Ubisense Automates Rail Yard Management with New Real-Time Location System

Transit Yard Manager for Rails precisely and reliably locates locomotives to improve rail yard operations

DENVER — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 3, 2011Ubisense (AIM: UBI) today introduced Transit Yard Manager for Rails, a real-time location system (RTLS) that automates yard operations and improves efficiencies and productivity. By precisely locating rolling-stock in both indoor and outdoor areas, operators gain an unprecedented level of visibility into workflow which helps to improve all areas of rail yard operations.

Transit Yard Manager (TYM) is a complete integrated solution that measures the location of rolling-stock using best-in-class sensors and translates that into actionable business intelligence through an intuitive software application. Because rail yards significantly impair the performance of most location systems, TYM is built on Ubisense’s ultra-wideband (UWB) real-time location system (RTLS) which is specifically designed to provide accurate, reliable location data in very challenging circumstances.

“Transit Yard Manager for Rails was developed as a direct result of customer demand,” said Adrian Jennings, vice president of technology, Ubisense. “Rail operators consulted with us to explain their long-time challenges associated with manual rail yard audits, and asked Ubisense to develop a solution that could help automate operations. We developed Transit Yard Manager for Rails to meet their needs, and it is already being used in operations as diverse as commuter light rail and national heavy freight.”

TYM for Rails provides rail operators with several real-time location benefits, including:

  • Location of rolling-stock anywhere in the yard, indoors or out
  • Reduced number of personnel required for yard auditing
  • Real-time visibility of assets to operations and scheduling departments
  • Integration of all existing software such as maintenance, dispatching and scheduling into a unified dashboard view
  • Precise dwell-time measurements in the maintenance shops and in the yard
  • Improved staging to reduce late pull-outs
  • Real-time consist assembly
  • Real-time view of available tracks
