Enabling Computing and Connectivity in Public Transportation

Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is a foreseeable evolution that enables two-way, real-time communications between moving vehicles, traffic infrastructure and centralized control centers. IoV is expected to not only improve security for both public and commercial transportation networks, but also enhance transportation management, which in turn optimizes energy consumption and curtails greenhouse effect.

To enable the connectivity and intelligence in inter-connected transportation systems, it is crucial to integrate edge devices, such as vehicle/railway gateways with 5G networking infrastructures to run virtualized, mission critical applications in intelligent public transit, V2X communication and new mobility services.

In-Vehicle/Railway Computing
