    Over the years, Alta Rail Technology has developed dedicated hardware for dedicated functions: an On Board Computer, a Data Acquisition Module for Locomotives, a Communication Module for transmitting information from the train to the dispatching center, an End of Train Device, among others. The PLCART comes to allow a unique hardware inside and outside the locomotive promoting savings in hardware, spares, training to the railway companies. The equipment was conceived based on an ARM CORTEX STM…

    The On Board Computer was designed as a safety equipment that later evolved to become a productivity tool. It provides two major safety features: Electronic Fence, that enforces the limits of an authority through the implementation of a breaking curve that stops the train before the end of the session block where the authority ends; Dynamic Speed Control, through its ability to stop the train in an over-speeding situation. The OBC has also an important role in helping the train engineer to …

    On the Control Center, the ETC has a set of applications which assists the dispatchers to safely and efficiently control the movement of trains on the railway. The central component is the Safe Train Control (STC), a scalable solution that operates in both signaling and non-signaling environments and is independent of the communication infrastructure adopted. The software follows AAR General Code of Operations Rules and ensures that two trains do not occupy a segment of the track in opposit…
