A cargo occupancy sensor fusion platform - Xirgo Vision
XirgoVision: Industrial IoT Gateway with Integrated Cargo Sensing
XirgoVision is a full-featured industrial IoT solution with multi-carrier LTE cellular connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Dual CAN bus and One-Wire bus are included so the solution will integrate with other sensors and systems on trailers or containers. An integrated, rechargeable 10 Ah battery (expandable up to 15 Ah) can be charged using 12 VDC vehicle power or by connecting it to Xirgo’s 14-watt solar panel. An optional Bluetooth door sensor may be paired with the system to trigger data capture when a door open/close event occurs.
XirgoVision’s cargo occupancy system is a sensor fusion platform using two cameras and a time-of-flight ultrasonic sensor providing enhanced cargo sensing capabilities under any lighting condition. This is a key differentiator to traditional ultrasonic-based cargo sensors that fail to provide accurate capacity and utilization information. XirgoVision can capture cargo status with the door open or closed and works with any roll-up or swing style door. For qualitative review, the solution also provides a “thumbnail” style, low data cost, trailer images.
XirgoVision provides the real-time, event-driven, and historical status of trailers or containers providing customers with an enhanced decision-making tool.
