Inventor and InventHelp Client Develops Safety System for Trains (BRK-1123)

Share Article

Founded in 1984, InventHelp works to submit ideas like the E.O.T.3 to appropriate companies for their consideration.

"I am a railroad engineer, and while making shove movements with the train I was totally relying on the conductor's verbal commands, which could be mis-communicated from time to time," said an inventor from Birmingham, Ala. "I thought that modern technology could be put to effective use improving train safety and functionality."

He developed the patent-pending E.O.T.3 to give the engineer a real-time view of the rear of the train. The system eliminates the need to track the positioning of the rear of the train using a counter. It also provides the engineer with a brake-pipe pressure reading throughout the train. The invention ensures that the engineer has a visual display of clearings. All of this is designed to improve railroad safety and offer added peace of mind.

The original design was submitted to the Birmingham office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
