Tough applications that are always on the move

Speed. Vibrations. All-year climates. Ready no matter the weather.

Transportation comes in many different shapes and forms. Yet whether it is a high-speed train, an eighteen-wheeler, an aircraft, or even a container ship, the need for rugged high-quality hardware remains the same. Vehicles face tough environments and so must all their equipment.

Life on the road. On the sea. In the air.

The transportation sector presents unique opportunities and challenges for digital solution providers. On the one hand, the transportation sector stands to gain an incredible amount from digitization, yet on the other hand, its unique challenges make it a difficult sector to digitize.

Vehicles and their equipment are – justifiably – expected to work without a hitch any time of the year and in any weather. Moreover, equipment is expected to handle shocks and vibrations, not to mention dealing with extreme temperatures and unreliable power supply.

Fortunately, technological advances are making it possible to bring the transportation sector into the future, too.

For example, commercial surveillance solutions and fleet management systems are bringing a safer and more efficient future to vehicles used in logistics, relying on big data generated by sensors and cameras to improve safety and profitability.

Similarly, public transportation uses advanced systems that keep passengers safe and informed about their journeys at every step of their journeys. And that is not to mention all the information fed to pilots, drivers, and captains.

Data is moving to the center of the transportation sector, but tackling this explosion of data in a way that is compatible with the transportation sector’s unique demands is the real challenge.
