3 key railway standards with which every on-board embedded and IoT system should comply

Railway companies looking for new on-board electronic equipment or intelligent transportation systems should consider products that follow specific requirements in terms of operating temperature, shock and vibration resistance, EMC, and so on, in order to guarantee consistent and reliable performance in harsh and contaminated environments such as trains.

That is why on-board electronic devices like IoT gateways, edge computers and intelligent transportation systems should comply with the parameters defined by specific railway certifications. We will discuss three key standard requirements to meet the needs of today’s on-board railway and rolling stock applications..

First “Little” Data, then Big Data

The quantity of digital data has exploded to roughly 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being created every day from a seemingly unlimited number of embedded devices and sensors in the world.  An increasing number of enterprise companies need to capture and analyze large data sets from the field – and need Internet of Things solutions to make it happen.

IoT scenario: data come from sensors in the field, M2M IoT Gateways, Integration Platform and Business Apps

If your company fits into this category, you are likely putting a strategy in place to bolster your IT infrastructure to capture and analyze these large data sets in 2015.
