How does the system work?

Case Study: Public Transit Bus Picture5

  • Real-time data from recorder installed on each vehicle will be transmitted to the central server system via 3G/4G when the bus is running on the road. People can have access to the recorder real-time data remotely via the Intelligent Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS) platform and App.

  • The central server ( including the WiFi downloading server where the recorded files will be uploaded ) is installed at the facility where the vehicles return and park overnight. And a wireless network is set up at this place which has configured to connect to the central server and provide access points in the bus lot.

  • When a vehicle returns to the facility and is in the wireless network range, the Wi-Fi radios on each vehicle automatically connect to the access points - directly transmitting any scheduled, automatic event-based, or end-user requested video contents to the WiFi downloading server wirelessly and cost-effectively.

Computers connected to the server via Cellular/Wi-Fi and using the IVMS client software or MDVRPlayer playback software can quickly and easily search the video database on selected criteria. Besides the basic video contents, end-users can also get extensive email alerts and MDVR system reports like the mileage report, alarm reports speed report, etc., recorder health reports based on the operator’s requested.
