Applied Acoustics Easytrak Portable acoustic navigation system can undertake a wide range of tracking and positioning tasks for seabed mapping, towfish tracking and controlling robotic vehicles. It is also used to locate subsea divers, so is critical to the safety of personnel. To deal with difficult operating environment, a robust single board computer is required.
Applied Acoustics is a leading manufacturer of undersea positioning, tracking and sub-bottom profiling equipment. These systems are used in a wide variety of subsea commercial, military and environmental projects.
The Eurotech VIPER is an ultra low power fanless single board computer. The board runs on Windows CE software and communicates with the DSP to interpret target positioning and displays results on the 640 x 480 resolution LCD TFT Display.

Mature (technology has been on the market for > 5 years)
System Flexibility - Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.
Real-time Tracking - The location of individuals and assets can be identified in near real-time.
Data Accuracy - for greater positioning accuracy. Greater positioning accuracy is enabled through the ports on the Easytrak console which allows it to interface with gyros and vertical reference units (VRUs)
The system has a wide operating temperature, from -20 degree Celsius to 70 degree Celsius.
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
