Application Examples

Earth Image Acquisition

A COTS computer delivers the required processing performance and data throughput for this digital aerial camera control system.


Passenger Information and Security Services

PIS and entertainment solutions give passengers orientation regarding stops, schedules and routes, hints for changing trains, short-term changes of the route or delays.


Diagnosis and Maintenance Systems

In one application, a predictive maintenance system is combined with passenger information services like pending seat reservation, current trip information and potential connections.


Vehicle-to-Vehicle/Land-Communication

In one application the train exchanges diagnosis data with the depot, gets route information and transmits data from its surveillance systems.


Efficiency Management

Based on menRDC, applications like fleet management, energy management and driver assistance systems can be combined on a single general purpose platform, taking care of all kinds of efficiency management functions.


CPCI Serial Collision Avoidance System

This CompactPCI-Serial-based UAV system is used for optical control of the air space for collision avoidance with civil aircraft.
