Railroad Company Optimises Safety with On-Board Computer Upgrade 

This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine Issue 5 2021.

When looking to upgrade the hardware platform for its high-rail (road-rail) limits compliance system, an American freight railroad company turned to in-vehicle computing specialist Sintrones.

After an incident between a road-rail vehicle and a moving train highlighted the weaknesses of its existing high-rail limits compliance system, one American freight railroad company knew it was imperative that it upgrade its existing solution.

This was because the Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety’s railroad accident report Railroad Company Optimises Safety with On-Board Computer Upgrade from Sintrones declared that a contributing factor to the incident, in which thankfully nobody was harmed, was the incorrect use of the high-rail limits compliance system.

“Their older units had limited functionality and were lacking many of the latest features now available on the market. This enabled the high-rail limits compliance system to be turned off, which was a contributing factor to the accident,” says Alan Yao, Managing Director of the Sintrones Technology Corp.

“The incident brought to their attention the new generation of technology available to them, and the benefits it could bring in terms of safety, but also above and beyond.”

Upgrading High-Rail Vehicle Hardware

With the new solution, the rail company was looking to ensure it had a reliable authority limiter that could not be disabled by users and would guarantee that vehicles could only travel where they were safely authorised to do so.

This required a bespoke computing solution that would seamlessly integrate with the company’s existing software and equipment, consolidating into a single hardware platform that would meet its specific needs.

With years of engineering and product design experience behind it, Sintrones is renowned for its ability to provide computing systems that meet customers’ bespoke technical requirements, and this piqued the railroad company’s interest.
