Wi-Tronix®, the industry leader in high-value mobile asset monitoring, announced today its continued commitment to safe rail operations with its Attention Assist and In-Cab Audio Alerts solutions. Attention Assist assembles critical, time-sensitive information during locomotive operation, which is made available to the engineer/driver via an in-cab easy-to-read display. The In-Cab Audio Alerts further enhance safe train operations with notifications provided to the engineer/driver with an in-cab speaker.

“Since 2000 train passenger ridership has increased 50 percent and freight rail traffic has hit an all-time high*; therefore, it is more critical than ever that railways are safe,” stated Larry Jordan, President of Wi-Tronix. “At Wi-Tronix we are committed to improving the safety, reliability, and efficiency of rail operations through continuous innovation.”
