New M/W systems from MRT Holdings

Written by 

MRT Holdings has introduced two new systems designed to help freight railroads and transit agencies improve track geometry inspection operations and work-zone sign management.

The MRT Holdings Track Geometry System enables customers to take control of their inspection processes through a simple, cost-effective platform designed for mass deployment on any vehicle. The system features modular hardware, wireless sensors and a modern software utility, all of which make it easier for railways to perform inspections and automatically transmit reports to a back-office utility.

The use of state-of-the-art inertial guidance technology eliminates the need for bulky sensors inside vehicles. A wireless tablet simplifies the interface compared to existing alternatives.

The Remote Sign System is a two-piece product that can be deployed quickly to reflect work zones or other protected areas of track. The system frees users from having to manually raise and lower signs on a daily basis. Additionally, users can monitor the real-time status of all deployed signs remotely through a web-based utility.
