ORCHESTRATION TODAY AUTONOMY TOMORROW

Your Locomotives With Intelligent Orchestration.

HUMAN/MACHINE ORCHESTRATION

Operator-led, task oriented paradigm for both preplanned and ad hoc operations.

COMPUTER-CONTROLLED MOVEMENT

AI-based train handling that supports operator-led mission-based orchestration.

PRECISE, REPEATABLE, SAFE OPERATIONS

Algorithmic control that consistently provides optimal productivity of operation.

STANDARDS BASED OPEN PLATFORM

Facilitates external integration for advancing technology and evolving business environments.

Safe, Efficient, and Predictable Rail Operations

Our fully scalable automation interface is built for safety and productivity.

Increase Situational Awareness and Safety

“Orchestration by Mission” relieves the operator of the train handling micro details so that operators can focus on the environment, the location of their fellow workers and other nearby trains. This improved situational awareness helps enhance safety for all employees in the yard. Removing the engineer from on board the locomotive reduces human factor risks.

Greater Operational Control and Consistency

Railspire takes care of the train handling details – such as grade, slip, tonnage, length, tractive effort and braking horsepower, so the operator can concentrate on getting the job done. With Mission Control, the operator gives intuitive instructions to the locomotive and it takes care of the handling. Think about moving a 100 car covered hopper train through a grain loading facility – 63.5 ft at a time, or think about flat switching a manifest yard to build up an outbound consist. The engineer sets their mission for the locomotive, and is able to monitor the train, loco and yard to ensure safe, accurate, efficient and consistent execution.

Improve Efficiency and Lower Operational Costs

With Railspire managing the train handling, missions are executed exactly to the operator’s requirements with algorithms to optimize locomotive effectiveness and maximize track and yard throughput.  Operators can be centrally located and manage missions in multiple territories.

One operator, multiple trains, multiple territories, all working to optimal safety and efficiency.

Increase Network & Yard Throughput and Velocity

Railspire locomotives work around the clock to ensure the safe and productive use of assets, labor, and resources. Moving a road train off the main line and into the yard, switching, loading and unloading cars — all these operations are improved with Railspire train handling.

Enhanced Visibility and Business Intelligence

Railspire integrates with modern and legacy locomotives to help operating practices and mechanical teams understand the dynamic data generated during train handling. This intelligence helps minimize maintenance and repairs while extending the life of the motive power and rolling stock. This rich data can help with training and process improvement initiatives.

Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.

Retain Your Best People With a Safer Work Environment

Keep valuable team members longer with a less harsh environment that promotes safety and a better quality of life.

Railspire’s train management allows operators to intuitively work with technology to simplify complex tasks and to work in a secure, safe, and climate controlled remote location. Additionally, Railspire helps to manage multiple trains in a variety of territories. The location and work environment options make for more desirable positions, provide additional upward mobility and career opportunities. This helps the company recruit and retain the best talent.

Built Around Your Needs

Scalable Digital Network Operations

Network Communications

Railspire can utilize public or private cellular infrastructure for communication, ensuring a secure and seamless connection between the operator and the locomotive. This allows operators to be on-site or remote.

IT Applications

RESTful APIs allow new or existing back office applications to access information. Missions generated externally, by in-house or third-party systems, can be pushed to Railspire locomotives, enabling advanced and more sophisticated orchestration schemes.

Secure Railroad software3

IT Security

Authentication can be integrated with and controlled by railroads. A role-based security model guarantees access only to authorized equipment. Multi-factor authentication systems, including time-based one-time passwords, are supported and encouraged. Communications are always encrypted and information can be segmented by the railroad’s preference.

Shippers

Railspire offers shippers the opportunity to improve the throughput and safety of their rail facilities while lowering total costs. Train handling optimization allows your full workforce to interact with rail equipment, resulting in more cars moved over fixed plant and equipment. The benefits of indoor and/or remote work locations improve recruiting and retention of operators.
