Case Study: Specialist Vehicle Solutions

The i3 Intelligent Controller is already being used in a wide range of specialist vehicles including, Custodial, Fire, and Cash-In-Transit. Another example of how the i3 can be used, is in state of the art Police Vehicles that contain a range of high tech equipment and software systems. These systems are often produced by several suppliers, therefore having several different user interfaces which the vehicles crew need to operate.

A single user interface running on a touch screen PC would bring all of these systems together in one place. IMO has identified this requirement and produced just that! Operating a number of electrical components installed on the vehicle, including the light bar, the siren and the matrix sign at the rear of the vehicle. It also provides a graphical front end for the stolen vehicle ‘Tracker’ system. The software will also interface with a third party in-car ANPR system (automatic number plate recognition) and the CCTV camera system for the vehicle-mounted cameras. Physical control is provided via IMO’s powerful i3 controller.

The user interface uses IMO’s Panel-Point SCADAlite software platform.
