The robust new AAEON tablet features an LCD bonded with a scratch-resistant projected capacitive multi-touch screen. It has an operating temperature range of -20°C to 50°C, is IP65 compliant, can withstand drops from a height of 122cm, and meets MIL-STD-810G standards, so strong resistance to vibrations is guaranteed.

The device is powered by an Intel Pentium/Celeron processor and supports both Windows 10 IoT and Android 8.1 operating systems. It has onboard 4GB DDR3L memory and 64GB eMMC storage, and an additional 512GB of mSATA storage can be added via an internal Mini Card slot.

The tablet features a 2MP front camera and 8MP rear camera with flash. It has 2D barcode, smart card, and NFC readers, and it can be customized to include a magnetic stripe reader. Multiple USB3.0 and USB2.0 ports along with micro HDMI, COM and LAN ports enable greater functionality and connections to peripherals devices.

The RTC-1010 comes with inbuilt WiFi and Bluetooth, and a 4G LTE module can be added via a second Mini Card slot. The system’s wireless capabilities also include GPS, Beidou, or alternative navigation solutions.

To maximize ease of use, the tablet is fitted with a hot-swappable battery, and AAEON has also developed a series of accessories including hand and shoulder straps, a docking station, and a charging dock.

Speaking about the new device, AAEON Rugged Mobile Division product manager Peter Yang said: “The RTC-1010’s rugged specifications, flexibility, and usability will make it an indispensable tool for the military, tough factory automation applications, and people who spend their working days out in the field.”

Trialed and trusted

Leaning on our extensive experience making 10” rugged tablets, the RTC-1010 will prove itself through all kinds of circumstances, defying heavy rain, dust, sand, snow and mud during your intensive day at the job. Dropping it will not give you the terror shock-and-awe you normally have dropping your consumer-grade tablet.
It is your ideal (maintenance/service) tool in any factory -and logistics environment making use of the various I/O’s, optional 1D/2D Barcode Scanner and NFC/RFID Reader.

Getting you through the day

Working long days? No problem for the RTC-1010. The internal and hot-swappable battery will make sure you get your work done.
The connectivity features on the RTC-1010 are WiFi, BlueTooth, GPS, 4G, 4 USB ports, an Ethernet port and COM port to ensure accurate positioning, fast data response and full connectivity whether in a car, bus, truck or even harvester. The vehicle docking station will even provide extra (back-up) connectivity through even more physical USB, Ethernet and COM-ports.
Furthermore, the 8MP auto-focus camera with flash will create the right picture for you in any environment, whether you are documenting damage to goods upon delivery or making scenery pictures for your factory machine maintenance reports.

Expandability

The RTC-1010 is a very versatile unit offering the flexibility to scale your needs with different accessories.
The RTC-1010 comes optionally with several ergonomic accessories such as a shoulder strap and comfortable hand strap to allow to take some weight of you and allow you to keep working.
Furthermore, the vehicle docking station will give you the capability to charge the RTC-1010 and, through the 2 extra USB ports and COM port you can add extra peripherals to it, such as a keyboard/pad, mouse, Barcode reader, UHF RFID reader, forklift sensor, etc. The docking station also provides for physical Ethernet port for legacy devices for connectivity to a Vehicle PC server or IP camera.

Real-time PPE Monitoring on the Edge saves cost and protect lives

The world’s first edge compute solution for Personal Protective Equipment ingress and real-time PPW monitoring

 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the equipment that protects the user against health or safety risks. Not wearing PPE dramatically increases the chances of injuries and in many situations also of financial losses due to fines for injuries and death of workers as well as contamination caused by not wearing gloves, hairnets, shoe covers, etc. This post describes the world’s first edge compute solution for PPE ingress and real-time PPE compliance monitoring.

Cortexica

AAEON partnering with Cortexica allows us to identify numerous real-world problems that can be addressed by applying machine vision methods. has been at the forefront of the machine vision revolution. We have reverse-engineered parts of the human visual cortex, which allowed us to develop a powerful image search engine nowadays widely used to solve many real-world problems. Some of the solutions to these problems are often very specific while others are widely applicable and have the potential to save lives. Probably the best example of this is our family of solutions designed for PPE ingress and real-time PPE compliance monitoring.

PPE is designed to protect users from serious injuries or illnesses resulting from physical, mechanical, electrical, chemical or radiological contact. The importance of PPE is paramount because it serves as the last line of defense against an injury or death. Unfortunately, studies have demonstrated that 98% of workers said they have seen others not wearing PPE when they should have been and 30% of those said this happens regularly. Head injuries, constituting 9% of all injuries, can be fatal and yet 84% of these were caused by not wearing a helmet [1]. Most of these injuries could have been prevented had there been a system in place that would continuously monitor for PPE compliance.

Recent advancements in edge computing gave rise to novel applications designed to process data right at its source effectively minimizing latency and allowing real-time processing. UP ! Bridge, the gap with CORTEXICA, presents a solution for PPE ingress and compliance monitoring that runs in real-time and entirely on the edge.

Check out a Martin Peniak interview at AAEON stand at IoT World Congress in Barcelona about our latest product developed in partnership with UP ! Bridge the gap and Cortexica Vision Systems designed to prevent injuries and save lives by automatically detecting when someone is missing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Development Kit Overview

It takes more than algorithms to deliver an AI-driven product that solves a real-life problem. Working in partnership UP with Cortexica, we have developed UP Squared AI Edge-PPE monitoring, a development kit for health and safety professionals to create proof of concepts (POC) to full-blown AI applications ready for live deployment. The development kit offers the following:

•Real-time video analysis with advanced algorithms and machine learning to ensure employees are wearing the correct PPE for their working environment

•Parallel detection of PPE, Face, Person, and Body parts leveraging CPU, GPU, and VPU processors

•Powered by the latest ultra-low-power high-performance Intel Myriad X VPU

•Single image mode

•Real-time mode

•Made for POCs
