Automotive

Transforming the way the automotive industry works

Whether in research and development for engines or vehicles, for computer simulations and optimization, for measuring, recording and evaluating telematic data during test drives - Toughbooks, equipped with Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor, are the ideal tool for all areas in the automotive industry.

With their rugged, fanless design and seals for the external ports, the units of our fully ruggedized series are resistant against dust and water, as well as vibrations and shocks (MIL-STD 810G and IP65)¹,². They are also weatherproof for outdoor vehicle diagnosis at site, and withstand drops and shocks on bumpy test tracks as well as dirty conditions in workshops.

Ideal for the rental industry

At all stages of the vehicle rental process – before during and after – Toughbooks are perfectly suited to deliver previously unachievable levels of performance, at the point of service. Thanks to world-leading wireless connectivity, integrated data collection features and their ability to perform outdoors, the use of a Toughbook means a customer can receive exceptional service, often without ever needing to venture further than the forecourt.

Reliable and durable


The rugged design with features such as flexible mounted LCDs, strong hinges and shock-protected HDDs makes Toughbooks extraordinarily long-lasting and impassible against failures, breakdowns and expensive repairs. Therefore, their accumulated cost over the entire life-cycle is on a considerably lower level than conventional mobile devices (Total Cost of Ownership).

But those are the technical facts. What we’d like to show you now is how Toughbooks can work with you.

How they’re already helping other organizations similar to yours. And how they can help you overcome the main challenges you face.

Forklift

Dedicated computing for your forklift fleet

Forklift trucks are a vital part of warehousing. No matter what the size of your fleet, the computers you choose to mount on your forklifts are a crucial investment in the smooth and efficient running of your operation.

The benefits of ICT-enabled forklifts are numerous and well known. Tasks can be carried out with greater efficiency because operators have continued access to accurate, real-time information from your central management system while they’re picking and putting away, managing inventory or tracking and recording assets.

But what should you consider when choosing computers for your fleet, and how can you make the best decision for your organisation now and for the future?

Here are some of the most critical questions you’ll need to ask yourself:

Are you looking for a fixed computer or a flexible mobile device that can move between vehicles?

Reliability/DurabilityEWven our smallest machines meet the challenges of field working in the transport sector. Take the Toughbook ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) CF-U1. At 1060 grams, the unit can withstand falls from 120 cm. What’s more, some of our models are up to IP65 compliant for dust and moisture resistance¹.

Portability/Mobility

Transport encompasses many environments - which means mobility is crucial. Small, mountable form factors and unique design features such as an integrated handle mean Toughbooks go wherever you need them to.

No Power Access

Toughbooks have a newly designed battery and specially adapted power management system. This allows up to 8 hours of running time from a single battery charge.

Connectivity
The integrated WLAN module and optional HSPA make it possible to do tasks like capturing and sending digital images – even when working in challenging outdoor conditions. This means you reduce delays to the transport network and cut any penalties you might face.

Utilities

Transforming the way utilities work

Mobile working in the utilities sector presents its own unique challenges

There’s the need to give your field staff access to digital information, whilst carrying out inspection and maintenance in remote or difficult locations. The requirement to ensure safe working conditions maybe? And the demand for efficient asset management or the need to work where power sources are unavailable and the elements are a constant enemy.

That’s where Toughbook, equipped with Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor, comes into its own.

Thanks to world-class connectivity, performance, portability and unrivalled durability, they are enabling professionals in the utilities sector to achieve far more in the field than ever before.
