Advantech Launches TREK-60 Modular In-Vehicle AI Platform for Scalable Surveillance and Fleet Management
Taipei, Taiwan, September 2020 – Advantech, a leading mobile computing platform provider, is pleased to announce the TREK-60 modular in-vehicle AI platform, the next-generation model of its widely adopted TREK-674 in-vehicle computing box.
Aimed at fleet management and surveillance applications, TREK-60 is compliant with MIL-STD-810G and 5M3 specifications for shock/vibration resistance and supports a 7th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/Atom™ E3900 quad-core processor for flexible configuration according to specific usage requirements. To enable hybrid video surveillance, TREK-60 supports up to eight camera input channels, and the built-in RF extension module with automotive-grade FAKRA connector supports GNSS, WLAN, Bluetooth, and WWAN technology to facilitate real-time communication, vehicle tracking, and data collection. The embedded dual CAN bus supports diverse vehicle protocols, including raw CAN, J1939, and OBD-II, for vehicle monitoring and diagnostics, while the intelligent vehicle power management system supports ignition on/off/delay and wake-up event control. Compatible with 12/24 V vehicle power (ISO 7637-2) and a wide power input range (9 ~ 32 VDC), TREK-60 can withstand operation in extreme in-vehicle environments. Moreover, the modular design allows the system I/O to be extended to facilitate the integration of optional modules. Finally, with the integration of Intel’s OpenVINOTM toolkit for convenient deployment, TREK-60 provides a robust and highly customizable in-vehicle solution for public transportation, emergency services, heavy-duty vehicles and utility fleets.
Modular Design and Edge AI Offer Scalability
With support for either an Intel® Atom™ X5-E3940 quad-core processor or Intel® Core™ i7-7600U dual-core processor, TREK-60 is designed for flexible configuration and cost-effective upgrades to ensure future applicability. The inclusion of an RF extension module that supports WLAN, Bluetooth, WWAN, and GPS technology and features an automotive-grade Hirose GT series/Amphenol® RF FAKRA connector allows for reliable wireless communication and easy maintenance. Equipped with an I/O extension module, TREK-60 can be integrated with additional optional Edge AI, 5G communication, and DSRC/V2X modules that expand the system functionalities at minimal cost. For enhanced vehicle management, TREK-60 features a built-in G sensor and gyroscope for data collection and can be integrated with an optional Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X vision processing unit and OpenVINOTM toolkit to facilitate deep learning and AI processing.
Supports 8 Camera Input Channels for Advanced Video Surveillance
To support critical video surveillance applications on public transport, emergency, and utility fleets, TREK-60 is equipped with eight 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet ports for integrating IP cameras. An optional RJ-45 cable management kit can be added to ensure stable connectivity with IP cameras. Moreover, the two built-in microcontrollers feature intelligent power and Ethernet management and, with the inclusion of a SDK, support remote access for convenient control.
Rugged Design for Harsh Industrial Environments
Built to withstand operation in harsh in-vehicle environments, TREK-60 supports a wide operating temperature range and is compliant with MIL-STD-810G and EN60721-3(5M3) specifications for vibration/shock resistance. For protection from dust and water ingress, an optional IP65-rated I/O cover can be included. The system can also be equipped with an external SSD tray with key-lock protection for enhanced security. Moreover, TREK-60 can be easily paired with Advantech’s second-generation TREK-306D2, TREK-306P2, and TREK-303R2 in-vehicle smart displays for diverse visualization applications.
