Throughout our history, we have been at the forefront of railroad innovation. We continue to invest in broadening our already rich product and service offerings. We are helping our customers by creating smart, connected fleets to meet and exceed the needs of the railroads of tomorrow. We are addressing how we use the mountain of data coming from our locomotives, wayside communications, Maintenance-of-Way equipment and other rail products more effectively for our customers. We will innovate and invest to capture the power of data analytics, energy management, infrastructure improvements and more – all while providing world-class solutions for our customers.
ENERGY MANAGEMENT & TRAIN AUTOMATION
Progress Rail’s Talos™ Energy Management system leverages machine learning and massive computing power to analyze and optimize train routes – resulting in significant improvements for fuel and time. By adapting to train behavior, Talos™ delivers higher fuel savings, reduced emissions, improved train handling for safer operation and increased network capacity to impact railroads’ bottom line. For full optimization, our Automatic Engine Start/Stop solution – or AESS™ – monitors critical operating parameters during locomotive idle operation, safely and effectively shutting down the engine once all factors are satisfied.
COMPLETE CONDITION-BASED MAINTENANCE
Leverage operational data to reinvent how your railroad runs. Move from time- to condition-based maintenance, reduce costs and increase productivity with PR Uptime™ Suite to more effectively manage your operations. Advanced asset monitoring combines with our own Locomotive Monitoring Center (LMC) expertise to offer customized reports and streamline data delivery. As part of the PR Uptime™ Suite, Uptime Cloud offers secure data storage and distribution, easily integrated with railroad ERPs. Uptime Connect helps to bridge data collection and transmission safely, while providing an electronics platform to integrate on-board and off-board solutions. Uptime Analytics uses data to create troubleshooting recommendations before a potential problem occurs, translating to measurable value in the shop, in the yard and on the track. Together, these tools form the Uptime Suite to deliver the right insights to the right people, at the right time. The platform seamlessly integrates within existing day-to-day processes, and can offer coverage for your complete rail network.
