NEXCOM fanless computer NISE 2100A is the engine for a range of electric car rental kiosks which are located roadside throughout Paris and its suburbs. Designed to provide a fast and convenient way for drivers to access information, these Kiosks, with integrated NISE2100A, are able to operate reliably in summer, winter, rain or shine.
Two different kiosk types utilise the myriad of I/O interfaces which are present on the NISE 2100A. In the subscription service station, the kiosk, guides drivers through the registration process by allowing advisors from the call centre to video chat with drivers, scan identity documents, offer package plans on touch screen, accept bank card payments, and issue membership cards equipped with RFID tags. The second type of kiosk is usually located outdoors and helps drivers rent electric cars. It can read RFID tags, ask for password validation on touch screen, indicate the location assigned electric cars, and offer prompt assistance via a call centre. By utilising the NEXCOM fanless computer, the service provider has successfully built up two types of multi-functional advanced kiosk that can help drivers get quickly get on the road.
By installing these advanced kiosks, the service provider has been able to curtail operating expenses in terms of utilities, office expenses, leasing commissions etc. Thanks to the fanless computer, these kiosks could work around the clock without maintenance even in dusty outdoor environments. More importantly, NISE 2100A designed to operate over a wide temperature range from -20 to 70°C was able to function properly in any weather condition. In addition, NEXCOM helped with verification of peripheral devices, ensuring these kiosks were properly configured to carry out all intended functions. Combing NEXCOM fanless computer NISE 2100A and NEXCOM technology supports, the service provider swiftly set up a service network comprised of hundreds of kiosks in Paris and 45 adjoining towns.
In next few months, more NISE 2100A-embedded kiosks will be installed in more than a thousand service stations with the aim to provide an alternative to public transportation for millions of residents and tourists in need to commute between the Paris and the suburbs.
