Remote Train Car Detection for Train Yard Mashalling
Railways present many difficulties for sensing equipment. As train cars pass from one sensor to another at changeover locations, track controls are activated to handle switching of subsequent cars. The harsh and dirty environment can be damaging to standard sensors.
Rugged IP67 M-GAGE Wireless Sensor Nodes embedded at various points in tracks can detect the presence of train cars and transmit this data back to the Gateway device and a control system for accurate remote monitoring of train car location and marshalling.
