Rail & Marine

Continuously increasing the operational efficiency in railways and shipping is a must for staying in business and maximizing profits. Automation and testing systems can help operation and maintenance teams to achieve their goals and stay ahead of the competition.

State of the art tools for state-of-the-art fleets

See how our cutting-edge technologies can build performance monitoring and testing systems to improve operational efficiency, manage an aentire fleet or test critical parameters.

Structural and Ship Motion Monitoring

SITEM created a structural and ship motion monitoring commercial system certified by the Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) that can detect environmental conditions and the ship’s structural behavior in response to those conditions by using NI CompactRIO and NI LabVIEW to develop a standardized, customizable ship motion monitoring system.

Remote Condition Monitoring for London Underground

London Underground took advantage of the accuracy, reliability and flexibility of NI hardware and software to implement an innovative system to reduce the lost customer hours experienced on the Victoria Line. The system is forecast to reduce lost customer hours by 39,000 per year—an estimated £350,000 savings per year in passenger disbenefit.

Reduce NOx Emissions from Ship Engines

DANSK TEKNOLOGI rapidly developed a low-cost selective catalyst reduction (SCR) system for ship engines to monitor and reduce NOx (nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide) emissions from the Danish naval fleet and fulfill stringent environmental regulations, by using NI CompactRIO and LabVIEW.

NEW VISION Technologies  developed a system to monitor the conditions of a segment of the Paris Regional Express (RER) by measuring rail movements and helping the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP) automatically alter its maintenance schedule as necessary, by using NI LabVIEW software and the NI Vision Development Module.

Monitoring System to Evaluate Fishing Vessel Performance

META created a performance monitoring system (PeMoS) for commercial fishing vessels to evaluate their energy usage under different operating conditions by combining the benefits of the cRIO-9075 with the NI 9870 and NI 9219 modules to create a rugged, semi-permanent monitoring system and using this hardware to acquire, elaborate, store, and send vessel energy parameters to an FTP server through a dedicated WiFi connection.

Asset Monitoring System for Railway Infrastructure

INSPECTATION develped and deployed a flexible yet standard monitoring system that synchronizes channels using GPS clocks and transmits data to a server using 3G communication channels, to monitor different electromechanical assets in a railway infrastructure, ensuring reliability and safety with minimum downtime, by using NI CompactRIO hardware and NI LabVIEW system design software.
