SL-GMS J/Developer Selected by FUJITSU for Developing Expressway Facility Management Systems
SL’s Java-based Development Tool Capable of Deploying Hundreds of Dynamic GUI DisplaysPress Releases, SL in the News, SL-GMS News
TOKYO – July 19, 2016 – SL Japan Corporation, a subsidiary of SL Corporation, has announced that Fujitsu Limited (FUJITSU) is using SL’s Java-based dynamic data visualization tool, SL-GMS J/Developer, for developing expressway facility monitoring systems.
SL-GMS J/Developer is an interactive, object-oriented GUI tool for creating graphical applications displaying real-time, dynamic data. SL-GMS has been running in over 10,000 mission-critical control and monitoring systems worldwide and its rapid development of content-rich, high-performance displays using the Java framework makes it an ideal choice for web-based deployments.
FUJITSU has long been a leading provider of consulting, development, operating services and network infrastructure for road and traffic management solutions such as ITS and Expressway Facility Management to ensure safe, secure and comfortable expressway operation and maintenance. For Expressway Facility Management, FUJITSU is using SL-GMS to develop systems for monitoring the operational status of devices installed in the roadway as well as for controlling those devices remotely.
A wide range of facility devices is set on the roadway to monitor critical infrastructure such as electric power receiving, private power generation, tunnel air ventilation, lighting, disaster prevention, road message signs and more. The operational status including abnormalities of these devices is collected by a fault-tolerant facility monitoring and control system and is monitored using GUI displays created with SL-GMS to provide around-the-clock visibility into critical expressway infrastructure.
An expressway facility monitoring system requires the development of hundreds of sophisticated monitoring displays for many management and remote control stations. With SL-GMS, graphic objects with dynamic properties like alarm color change, diagram connection movement and equipment on/off status can be easily developed using the SL-GMSDraw Dynamic Graphic editor. Created dynamic objects can then be reused to display different variables (from different monitoring sources) to quickly build and populate new monitoring displays. The dynamic behavior of the objects and displays can be previewed immediately in the SL-GMSDraw editor, making the development rapid and efficient.
Furthermore, the dynamic graphical user interfaces developed with SL-GMSDraw are deployed as extremely compact Java code by SL-GMS J/Developer, ideal for web-based central control and monitoring systems.
SL is a San Francisco Bay Area-based software company that develops real-time monitoring, visualization and diagnostic software for Global 1000 and mid-market companies whose businesses depend on complex, high-performance applications. The company has deep expertise in monitoring and management of custom, distributed applications running in heterogeneous middleware environments.
