Keeping up with the times: next generations of COPILOTpc and EVENDpc

Easy migration of INIT on-board computers & ticket printers

Modern telematics and ticketing applications put high demands on the performance of on-board computers and ticket printers. This year, INIT launches two next generation devices to make sure that public transport companies can successfully meet upcoming challenges. The on-board computer, COPILOTpc3, is used as an IT- and communications platform in the vehicle, as well as the PC-based ticket printer, EVENDpc3. The latter serves as an integrated on-board computer and ticket printer in one.

Both devices contain a powerful processor and significantly enhanced memory capacities. Because of their high-performance operational system, Microsoft Windows 10 IoT, they enable the use of cost-effective standard software and facilitate the implementation of future add-ons. Both devices have already been adapted for the use of the new 5G mobile radio standard.

EVENDpc3 not only contains a newly-designed and ergonomically optimised user interface but with its hybrid card reader also supports EMV credit card and bank card payments, as well as all types of e-ticketing. These include both Open Payment applications according to the EMV Transit Model and account-based systems.

INIT ensures subsequent deliveries of devices and replacement parts as long as possible. Furthermore, successor-models are always developed compatibly to the predecessors in order to guarantee system availability – even beyond subsequent delivery possibilities. This also applies to COPILOTpc3 and EVENDpc3, and it allows for a remarkably simple migration. The devices can be exchanged within just a few minutes and run together in one and the same fleet with previous-generation devices. Therefore, newly bought vehicles, too, can be integrated into existing systems without additional effort.

Driven by the need for innovation

INIT has already been developing the next generation of both devices due to numerous reasons connected to external conditions and new market demands. Among these are the continuously growing requirements regarding IT-safety, new mobile radio standards and the need for larger memory capacities – not only for operational systems, but also for data and applications. New memory technologies make it possible to save these large quantities of data. COPILOTpc3 and EVENDpc3 already follow the most recent trend by using SSD (Solid State Drives). Another reason for the development of a successor model is the fact that life cycles of installed electronic parts become shorter and shorter.

The migration to COPILOTpc3 and EVENDpc3 enables public transport companies to benefit from up-to-date technology and allows them to integrate new functions, e. g. the communication via mobile radio, VoIP, text-to-speech, speech recognition, EMV.
