Distec Announces New Partnership With Axiomtek to Bring Smart Transportation Solutions to the UK Market
September 2023: Specialist technology solutions provider Distec has partnered with Taiwanese industrial computer manufacturer Axiomtek to bring its extensive range of smart transportation solutions to the UK.
Distec has over 30 years of experience supplying specialist technology solutions to the manufacturing, digital signage, healthcare, and retail sectors. This latest partnership sees them enter a new industry, offering smart transportation solutions for the first time.
There is a growing trend for using new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) to make public transportation networks safer and more efficient. AI is used across rail and bus routes to analyse everything from predictive maintenance and passenger behaviour to traffic monitoring and public safety. This widespread adoption means the value of the global smart transportation market is estimated to grow from $94.5 billion in 2020 to $156.5 billion by 2025.
Andrew Byrne, Sales and Operations Manager at Distec, said: “Transportation and technology are becoming increasingly entwined. Governments and local authorities are developing and implementing innovative solutions to create intelligent transport networks that form the backbone of smart cities. Our partnership with Axiomtek enables us to offer customers the latest solutions that can help reshape public transport in the UK.”
Based in Taiwan, Axiomtek’s certified transportation computing solutions are suitable for projects carried out by mass transit authorities, system integrators, bus and rail manufacturers and transportation infrastructure builders. Axiomtek’s full range of transportation solutions including embedded systems, transportation panel PCs, IoT systems and transportation monitors will be offered by Distec for applications such as onboard passenger information terminals, mobile communication and driver-machine interfaces.
Axiomtek’s solutions carry EN 50155 and E-Mark certification. This is a railway compliance standard that means equipment can withstand vibration, shock and bump without deterioration or malfunction under its lifecycle. E-Mark is a European conformity mark that proves a vehicle or vehicle component complies with regulations, laws and directives in the European Union.
Wen Wang, Sales Director at Axiomtek UK, said: “Incorporating digital systems into public transport is an integral part of today’s interconnected world. We are excited to be expanding our international reach through this partnership with Distec. By combining their knowledge and with Axiomtek’s smart transportation technology, we can bring our solutions to the forefront of the Transportation market in the UK and grow our brand in the region and beyond.”
