Investment in freight rail networks is on the rise, both in developed and emerging economies, worldwide. In the US alone, it’s a $60 billion industry that consists of 140,000 rail miles operated by seven Class I railroads. Yet once railcars leave the yard, monitoring their location and status goes well beyond what traditional PTC systems offer.
We know that running a 21st century rail operation requires a next-gen solution. Get the edge intelligence you need to optimize logistics for lower dwell-time, delays and downtime. Build a network of mesh sensors that monitor the health of railcars, locomotives, and tracks. Leverage cloud analytics to uncover deep insights into when wheels, brakes and other components require maintenance. Trace & track hazardous materials, such as molten pig-iron transported in specialized torpedo rail cars. Our solar-powered IoT edge devices offer visibility and control over your entire rail ecosystem of powered and unpowered assets, resulting in measurable gains in productivity, safety, and the flexibility to scale exponential global growth in trade.
