The dissemination of Internet around the world changed the way people communicate, the evolution of the information and communication technology allowed the creation of new types of services involving electronic devices with huge potential. Internet of Things (IoT) offers new possibilities and new services to end users, since they could learn more about other entities present in the surrounding environment. Therefore, the biggest challenges for the IoT application developer is to bring all these heterogeneous systems to an intelligent network, transform the data into a unified format for IoT communication and management. Artila, focus on mobile computing field, provides Matrix-713 as gateway system, which is a fanless Linux-ready Cortex-A5 Industrial Box Computer suitable for the mobile computing, integration and control needs such as Vehicle and smart factories. Matrix-713 provide a series of optional I/O interfaces including isolated RS-485 Serial ports, CAN and digital I/O, Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be used to flexibly connect with various equipment and systems already existing on the field.
Different from Matrix-710 is suitable for more simplified data transmission, Matrix-713 supports GPS/ GLONASS and 9 axis MEMS microsensor for location information transition more accurate. For software, Matrix-713 equips Node-Red, the browser-based flow editor provides a dashboard builder and a rich RESTful APIs, which system integrators can use to design and generate user interfaces and create various web-services and mobile applications.
Artila’s Matrix-713 is designed for harsh environment—a wide operating temperature range from -20 to 80°C, provide rock-solid, industrial-grade performance. Also, it offers a miniPCIe slot that can be easily deploy RF modules to achieve wireless network communication and position. Such as LTE/4G, 3G, Wifi, BLE, Lora…etc. For its’ mobile ability, it equips dual power source which can support battery backup.
