Rail Signaling

One large city suggested that replacing its rail signaling system could take 50 to 100 years. Humatics has devised a better way: technology to locate every vehicle on the system providing a common operating picture of how the system works and where performance impediments exist.

  • Quick and easy installation and maintenance
  • Works reliably and accurately where other solutions can’t
  • Minimize equipment on the right-of-way
  • Know where work trains are and how they’re being deployed
  • Currently working on projects in New York City

Worker Safety

In most public transportation systems, the train operators are unaware of the people “collaborating” with the system: passengers and maintenance workers. Humatics coordinates the location data of both people and vehicles to allow for safer operations. That means doors open where they are supposed to and crews are alerted when a train is heading their way.

  • System-wide position information reduces the potential for collisions
  • Speed-based alerts help operators safely navigate the system
  • Workers and operators are alerted when rail vehicles and people are in proximity

Rapid Transit

For rapid transit in major cities, Humatics helps deliver better service and improved safety for the city population by updating and enhancing legacy systems with a flexible, modular wireless solution. This allows operators to know where all their buses are at all times so they can track speed, improve platooning and reduce accidents by improving safety signaling.

  • Links bus location to safety applications reducing intersection wait times and improving public safety 
  • Improves throughput by linking location data across the system from light rail to bus
  • Updates and enhances the system with a fast, flexible, and affordable infrastructure

Right-of-Way UWB Network

With a common operating picture, transit systems can seamlessly leverage the same UWB infrastructure across a multitude of applications ranging from track and train maintenance to revenue service operations. With quicker installs, Humatics provides robust train positioning technology that can scale easily and be deployed quicker than competing solutions.

  • Track work trains to optimize Capital Construction work orders and improve safety
  • Protect workers on the tracks by alerting them of an oncoming train and alert trains about worker proximity
  • Monitor Revenue Service trip statistics, count cars and identify accident causes
  • Speed up CBTC deployment and reduce wayside equipment with UWB localization
