Transport and Rail
Computer technology is often used to make transport and rail safer and more efficient. The police and emergency services are expected to have up to date information at all times for which they make use of computers. These computers must meet specific requirements if they are to work reliably. Businesses like Google which use cars to drive around and map surroundings also make use of computer technology. And transporters of dangerous substances use increasingly advanced technology to be able to get products to their clients ever faster and more safely.
Trains are increasingly used as a viable alternative to air travel. In order to offer clients comfort and ease of travel, computer systems are used in trains offering Internet or forms of Multimedia. The computer technology used for this has to meet the extremely strict EN 50155 regulations. Arcobel has built up a great deal of expertise both on and alongside the track and we can help you either select standard products or we can assist you with extensive customized development projects.
