Sunit Scania Interactor 600 (http://rbi.ims.ca/4922-552). In Europe, drivers of Scania trucks obtain information about the functions and condition of the vehicle, receive directions to the destination via satellite navigation, communicate with clients and central dispatching, and even have help with administrative tasks. A 10.4 inch touch panel on the dashboard operates a high-performance vehicle PC that is integrated into the standard radio slot. Sunit engineers chose Kontron's CP306 CompactPCI assembly to meet the embedded computing requirements for the in-vehicle applications. The unit has a Pentium M operating from 1.1 to 2 GHz, an integrated graphics controller, Gigabit Ethernet and Fast Ethernet interfaces, four USB interfaces, and four RS232 interfaces.
