Trimble's rail solutions combine the latest in sensors and monitoring technologies with customized software and wireless communications to quickly and accurately capture the data needed to maintain and construct rail infrastructure or to manage rail transport assets. From the infrastructure planning, design, construction and maintenance phases to the operation, maintenance and repair of rail transport assets, the solutions streamline operations to keep rail projects on time and on budget.
Trimble's rail asset lifecycle management products manage the lifecycle of rail transport assets from operation through maintenance and repair. In 2014, Trimble acquired Nexala of Dublin, Ireland, providers of data aggregation and analytics tools for engineering and operations of rolling stock. In 2017, Trimble acquired Beena Vision of Atlanta, Georgia, a manufacturer of vision-based automatic wayside rail inspection systems.
The Trimble suite of solutions addresses everything from full fleet maintenance, real-time remote vehicle diagnostics, and component condition monitoring, through to in-service vehicle performance and driver performance management and timetable adherence.
Using this comprehensive portfolio of on-board and wayside condition monitoring solutions, rail companies can improve operational efficiencies, manage service levels and reduce costs, while ensuring that service is maintained to the highest level. Customers using Trimble solutions include South West Trains, Eurostar, SNCF, Irish Rail, the Go-Ahead group, Siemens, Arriva, Greater Anglia, BNSF and Aurizon among others.
