Millions of people around the world depend on municipal transportation systems to go about their daily lives. But as concerns mount over high levels of pollution in urban areas and transportation budgets are stretched thin, cities need cost-efficient solutions aimed at improving the effectiveness of their existing infrastructure and assets.
One municipality wanted to reduce pollution and save money on fuel costs by analyzing data collected from its fleet of city buses in real time. The city enlisted the help of a Lantronix partner specializing in IoT transportation networking solutions to devise a reliable way to establish Wi-Fi connectivity between their bus drivers and technicians. By opening this line of communication, bus drivers and technicians would have the power to easily monitor the Engine Control Unit (ECU) and reconfigure critical engine parameters such as fuel mixture and ignition time in response to changes in the environment.
Could Lantronix provide a networking solution that would enable the transmission of driving information and allow remote adjustments of engine parameters in real time?
The OEM connected the Lantronix xPico Wi-Fi embedded device server to the vehicle’s Controller Area Network (CAN) bus to establish real-time data communication between the vehicle and the technician. Featuring Lantronix simultaneous soft access point (Soft AP) and client mode, the xPico Wi-Fi device server now allows technicians remote access to the ECU and any system it controls. Drivers and technicians can use information gathered during routes to easily reconfigure ECU parameters and increase fuel efficiency.
Reduce your development costs, shorten your time to market, and leverage mobile solutions with the xPico Wi-Fi, one of the world’s smallest and most flexible embedded Wi-Fi IoT modules. The xPico Wi-Fi provides low power, simultaneous Soft AP and client mode, full IP and WLAN stacks, and includes an industry best 5-year warranty.
