Grey is exhibiting at the Berlin Innotrans Trade Fair late September this year, the largest exhibition globally for railway technology.
Innotrans will see Grey Innovation launching their new Track Alert System (TAS) for rail safety.
TAS is a world first mobile automatic track warning system that provides an additional safety layer for track workers above the safety systems in place at the worksite.
There is no comparable product to TAS today; the Track Alert System far exceeds the current manual lookout system, which saw increased fatalities around rail infrastructure as a result of distraction, fatigue and poor communication.
TAS is a reliable and robust system, providing a novel use of sensors and correlation algorithm to allow train detection with a 100% detection success rate.
TAS is an easy to use, fast to install wireless system. It is also lightweight and portable, making it user friendly and ideal for short term rail maintenance.
TAS has attracted national and global interest from rail operators, and is expected to have applications in both private and public rail safety including mining and rail sectors.
