Industrial computing power keeps the traffic in check
Highways and motorways are at the heart of modern transportation systems.
Like arteries shuttling blood to every part of the body where it’s needed, so the highways
move commuters to their work, businessmen to their next important client meeting and
tourists to popular destinations. These life-giving arteries also pump essential goods and services from their sources to their destinations.
The health of the transport network determines whether everything flows as expected or gets
clogged. That health needs constant monitoring, and that monitoring needs to be powerful
enough to remedy any issues as quickly as possible.
This case study looks at the specification and installation of i ndustrial grade computers at a
traffic control center. First it looks at what was needed. Then it looks at how and why the
final solution was chosen.
