Onboard Data Centre – making the connected vehicle a reality

To deliver the services that passengers expect, now and into the future, vehicles are being equipped with more and more systems to gather and analyse data, then to turn that data into useful services for passengers and operators.

This session will explore the challenges hosting and managing all of the software services required to achieve this vision and present Nomad Digital’s Onboard Data Centre solution set.

The Nomad Onboard Data Centre has longevity and is both upgradeable and expandable, reducing the proliferation of hardware requirements. It allows train operators to evolve their passenger experience and offer a tailored service, in turn, providing a fully connected vehicle and journey.

With technology constantly evolving, Nomad’s Onboard Data Centre gives the freedom and flexibility to integrate selected train systems, making it maintainable and future-proofed. It can support both Nomad and third-party applications, providing one commonplace with open Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs) for secure data sharing between applications.

This is cloud computing at the edge, bringing computer data storage and processing on-board where it is needed. Nomad’s virtualised on-board connectivity computing platform helps train builders create trains for the future.

More information on the Onboard Data Centre can be found on Nomad’s stand, P69 in hall 11.
