Duos in May announced a multi-million-dollar railcar inspection technology contract from CN; the new pact adds three additional Rail Inspection Portals similar to the units that were deployed around the Winnipeg, Manitoba area.
Duos said the new installations would be conducted at three main-line locations: two in the United States and an additional unit in Canada.
The systems will be based on Duos’ proprietary rip® technology, which combines several proprietary intelligent technologies and sub-systems to provide real-time images and data that are used for a variety of railcar inspection criteria. When the new systems are online and fully operational, CN will then have a total of seven Duos rail inspection portals deployed along their North American rail network.
“Our rip® technology not only substantially improves efficiency and accuracy of the mechanical inspection process, but it also significantly improves safety for inspection teams, which is of paramount importance in today’s global rail industry,” stated Noel Heiks, President and COO of Duos’ operating subsidiary Duos Technologies, Inc. “Monitoring and maintaining the structural health of railcars and their environment is vital to ensuring secure and efficient railroad operation. With these new deployments, CN will be able to more effectively track all rolling stock passing through its various inspection points and with the added assurance that our inspection portals are keeping both their people and their goods safe.”
