Advising PJ Messtechnik GmbH on the conclusion of a research and cooperation agreement

SAXINGER advises PJ Messtechnik GmbH (PJM) on the drafting and negotiation of an R&D contract for the development of a new automatic freight train system solution, which was concluded with SBB Cargo and Rail Cargo Wagon Austria GmbH (RCW) in May 2017.

Newly developed communication and cloud solutions, together with sensors, make it possible to automate train preparation in the near future. With this system solution, the first step is to integrate the automatic brake test into semi-automated train preparation. According to the contract partners, the pilot project is a milestone for technological development in rail freight transport. The system solution to be developed will be tested on pilot trains.
