Russian Railway Control System uses Dual SBCs for Redundancy

For the Russian railway, a Russian system integrator developed and implemented a specialized redundant SBC gateway system designed to work in the railway’s Automatic Train Control systems. This gateway fail-safe computer provides the intelligent interface between each station’s Automatic Interlocking Systems CAN network and the RF modems for communication with every train. In addition, the RF transmission of signaling information adds redundancy and functionality the normal terrestrial ATC systems.

Diamond Embedded Products Power an Avionics Information System

An avionics information system uses a customized Hercules CPU and PC/104 power supply from Diamond to run several cockpit applications in a challenging environment. The unit provides a single source for all the supplementary and situation information that a crew needs for safe and efficient flight, such as checklists and manuals, maps and charts, take-off and landing speeds calculations, and much more. The system makes use of an air-ground link which enables it to efficiently transfer digital information between the aircraft and the ground.

Austrian Railway System Uses Diamond's Data Acquisition System

The Austrian Railway Authority (ARA) recently built a new high-speed rail system in Pöchlarm, in southern Austria. In order to verify the system performance, some tests were conducted with the assistance of the German ICE train system. A major concern was the ability of the overhead power lines to withstand the effects of a train passing by at speeds of up to 300Km/hr (186mph), a new speed record for trains in Austria.

PC/104-equipped Electric Vehicle Sets Land Speed Record

The Buckeye Bullet is an electric vehicle student project at The Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research in Columbus, Ohio. The "Bullet" became the first electric-powered vehicle in the world to exceed 300 mph when it reached a top speed of 308.3 mph on August 16, 2004, during the 56th annual Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Subsequently, on October 14th at the end of mile 5, this was raised to 314.9 mph. The 314 mph run qualified as a new U.S. record in one direction. The vehicle later achieved speeds as high as 321.8 mph.
