In-Vehicle Connectivity: Smart Bus

MX-1000 provides an always-on connection for real-time video surveillance, reporting, and positioning, cities can strengthen the safety of public transportation to further improve the quality of life for citizens.

Executive Summary

Philippines, world’s top 10 fast-growing economies, has attracted massive investment from the world, aiming to build the first smart city in the Southeast Asia in the coming years. Smart bus acts as the foundation for any municipality’s smart city blueprint, which is to improve the passengers riding experience, reduce traffic congestion, and city safety. BEC provides MX-1000, the industrial router designed for In-vehicle applications which supports 4G LTE broadband connectivity enabling real-time onboard monitoring, location tracking, and emergency detection, delivering unsurpassed smart bus experience in the Philippines.

Challenges

A leading GPS system company in the Philippines required a 4G LTE communication device to be integrated into its GPS system to track the status of 180 smart buses in the city. The device also needs to support other value-added applications including Wi-Fi Hotspot, IP Cam video streaming, and alarm system to ensure passengers’ safety and comfort.

Solutions

BEC Technologies provided MX-1000 to be installed in the smart buses. Featuring the latest dual 4G LTE technology, dual-SIM, auto-failover, multiple WAN ports, it provides reliable and seamless internet connectivity in the moving vehicle; live video streaming and onboard surveillance to track the real-time vehicle status. A Wi-Fi Hotspot captive portal allows passengers to enjoy cellular services along with advertisement push options. BEC MX-1000 also serves as the communication device between drivers and dispatchers by tracking real-time information, such as location identification with embedded GPS or GLONASS receiver, and the vehicle operation information, including engine speed, time, driving route, oil consumption data, etc., through the On-Board-Diagnosis (OBD II) interface to further ensure comfort and safety for bus passengers. An alarm notification will be sent to dispatch center when the system detects abnormal events.

Moreover, MX-1000 has earned US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Compliant and E-Mark (E1) certifications which can endure wide temperature range, humidity, high-level shock and vibration with compact enclosure and industrial-grade components. With flexible input range from DC 10V~56V and ignition sensing control, MX-1000 is suitable for any type of the vehicles that can be automatically turned on/off under the condition of vehicle’s engine to avoid draining vehicle’s battery.

Results

By implementing MX-1000, which provides an always-on connection for real-time video surveillance, reporting, and positioning, cities can strengthen the safety of public transportation to further improve the quality of life for citizens.
