Although the TPM already is used in a number of non-PC applications, including digital copiers, kiosks, gaming systems and industrial systems, the Embedded Systems Work Group facilitates the continued evolution of Trusted Computing as a source for security in these markets and to help facilitate the ecosystem to support the concepts of a hardware root of trust.
The Embedded Systems Work Group actively seeks companies who require secure and trustworthy embedded systems. For more informationon how to join this effort, view the benefits of membership today.
The embedded systems market is going through a profound transformation right now. Historically, embedded systems builders assumed that their systems were ultimately built to stand alone. Typical embedded systems, such as those in today’s automobiles, might contain more than a hundred individual processors, with multiple in-vehicle networks and millions of lines of code. Even so, the vehicle is a closed system.
Today, just about every device or machine in an office, factory, distribution center or any other enterprise is a computer or contains a computer of some sort. No longer are computers limited to desktop PCs and servers and to complicate IT matters, all of these non-PC computing devices are connected in some way.
Sicore is a fully integrated (embedded)camera that automatically recognizes number plates and thus uniquely identifies each vehicle. For this purpose, Sicore captures front or rear views of the vehicle. The integrated image processing software automatically scans the stream of incoming images for any vehicle and its number plate.
