An enhanced tracking and communication system, Willowglen’s Situational Awareness of the Field Environment (SAFE) provides control centre operators with real-time locations of on-track workers in relation to approaching trains and maintenance vehicles.
Enhanced Worker Safety
Control room supervisors have added assurance that a worksite is secure with SAFE’s automated location updates of both the workers and approaching trains. By increasing this spatial awareness and reducing the risk of a hazard for both parties, the likelihood of an incident in greatly reduced.
The wearable tags, designed with worker safety and productivity in mind, provide a visual and vibration alert without affecting performance. The result of this increased productivity is reliable scheduling, for both field maintenance crews and ultimately, passengers.
Leveraging a high-performance control room database, SAFE is IoT ready and holds unparalleled scalability, facilitating future expansion and site upgrades.
