In-Vehicle Computers Run Linux on Apollo Lake


Lanner’s Linux-friendly V3 Series of Apollo Lake based in-vehicle computers includes V3G and V3S models with -40 to 70°C and MIL-STD-810G ruggedization. The V3S adds a third mini-PCIe slot and 4x PoE-ready GbE ports for IP cameras.

Lanner has launched the first two models in a rugged new V3 Series of “vehicle gateway controllers.” The V3G is designed for smart bus implementation, including fleet management and passenger information display, while the similar, but more feature rich V3S is intended for video surveillance, recording, and analytics.

Both the V3G and V3S are equipped with quad-core, 1.6GHz Atom x7-E3950 SoC from Intel’s Apollo Lake generation. They run Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 and Fedora 14, with Linux Kernel 2.6.18 or later, as well as Windows 10.
