Application Story

Taxicab Mounted Mobile Video Graphics Display

You can’t go to a large city, such as New York or Las Vegas, without seeing hundreds of thousands of advertisements. They’re everywhere – on billboards, on the sidewalk, on taxis and even on your phone as you travel. Modern advertising has brought us into the digital world – demanding 24-hour use, GPS capabilities and the ability to withstand a New York winter or the scalding heat of Las Vegas. VersaLogic’s single board computers solve these problems with rugged, shock and vibe-resistant, industrial temperature systems.


Case Study: Mobile Digital Media Application

A VersaLogic single board computer (SBC) has been designed into an innovative advertising media that integrates video, internet, and GPS technology. The system is a mobile video graphics display module that mounts to the top of taxicabs and receives advertising media through a wireless internet connection. The system uses GPS to identify its location and change advertising messages to correspond with the advertiser’s geographic selections.

The VersaLogic SBC integrated into the display, controls the ultra-bright LCD and coordinates communication with the central server and GPS system. The embedded system integrates video, audio, RAM, Ethernet, USB ports, COM ports, analog/digital I/O, and sockets for on-board media storage. VersaLogic’s rugged small form-factor SBCs are ideal for mobile applications that require outstanding reliability, extended temperature range and low power consumption.

In the transportation and mobile digital media industry, you can count on VersaLogic’s expertise to deliver reliable embedded systems. If your application needs a rugged, industrial temperature embedded computer, look no further than the company that has proven its performance for over 40 years.
