Smart parking uses automated license plate recognition (ANPR) to monitor and manage parking lots, which has a direct impact on reducing urban traffic congestion, improving the parking experience and better parking management. Automated license plate recognition works through the use of infrared cameras that are specially designed to detect the license plates of vehicles entering and exiting the parking lot; in addition, it uses infrared sensors to detect changing light levels – enabling a picture to be taken at any time of the day or night. License plate recognition– an image processing technology is used to identify vehicles by their license plates. The computer systems used for automated license plate recognition parking deployment must support multiple camera inputs, high-speed Ethernet transmission, separate displays and provide support for multiple sensors. At the same time, they must be sufficiently compact and low-power devices to fit in very narrow spaces. Axiomtek’s IIoT gateways and ultra-small box PC satisfy customer's demands in compact-size, fanless operation, low power consumption and versatile I/O.
Axiomtek's eBOX560-52R-FL and ICO320-83C are the ideal choices for customers who desire computing power, data transition speed, and rugged and ultra-compact construction on one product. The eBOX560-52R-FL is powered by the Intel® Whisky Lake ULT processor and delivers high performance even when processing multiple data inputs and outputs. The system supports dual GbE LAN ports and 4 USB ports to connect to various cameras, sensors and devices, along with one 2.5” hard drive bay that allows the system to store massive data to be transmitted to a control room or other edge computers via WiFi. Its flexible mounting options include wall mount, VESA mount and DIN-rail mount. The ICO320-83C is a fanless DIN-rail gateway with four RJ-45 PoE ports. It has an IP30-rated heavy-duty aluminum extrusion and steel enclosure for use in harsh environments. The ICO320-83C can operate under wide temperatures ranging from -40°C to 70°C and withstand vibration up to 2G. It is powered by the high-performance Intel® Celeron® processor N3350 or Pentium® processor N4200. It comes with rich I/O connectivity while measuring only 77 x 110 x 155 mm. The wide range 12V-24V DC terminal block power input with overvoltage and reverse protection can lower the risk of data loss. Furthermore, these box PCs support Axiomtek’s exclusive AXView software to help users remotely monitor and manage connected devices. For operating systems, they support Windows® 10 IoT and Linux.
Axiomtek’s embedded computers and IIoT gateway devices are designed specifically for harsh space-constrained IIoT applications. These rugged embedded box PCs are comprehensive, versatile, robust, and highly reliable. We also have experienced design engineering and value-added service teams that have been recognized by our customers as some of the most helpful and valuable resources for their seamless and quick deployments.
