In-Vehicle Computing Box.
Sections include:
 Introduction
 General Specifications
 Dimensions
1.1 Introduction
The TREK-550 is a dedicated box computer for industrial vehicle fleets, transport
trucks, buses and taxis. TREK-550 combined with variety of I/O connectors can be
connected to devices like OBD-II or TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System). Dual
display/dual audio interfaces supporting different resolutions can deliver different
applications to different displays; eg: one application to a fleet driver and another to
a digital signage application.
Built-in wireless communications (WWAN, WLAN, BT) enable TREK-550 to send
important driver/vehicle/location/cargo information back to the control center.
TREK-550 can also operate in extreme environments with features like a wide
working temperature range (-30 to 70 degrees). TREK-550 also uses a special
design to handle the critical issue of in-vehicle power. Special power protection
(ISO7637-2/SAE J1455 Class A/ SAE J1113) and car power management software
(Ignition on/off, delay on/off, low battery monitor) prevent electrical noise and surges
from impacting the system, guarding against damage from transient car power.
TREK-550 also support rear view monitor through connecting video in port. With this
feature, driver can real time monitor the environment on two sides of the truck for
driving safety. TREK-550 can also support dead-reckoning feature, which means the
truck can still be traced even the driver is driving in a tunnel.

Dimensions: (W x H x D): 271 x 149 x 69.7 mm.
Weight: 2 kg.
Power supply:
– Input voltage: 6 ~ 36Vdc, support ignition cold crank
– Ignition on/off
– Low battery shut-down protection threshold (optional): When the
vehicle battery voltage level drops below 11V for more than 30 seconds,
TREK-550 will automatically shut down in order to prevent “deep discharge”
situations and TREK-550 can be re-activated only when the voltage is > 11V.
– Power on delay: Default 2 seconds. When the TREK-550 is powered on via
ignition key, the system will delay 2 seconds to power on.
– Power off delay: Default 5 seconds. When TREK-550 power is controlled by
ignition key and turns off by the key (ignition=off), the TREK-550 will start the
shut procedure after 5 seconds.
– Hard off delay: Default 30 seconds. When TREK-550 power is controlled by
ignition key and turns off by the key (ignition=off), the TREK-550 will cut off
the 5VSB power after 30 seconds. In this event when the shutdown process
is longer than 30 seconds, the power will be shut down hard, turning off the
TREK-550's power and 5VSB.

2.3 Running the BIOS Setup Program
In most cases, the computer will have been properly set up and configured by the
dealer or SI prior to delivery. However, it may still be necessary to adjust some of the
computer's BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) setup programs to change the system
configuration data, like the current date and time, or the specific type of hard drive
currently installed.
The setup program is stored in read-only memory (ROM). It can be accessed either
when turning on or resetting the computer, by pressing the “Del” key on the keyboard
immediately after powering up the computer.
The settings that are specified with the setup program are recorded in a special area
of the memory called CMOS RAM. This memory is backed up by a battery so that it
will not be erased when turning off or resetting the system. Whenever the power is
turned on, the system reads the settings stored in CMOS RAM and compares them to
the equipment check conducted during the “power on self-test” (POST). If an error
occurs, an error message is displayed on screen, and the user is prompted to run the
setup program.
2.4 Installing System Software
Recent releases of operating systems from major vendors include setup programs
which load automatically and guide users through the entire process of operating
system installation. The guidelines below help to determine the steps necessary to
install your operating system on the computer hard drive.
Note!
Some distributors and system integrators may have already preinstalled system software prior to shipment of your Vehicle Mounted
Computer.
The BIOS of the computer supports system boots-up directly from the CD-ROM drive
whenever it is connected using a USB interface. Insert the system installation CDROM into the CD-ROM drive.
Power on the computer, or reset the system by pressing the “Ctrl” + “Alt” + “Del” keys
simultaneously. The computer will automatically load the operating system from the
diskette or CD-ROM.
When presented with the opening screen of a setup / installation program, simply
follow the onscreen instructions. The setup program guides users through
preparations of the hard drive, and installation of the operating system.
When presented with an operating system command prompt, like, A:\>, then it is
necessary to partition and format the hard drive, and manually copy the operating
sys- tem files to it. Refer to the operating system user instructions about partitioning
and formatting the hard drive.

2.5
Installing the Drivers
After installing system software, the computer is ready to set up the AMD chipset,
VGA, audio, LAN, and touch screen functions. All the pre-requisite drivers are stored
on a CD-ROM disc entitled “Drivers and Utilities” (Check the correct wording on the
CD, which can be found in the accessory box.)
The utility directory includes multimedia programs. Some drivers and utilities in the
CD-ROM disc have their own text files which help users install the drivers and understand their functions.
These files are a very useful supplement to the information in this manual. For more
details of driver installation please refers to Chapter 5 to 10 of this manual.
Note!
The drivers and utilities used for the TREK-550 are subject to change
without notice. If in doubt, check Advantech's website or contact our
application engineers for the latest information regarding drivers
and utilities.
2.6 Programming Function Keys and GPIO/CAN
BUS
The Vehicle Mount Computer provides five function keys, GPIO and CAN bus as
shown in section 2.1. These functions must be activated with the correct software,
that’s why we provide an AP library for customers to design their own software. Refer
to Appendix C for more detail.

hardware, including instructions
on setting jumpers and connecting
peripherals, and how to set
switches and read indicators.
Be sure to read all the safety precautions before beginning the
installation procedure.
Sections include:
Jumpers Setting
4.1 Setting Jumpers and Switches
It is possible to configure the In-Vehicle Computing Box to match the needs of the
application by resetting the jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical switch. It
consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip, often protected by a plastic cover that
slides over the pins to connect them. To “close” a jumper, connect the pins with the clip.
To “open” a jumper, remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper has three pins, labeled 1,
2, and 3. In this case, connect either pins 1 and 2, or pins 2 and 3.

