DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Oct., 2013 /PRNewswire/ — NEXCOM’s in-vehicle computer, VTC 1010, provides the performance, reliability and scalability required to build a connected vehicle that can address the needs of fleet management. Based on the Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 product family (formerly codenamed “Bay Trail”), VTC 1010 features wide operating temperature range, dual WWAN and SIM, built-in GPS with optional dead-reckoning, intelligent vehicle power management and four mini-PCIe expansions. VTC 1010 can deliver the telematics technology for real-time voice and data communication, vehicle tracking and navigation, mobile video surveillance as well as in-vehicle infotainment.
The VTC 1010 supports Intel® Atom™ E3815 or E3827 processors, which offer significant improvements in computing performance as well as graphics and media capabilities with integrated Intel® Gen 7 Graphics. This enables VTC 1010 to address different computing needs while providing stereoscopic 3D and Full HD video playback capabilities to enhance the in-vehicle infotainment experience. Furthermore, the system-on-chip (SoC) architecture of the processors allows VTC 1010 to achieve a fanless design with wide operating temperature of -30 to 70 degrees Celsius and a compact form factor for use in harsh vehicle environments.
To adapt to the harsh power supply conditions within vehicles, VTC 1010 features built-in power ignition on/off delay control and low voltage detection. In addition, to withstand the rigors of shock and vibration in transportation and provide reliable operation, VTC 1010 is compliant to MIL-STD-810G and e13 certification.
To ensure scalability, VTC 1010 offers dual SIM sockets to allow seamless switching between different carrier networks to minimize roaming cost. It also features four mini-PCIe slots that can be configured with dual WWAN modules to double the bandwidth of the cellular connection, while still allowing expansion for WLAN and PAN connections. Equipped with a CAN bus 2.0B interface with optional OBDII function, as well as WWAN wake-up support, VTC 1010 can provide remote monitoring of vehicle diagnostics and can be powered on by SMS or dial up for maintenance during off-hours.
Designed to streamline fleet management operations, the VTC 1010 features built-in GPS module with optional dead-reckoning support to allow fleet operators to track vehicles in tunnels or areas where satellite signals are blocked. It also supports two-way voice communication and event button function to provide emergency voice communications and alerts for drivers, enabling control centers to respond instantly to urgent situations and take appropriate actions.
