The project aims at developing a configurable embedded platform for broadband wireless communications in transportation systems. In particular the project aims at providing:
  • broadband network interconnection within trains (on-board vehicular wireless LAN) to transmit information and audio/video content between coaches;
  • broadband interconnection of the on-board vehicular wireless LAN with the terrestrial network to allow information delivery and access to the public Internet;
  • interconnection between railway stations for video surveillance and remote monitoring of systems.
To demonstrate the results of the project we will develop a prototype of the embedded platform and a streaming application for the delivery of multimedia contents over the on-board vehicular wireless LAN.
