High Resolution Train Imaging System for Security and Mechanical Inspection Strategies
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/04/16 -- Duos Technologies Group, Inc. (OTCQB: DUOT), a provider of intelligent security analytical technology solutions, has been awarded a $1.2 Million contract from Ferrocarril Mexicano S.A. de C.V. (Ferromex) for a complete train imaging system. The system will be based on Duos Technologies' proprietary Railcar Inspection Portal technology, the company's latest innovation that combines several proprietary intelligent technologies and sub-systems using analytical algorithms to process and evaluate a broad range of data from multiple sensor technologies. The system will be installed on Ferromex's main line and will operate at train speeds of up to 110 Km/h (70 mph).
"We look to embrace smart technologies with a focus on increasing operating efficiencies, improving our safety record and decreasing dwell times of our rolling stock. We believe that the Duos system will help us improve system-wide security as well as safety and efficiency by taking advantage of preventive maintenance strategies and reducing network costs associated with current inspection processes," stated Hugo Gomez, Chief Operating Officer for Ferromex.
"Our railcar inspection portal system substantially improves effectiveness of not only railcar inspections through high resolution 360-degree imaging of the railcar, but also incorporates critical security features," stated Felix Krupczynski, EVP & GM for Duos Technologies. "Monitoring and maintaining the structural health of railcars and its environment is important to ensure secure, safe and efficient railroad operation and is a paramount focus of today's global rail industry."
Gianni Arcaini, Duos Technologies Group's CEO stated, "We are very pleased to forge this partnership with Ferromex, Mexico's largest rail operator. We expect to deploy several additional systems in the near future throughout Mexico. Our library of automated inspection strategies is rapidly expanding, and represents a major growth path for our company in this application space. This advanced technology is a complete solution for transportation applications, which is expanding to also cover transit rail and related infrastructure."
Ferromex is a private rail consortium that operates the largest railway in Mexico with a combined mileage of over 6000 miles of track covering the major industrial and commercial zones in the country while connecting to the rest of the world through eight seaports and four border crossings.
