The Eurotech embedded AVL-Light is a low-power standard system platform specifically designed for demanding cost-sensitive real-time vehicle tracking applications. It combines a powerful low-power embedded CPU with advanced in-vehicle peripheral and wireless connectivity. Several standard system configurations are available with different wireless/interface options.
The AVL-Light includes GPS satellite positioning with wireless communications over GSM/GPRS as well as Wi-Fi and data transfer using a fast Ethernet connection.
Local I/O expansion or connection to the vehicle bus is possible using the integrated CAN-bus interface. Interfaces are tailored to meet the most common requirements encountered in AVL and fleet management systems.
The AVL-Light also features a unique identifier line that can be used as user or vehicle identification.
The AVL-Light is E-certificated and meets the requirements of EN50155; an extended operating temperature range as well as being resistant to humidity, shocks and vibrations commonly encountered in vehicle installations.
Applications can run on embedded WINCE or Linux operating systems. Board Support Packages (BSP) are available to speed up application development. Mass storage is available inside the AVL-Light for the OS, application programs as well as data storage. Thanks to the unique design of the enclosure, maintenance can be performed without removing the system from its installed location.
