Progress Rail’s Talos train automation system leverages cutting-edge technology to control the train throttle and dynamic brakes. Talos incorporates track topology, train consist information, route data and historical analysis to build a unique and optimized driving strategy resulting in significant improvements in fuel and/or time efficiencies.
By adapting to train behavior and customer operational objectives, Talos offers:
See how Talos compares with other Energy Management (EM) products on the market.
In this example, a railroad consisting of 250 locomotives using 200,000 gallons of fuel could save over $18 million using Talos.
Battery-Electric Locomotives (BELs) are even more efficient with Talos. The chart below shows the ways Talos and BELs work together to increase performance and maximize fuel and battery energy usage.
