In-vehicle Computer Solutions

In-vehicle Computer Solutions

BVM can provide a variety of computing solutions for harsh environment, inclusive of roadside & in vehicles applications. BVM’s work has been involved with working in and around vehicle control centre’s, fleet management and vehicle monitoring (ANPR). BVM provide both standard OEM and customised (with pre-requisite certifications in place such as compliance and E-Mark ; ISO 7637 certification) to meet the demands of information handling required by the intelligent system within the vehicle – or indeed, to support highway safety. 

Our vehicle-based solutions include essential features such as:

Additionally, features such as the availability to communicate via 3G, 4G, or 5G cellular connectivity (as well as WiFi and Bluetooth) are available with BVM solutions. Standard locational features such as GNSS – and the ability to be powered over ethernet (PoE) are also available as standard features on our solutions.

We offer a variety of hardware platforms:

In-Vehicle System PCs

Embedded system PC’s (box PC’s) for the supporting of DVR or ANPR applications. We supply systems that provide efficiencies in the handling of high volume data & HD imagery where their communication over networks is key, regarding speed of speed of transfer, integrity of data and reliability of available up time.

AI-based Transport Solutions

Artificial intelligence (AI) is being implemented in various industries to improve efficiency, reduce costs and enhance safety. One of the areas where AI is being extensively used is the transportation industry. AI-powered technologies such as autonomous vehicles, logistics and supply chain management and air transportation are being developed and implemented to optimize delivery schedules and routes, reduce transportation costs, improve delivery times, enhance safety and provide more personalized and efficient customer service. AI is expected to revolutionize the transportation industry and bring significant changes in how transportation systems work.

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence in Transportation and the SMART City

Here are a few examples of how artificial intelligence (AI) is being used in transportation and the smart city:

  • Autonomous vehicles: AI enables cars, trucks, buses, and drones to operate autonomously, handling navigation, obstacle avoidance, and route decision-making to enhance travel efficiency.
  • Traffic management: AI analyzes sensor data to optimize traffic flow and minimize congestion, including traffic light adjustments and vehicle rerouting.
  • Public transportation: AI improves public transit by optimizing routes and schedules, reducing costs, and delivering real-time passenger updates on delays and disruptions.
  • Logistics and supply chain management: AI streamlines supply chains by optimizing goods flow, routing trucks, and selecting efficient warehouse operations.
  • Energy management: AI increases building efficiencies and cuts costs by regulating heating, cooling, and electricity distribution.
  • Environmental monitoring: AI monitors environmental conditions, analyzing data like air quality and wildlife movements to identify public health or ecological trends.

The hardware required to support artificial intelligence (AI) can vary depending on the specific  application and the type of AI being used. Some AI algorithms are computationally intensive and require powerful hardware to run effectively.

Deep learning algorithms, which are used for tasks such as image and speech recognition, typically require specialised hardware such as graphics processing units (GPUs) to run efficiently. GPUs are designed to perform the complex matrix calculations that are required for deep learning – and they can be much faster than traditional central processing units (CPUs) at these types of tasks.

Other types of AI, such as rule-based systems, may not require as much computational power and can be run on standard CPUs.
