Kawasaki Locomotive Mounted Autonomous Track Geometry Monitoring System (LATGMS)
Available from Kawasaki Rail Car, Inc.
Kawasaki has been delivering track monitoring devices to the Japanese marketplace for over 25 years. After an extensive three year test with a U.S. Class 1 railroad, the LATGMS provides an advanced track maintenance planner. The system can be mounted securely on a locomotive and provides critical data, more frequently, faster, and more precise serving both the needs of maintenance planners and field repair personnel. No more waiting for track time for your rail monitoring equipment. The data from LATGMS can be transmitted nearly real time to customer database or to a proprietary software suite offered by Kawasaki Track Technologies.
