What are In-Vehicle Computers?

They can be used for information and entertainment systems in taxis, buses, airplanes, or trains. They are also used for surveillance for fleet management police, ambulances, UAVs.

Features of In-Vehicle Computers

In-vehicle computers are specially designed to withstand the shocks and vibrations that occur during travel and are of a compact size due to requirements of weight and size restraints of the vehicle overall. Since they are often exposed to the outdoors, in-vehicle computers can handle both extreme hot and cold conditions—from as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit up to as hot as 176 degrees Fahrenheit.Because cars and other transportation vehicles are turned on and off, in-vehicle computers have specially designed surge protection power supplies, delivering power depending on the ignition state of the vehicle. This technology is known as ignition sensing and it allows the user to turn the vehicle on and off without having to reboot or turn off the in-vehicle computer. Some in-vehicle computers feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.