A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers. If there are
any doubts about the best hardware configuration for the application, contact the
local distributor or sales representative before making any changes.
An arrow is used on the motherboard to indicate the first pin of each jumper.

Once the ON_DELAY is over, the system will stay On or OFF, depending on the
BIOS setting “POWER-ON after Power Fail”.
If “POWER-ON after Power Fail” is set as ON, the system will be powered ON.
If “POWER-ON after Power Fail” is set as OF, the system will stay OFF and you
could press the power button to turn on system.
The system is under normal operation.
At this time, the Ignition is OFF, and OFF_EVENT_DELAY is starting to count
down.
This duration is OFF_EVENT_DELAY and it is ranged from 1 to 18000 seconds.
When the OFF_EVENT_DELAY is over, the system will send a power button
signal to the OS and the user application should prepare the shutdown process.
The HARD_OFF_DELAY is starting to count down.
This duration is HARD_OFF_DELAY and it is ranged from 1 to 18000 seconds.
When the HARD_OFF_DELAY is count to zero, the system power is removed
abruptly to avoid extra and abnormal power drain from car battery.
This parameter is fixed with a value of 60 seconds.
The system stays off.

When the system is ON, and
(1) the car battery voltage (DC input) is lower than LOW_THRESHOLD (at T6)
(2) and this situation lasts for LOW_DELAY,
, then the system will send Power Button signal to OS (at T7) to start the shutdown process.
At this time (T7), the LOW_HARD_DELAY is starting to countdown.
Once LOW_HARD__DELAY is over, the system power is removed abruptly.
LOW_DELAY is ranged from 1 to 3600 seconds.
LOW_HARD_ DELAY is fixed with a value of 60 seconds.
Note:
How the low-battery event is raised or canceled:
The minimum value on LOW_DELAY parameter is 1 second. If the car voltage remains lower
than the LOW_THRESHOLD in the duration of LOW_DELAY, the low-battery event will be
raised and immediately send a power button press signal to OS.
During the duration of LOW_DELAY, if the car battery voltage is back to be higher than
LOW_THRESHOLD, the LOW_DELAY will be reset to predetermined value and stop count
down.
Therefore, the LOW_DELAY parameter acts as a filter to prevent incorrect low-battery-event
from happening.

1. Off Event Delay: It means after 5 seconds delay from receiving of ignition OFF
signal, EC controller will send a shutdown event to make system start shutdown
process
2. On Delay: It means after 2 seconds from receiving of ignition ON signal, EC
controller will send a power-on event to make system start booting process.
3. Low Delay: It means after 30 seconds delay from receiving of Battery Voltage
LOW signal, EC controller will send a shutdown event to make system start
shutdown process.
4. Hard off Delay – it means after 60 seconds from shutdown event, EC controller
will force power cut off at the same time.
5. Low Hard Delay – it means after 60 seconds from Low Voltage shutdown event,
EC controller will force power cut off at the same time
6. Read current status: Execute “Power management test”, the Battery Voltage
Level has 12V and 24V, you may set from 0~65 levels, press “Get” to know the
value you set.
7. Set the value
The buttons which indicates by blue squares can SET the value you want to the
system.
8. Battery voltage level: You could set the LOW battery voltage value by changing
level 0 to 40. For example, if you’re using 12V battery, and you set level as 50, it
means the LOW battery voltage value is 10.147 + 50 x 0.0146 = 10.877 V.
Checks which source you’re connecting. DC supply or 12V or 24V battery.
Check the ignition signal and see if it’s ON or OFF.

Dead reckoning
We will need a 3-axis accelerometer that our software can talk to.
We use this to characterize driver behavior such as hard accelerations,
braking, and cornering. This also can tell us other significant information
that can be used in accident reconstruction, etc… This one of the crucial
items that we asked for in our specification and our customers’
expectations are making this a definite must have in our system. We won’t
be needing any dead reckoning functionality at this point in time… this is
something we may want to include in the future but in order to get cost
down we have decided to forgo this at this time. Please confirm that we
will have access to this or another accelerometer.

G- sensor
A code example is ready for customer reference. This code example ONLY
introduces how to access the G-sensor under Windows XP/XPe, but users
must control the G-sensor and develop their SW application by themselves.
Therefore, customer can decide how to set the sensitivity value when to
trigger G-sensor to send signal to CPU and to back end server through
WWAN module. G-sensor is located on the motherboard inside the
TREK-550. Please refer the link
(http://www.analog.com/static/imported-files/data_sheets/ADXL345.pdf) for
the G-sensor datasheet.
