Investing in GPS receivers for precision positioning
Wabtec is implementing Septentrio GPS receivers in its latest GoLINC platform as part of its PTC solution for freight railroads in the United States. Septentrio receivers are also being installed as position reference modules along 50,000 km of track. They will provide GNSS corrections to the rover receivers aboard the locomotives.
Wabtec’s GoLINC system, comprising networking, communications and applications management platforms, makes trains smarter by collecting numerous parameters about the train and its route. GoLINC is integrated with Wabtec’s PTC solution. (ben)
