Optra Edge by Lexmark offers significant advantages to the transportation industry, revolutionizing the way transportation systems operate and improving efficiency, safety, and customer experiences. By bringing computational power and data processing capabilities closer to the source of data generation, edge computing enables real-time analysis and decision-making at the edge of the transportation network. This allows for immediate processing and response to critical data, such as traffic conditions, vehicle performance, and passenger preferences.
With edge computing, transportation systems can optimize traffic management by analyzing real-time data from cameras and sensors at the edge, enabling dynamic routing, congestion management, and efficient resource allocation. Additionally, Optra facilitates predictive maintenance by monitoring and analyzing data from vehicles and infrastructure in real-time, allowing for proactive maintenance and minimizing downtime.
Moreover, Optra can enhance passenger experiences by providing personalized and context-aware services, such as real-time travel updates, interactive maps, and tailored recommendations. Overall, Optra Edge empowers the transportation industry with real-time insights, improved operational efficiency, enhanced safety measures, and enhanced passenger satisfaction.
Optra Edge Benefits for Transportation
Fleet/Site management and turn-time estimation
Optra Edge enables visibility into transportation tracking and vehicle fleet management. Count and track the number of vehicles arriving and departing, assess parking availability, as well as tracking the amount of time a vehicle has been on-site or in process. Streamline vehicle processing and efficiency, as well as optimizing logistics at distribution, fueling, and site operations.
Real-time traffic management
Optra enables real-time analysis of data from cameras and sensors, allowing transportation systems to optimize traffic management. By analyzing flow rates, traffic anomalies, and traffic patterns at the edge, transportation officials can improve traffic flow, reduce delays, and enhance overall efficiency.
Optra Edge facilitates predictive maintenance by continuously monitoring and analyzing data from vehicles and infrastructure in real-time. This allows transportation companies to detect anomalies, predict equipment failures, and schedule maintenance proactively. By minimizing unplanned downtime, transportation systems can improve reliability, reduce costs, and optimize fleet utilization.
Real-time fleet management
Our edge computing platform empowers transportation companies to monitor and manage their fleets in real-time. By analyzing data on vehicle locations, fuel consumption, and driver behavior at the edge, companies can optimize routing, manage fuel efficiency, and ensure compliance with regulations. This leads to cost savings, increased operational efficiency, and improved service quality.
Intelligent transportation systems
Optra supports the deployment of intelligent transportation systems (ITS). By processing data at the edge, ITS applications can provide real-time information to drivers and passengers, such as traffic updates, parking availability, and public transit schedules. This improves travel planning, reduces congestion, and enhances the overall transportation experience.
Transportation Workplace Safety
Optra Edge facilitates the monitoring and tracking of man and machine interactions as well as the validation of employee protective gear and safety processes. Vision-based collection of accident near-misses and frequency can be used to both indentify process / facility issues as well as validate existing safety protocols. Ultimately this leads to reduced safety incidents and lower insurance rates.
