For railcars, asset tracking and condition monitoring are critical to ensure real-time visibility into the state and location of assets. While railcar solutions have historically been filled with basic “off-the-shelf” trackers with capabilities limited to location tracking and mapping, Particle’s next-generation intelligent Tracking System allows companies to deploy more intelligent tracking systems to support more complex industry-specific use cases. These use cases include:

  • Monitoring critical railcar components to improve fleet visibility
  • Delivering alerts of critical events via geofencing
  • Monitoring parameters like temperature, fuel consumption, and acceleration.
