Deploying the Trimble Solutions would enable CMRL improve its real-time status monitoring and analytics capability by accessing up-to-date fleet status, thereby reducing costs and improving safety, the company said in a statement.
To be implemented by Trimble and city-based partner KKM Soft, the project would be ‘one of the first examples of digital real-time, condition-based monitoring to be rolled out by a rail operator.’
Solutions would include Trimble R2M real-time remote diagnostics system and Trimble E2M engineering rail asset management system.
Together these systems would improve Chennai Metro’s ability to make data-driven decisions and streamline maintenance planning and execution, it said.
“Because Trimble’s rail asset lifecycle management products are an inter-operable suite, CMRL will be able to implement a seamless solution that meets their needs”, Trimble’s Rail Solutions Business, General Manager, Tomas Larsson said.
