While some intelligent systems applications may call for enhancing the driver’s experience or improving productivity, applications such as infrastructure monitoring and management can have more demanding and exacting requirements. The readiness and day-to-day operational efficiency and productivity for transportation companies are of paramount importance. Monitoring solutions play a significant role in keeping day-to-day operations running smoothly, efficiently and safely. Real-time display of information with the highest possible level of quality and user experience regardless of the conditions is required.
Dedicated to improving operation, control, communications, monitoring and safety, AIS Multi-Touch HMIs help transportation applications maximize the availability of assets and infrastructure for revenue generation, while assuring safety and security with less cost and impact on their customers.
Featuring the latest in Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT or PCAP) Technology, AIS HMIs deliver a superior, multi-touch experience with gesture-based capabilities such as pan, zoom and rotate which are commonly found on Smartphone devices and the popular tablets of today. The sensor in Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT or PCAP) Technology provides tracking of two simultaneous touches across the screen quickly and accurately, which allows AIS Multi-Touch panel PCs and HMIs to be fast, responsive and easy-to-use.
The multi-touch panel PCs and HMIs from AIS are rugged, multi-function fully integrated workstations. Incorporating a high-performance Intel Atom Dual Core Processor D2550 1.86 GHz and PCT or PCAP technology, the AIS multi-touch panel PC features a sleek and attractive cosmetic design combined with industrial-grade IP65/NEMA 4/4X Ingress rating TFT-LCD flat panel.
Nelson Tsay, President of AIS, adds “As transportation systems and infrastructure companies demand more intelligence from control equipment and need to maximize operational efficiency and revenue generation, they can turn to AIS Multi-Touch Panel PCs to dramatically improve control, monitoring, communications and operator safety and achieve their goals.”
Headquartered in the USA, in Irvine, California, AIS is an ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier and manufacturer of rugged computer and display, and had received completion of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registration from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). AIS is an established global manufacturer of a wide range off-the-shelf and customized industrial-grade HMI and display products in different configurations for various industrial, military, and outdoor digital signage applications.
