PRESS RELEASE: Kontron wins multi-million euro local transport technology order

Kontron AG / Miscellaneous 12.01.2009 Release of a Corporate News, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer / publisher is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Design win of over EUR 8 million for intelligent buses in Belgium Eching near Munich, January 12, 2009. Kontron AG, one of the world's leading providers of embedded computer systems, kicks off the New Year with a further multi-million euro order: the Walloon Transport Company in Belgium has opted for Kontron technologies for future complex applications. A corresponding master agreement entailing an order volume of over EUR 8 million has now been signed. As part of the first step, the plan is to equip over 2,500 buses from 2010 with an innovative system in the area of local public transport, which will ensure a significant boost in terms of safety, reliability, and punctuality. The networked embedded computers are based on particularly energy-saving and reliable Atom Processors from Intel, which optimally meet the high demands made of them. Using GPS positioning and GSM mobile modules, they guarantee efficient fleet management as well as reliable location monitoring and schedule optimization; FireWire interfaces allow for rapid data reconciliation at depot, and RFID technology allows the implementation of innovative types of non-cash ticketing. 'We've already started to develop these complex systems, and we are very pleased to have received an order that further strengthens our foothold in the local public transport segment,' commented Ulrich Gehrmann, Kontron's CEO. Numerous applications produced by the company are in use around the world, for example for steering driverless subway trains, on both local and high-speed trains, and in on-board PCs on buses.
