic control/monitoring of highways (including roads, bridges, and tunnels) across the state’s 5 central TMCs.

China Highways Deploy HD IP Surveillance

The “Safe City” program, launched nationwide in 2006, has triggered the installation of millions of surveillance cameras across China in over 600 cities. Surveillance systems are increasingly implementing high-definition IP cameras and many have also deployed PoE-based IP cameras to take advantage of simple deployment, cost-effectiveness, and easy maintenance.

Southern Italian Communities Converge Video Surveillance via IP-Based Infrastructure

The Italian government and a number of local municipalities in southern Italy, including Lecce, Mural, and San Pietro, decided to increase their safety and security facilities with the largest IP video surveillance framework ever deployed in Italy.

World’s 5th Longest Tunnel Deploys Ethernet for Traffic Control System

Taiwan’s Hsuehshan Tunnel is the second longest road tunnel in Southeast Asia (fifth longest in the world) and is composed of 3 independent tunnels (one pilot tunnel, one West-bound tunnel, and one East-bound tunnel) stretching 12.9 kilometers through Hsuehshan Mountain, the second highest mountain in East Asia.

China Province Implements Automated Traffic Enforcement

Jiangsu province is home to almost 80 million Chinese residents and government officials decided to install electronic citation systems to discourage traffic violation, assuring the safety of drivers and pedestrians at highly congested traffic intersections.

Video Transmission over IEEE 802.11n WAN for Bus Surveillance

A transportation company in Hawaii serves thousands of travelers each day across well over 100 routes each week with approximately 50 bus vehicles operating out of 2 bus depots...

Automatically Create Error-free Inter-carriage Connections

WDS or Wireless Distribution System provides data connectivity across train carriages using wireless. Undesirably, this system is has inadequate security, is bandwidth constrained and needs operator manual re-provisioning whenever the formation of the train carriages changes. This white paper illustrates how Moxa’s Auto Carriage Connection or ACC protocol eliminates these issues.

Choosing the Ideal Computers for Rolling Stock Applications

There are many rolling stock applications, each of which has specific requirements. This white paper is a guide to choosing the ideal computer for your rolling stock applications.

How to Build Industrial Computers that Resist Vibration and Shock

This white paper first explains some background about the physics behind vibration and shock, and then explores the specific mechanisms and technology used to build an industrial computer with high resilience against these harsh conditions.

Uninterrupted Train-to Ground Communications with Sub-50 ms Turbo Roaming

The architecture of 802.11 ground to train data communications requires technology that can provide uninterrupted data streams for the onboard requirements. This white paper discusses the solutions to maintain seamless connectivity at high speeds through such technology as Moxa’s Turbo Roaming deployed with Wide Area Controllers (WACs), specialized handoff parameters that can be effectively tweaked, and multiple redundancy measures to provide failsafe data links.

3 Key Elements of a Robust Intelligent Transportation Network

In this article, we will discuss solutions to ensure ITS network reliability, efficient management of ITS operation and maintenance, as well as current ITS industry trends and best practices.

How to choose an outdoor IP camera

CCTV surveillance cameras are now a common sight in cities around the world, with cameras used at major intersections to catch speeders and would-be runners of red lights. However, as many drivers have learned, outdoor cameras have a high failure rate, and consequently only a fraction of the cameras installed are actually operational.

Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure: Key Selection Criteria

Due to the rapid rate by which networking technology is advancing, it is no wonder that selecting compatible and updated components can be difficult even for the most experienced automation engineers. With its focus on industrial networking, Moxa offers a broad range of Ethernet solutions well-suited for the demands and conditions required in any industrial automation network.

Transmission of Video Images for Transportation Management Systems

A typical Transportation Management System requires installing many video cameras. For example, it is now commonplace to see cameras located at regular intervals along the roadside when traveling on the highway. However, the problem faced by system administrators is that most of the cameras could be located up to several miles from the Central Traffic Control Center.

Redundant Ring Technology for Industrial Ethernet Applications

“Redundancy” is now one of the most important aspects of the industrial automation networks used for applications such as power utilities, transportation, and surveillance. In this white paper, we first discuss traditional redundant technology, including their network topologies and limitations. Next, we introduce “redundant ring” technology, and point out the advantages that redundant rings have over traditional systems.
