With freight transport and everyday passenger travel dependent on rail, unfaltering and continuous operation of the railways is essential globally. In fact, in the United States it is estimated that Class I railroads’ operations supported a staggering 1.1 million jobs, 219.5 billion USD in economic output and 71.3 billion USD in wages in 2017 alone.
Whether managing train lines in densely populated cities or transporting cargo across long distances, rail operators are recognising the safety and security gains that real-time vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications can provide. By utilising wireless and full node-to-node connectivity, such as Rajant Corporation’s Kinetic Mesh® mobile networks, the benefits of innovative rail applications and technology for automation, real- time tracking and greater control can be realised.
Freight transport plays a huge part in ensuring that essential cargo and goods are delivered. It is estimated that around a third of US exports move by rail. This makes everyday transport critical for many sectors, ensuring stocks of materials and equipment never dwindles. Traditionally, a single point of connection failure can run the risk of shutting down an entire network, leading to serious delays and increased pressure from suppliers. However, with resilient and fully redundant connectivity, the signal cut-out and operational faults can be avoided.
