RMD Sensors to Brazil

Railway Metrics & Dynamics is set to deploy its advanced train performance monitoring and derailment detection technology in Brazil, marking a significant milestone as the first deployment of such technology in South America. This allows RMD to showcase its state-of-the-art solutions to railroad clients in the South American market.

Railway Metrics & Dynamics has received an order for a fully paid, wide-scale demonstration deployment of their train performance monitoring and derailment detection equipment in Brazil. This will be the first deployment of such high-tech train monitoring equipment in South America.

RMD’s system performs real-time monitoring of rolling stock dynamics for the purposes of analyzing track conditions, changes to the track geometry, rolling stock conditions like flat wheels, asset tracking, instant derailment detection, and more. This advanced and real-time warning system is a game-changer for railroad safety and performance monitoring.

The Brazilian Railroad System

The Brazilian railroad system, known as the Ferrovia Brasileira, plays a crucial role in the country’s transportation infrastructure. Brazil has one of the largest railway networks in the world, covering thousands of kilometers across the country. The network is primarily used for freight transportation, including commodities such as soybeans, iron ore, and agricultural products – with passenger services largely concentrated to urban areas.

The Brazilian railway system faces several challenges, including infrastructure limitations, old equipment, and competition from other modes of transportation. Also, the country’s vast size and diverse terrain present logistical challenges for railway operations.

In recent years, Brazil has made efforts to modernize and expand its railway infrastructure. This includes investments in new tracks, signaling systems, and rolling stock. The government has also promoted the construction of new railway lines to connect key economic regions and facilitate trade.

A Scalable, Proven Technology

The Brazil deployment will begin in 2024 and will allow RMD to offer product performance demonstrations to railroad clients in the South American market. RMD’s performance monitoring system is applicable to both freight and passenger rail, including metros, urban trains, and high-speed rail.

The RMD system builds a connected network of Performance Monitoring Units (PMU) which communicate with each other, the locomotive, central train control, and anyone designated for reception of the real-time and recorded data. Urgent messages are relayed to the train driver through an easy to use “dashboard” on any connected device.​

This is very exciting, says Jan Lindqvist, CEO of Railway Metrics and Dynamics. This once again proves how scalable our platform is. This project will showcase our solutions to railroad clients in the South American market – using the same components, IT solutions, and workflows as in Europe..
