TekTracking describes the GLM as “a patent-pending sensor platform used to measure and verify the operation of gate arm lights used in grade crossings. The GLM, easily mounted to the crossing mast for direct view of the gate arm lights, addresses critical field-testing requirements for railroad grade crossings by enabling continuous monitoring of gate arm position and gate lights, specifically, gate light functionality and crossing gate integrity.”
Data, in the form of images and streaming video, captured by each GLM are communicated over a private communications network to TekTracking’s associated Edge Image Processor (EIP). The EIP is the master network controller for up to 64 nodes and performs image and video analysis to determine device health, and generates alarms based on anomalies or equipment malfunction.
The GLM is the newest field-installed component of TekTracking’s Connected Crossing technology, which incorporates several specialized sensors and processors interconnected to fully monitor all aspects of grade crossing performance in accordance with FRA 236 Part D Maintenance, Inspection and Testing requirements.
