Wi-Tronix, LLC announced today that it will provide its advanced video analytics solution, Violet™, to Mexican Class I railroad, Ferromex. Violet™ provides both snapshots and streaming video and associated data to railroads through a cloud-based SaaS solution to help railroads to improve their operational efficiency and safety procedures.
Wi-Tronix, the leader in smart rail technology, announced this significant deployment as a further expansion of its existing relationship with the railroad. The companies previously had announced in 2016 Ferromex’s full-fleet deployment of the Wi-Tronix Wi-PU™, the company’s advanced on-board computing and SaaS-based data analytics solution.
This latest installation expands Ferromex’s reliance on Wi-Tronix to support its ecosystem for the collection and utility of operational-critical data. The railroad’s access to this information improves overall efficiency and ensures that critical safety information is available in real time to all areas of railroad management. It also further demonstrates the Wi-Tronix system’s expandability and its ability to grow with Ferromex into the future.
Violet™ camera and video analytics systems expand dramatically upon railroads’ traditional uses of locomotive digital video recorders (DVR). The Violet™ solution aggregates petabytes of video data in an Internet of Things approach to create actionable information from the locomotive video.
Ferromex will capitalize on Violet™’s camera system to further ensure the safety of its crew and the security of both its assets and its cargo. Violet™’s smart Visual Intelligence (VI) technology has the ability to provide the railroad with video analytics which can automatically monitor infrastructure and other mission-critical assets.
