Corporation, the pioneer of Kinetic Mesh Networks and provider of
proven, multi-frequency mesh networking solutions, today announced that
it will demonstrate its new Rail Car Power Generator (RPG) at Expo
Ferroviaria, taking place from April 1- 3 in Turin, Italy. Attendees
will be able to experience first-hand how the RPG works in concert with
the company’s field-proven line of wireless, kinetic mesh networking
technology to increase productivity and enhance safety in rail
operations – Hall 2, Stand 1004.
Now, more than ever, freight lines are looking for rugged, high
availability wireless broadband communication networks that provide rail
operators with real-time visibility into critical data on the health and
performance of rail cars. This is essential for enabling faster, better
decision making to reduce risk, prevent catastrophic mechanical failures
and keep workers safe. Compounding the issue, however, is the need to
keep these systems constantly powered across multiple moving assets.
Rajant’s Rail Car Power Generator meets this need by providing rail
operators with a low-cost, low maintenance solution that produces up to
50 watts of DC power from the wheel of a standard rail car. This power
can be used to charge a battery system, which in turn powers multiple
other sensors including the Rajant
BreadCrumb® wireless network. Together, these systems will keep
operators informed on the health and performance of rail cars, including
train speeds and locations, wheel sensors, freight status, fuel
consumption, traffic optimization and more. It provides the ideal
solution for modern rail communication needs, such as communication
based train control, video monitoring, sensor networks and remote
control at depots.
“Until now, rail operators have had limited to no visibility into
critical communications data on the health and performance of their rail
cars, largely because of the lack of a continuous power supply,” stated
Bob Schena, President and CEO of Rajant Corporation. “As the scope and
complexity of railroad data increases, so does the need for keeping
wireless, high availability broadband communications systems constantly
powered and connected. Rajant’s technology provides ‘always on’
connectivity and enables railroads to instantaneously and reliably
connect thousands of moving assets, eliminating a ‘black hole’ in the
Rajant Corporation’s Kinetic Mesh Networking technology provides reliable,
secure broadband connectivity in which reliability actually
increases as the network grows. Rajant BreadCrumb nodes interact with
the railroad data command center across a meshed, self-healing network
to provide critical, real-time information that touches all aspects of
railroad operations. The nodes rapidly adapt to any changes in the
network topology, assuring that IP traffic uptime and bandwidth are
Rajant solutions are based on the proven reliability of Rajant
BreadCrumb wireless, portable mesh networking nodes and its proprietary
InstaMesh® software, which enable continuous and instantaneous routing
of wireless and wired connections. The Kinetic Mesh networks created by
Rajant products allow for total network mobility, and this dynamic
frequency utilization provides the ideal connectivity for any customer.
In addition to the Rajant Rail Generator, attendees of Expo Ferroviaria
can learn more about Rajant’s proven portfolio
of networking solutions for the railroad,
& gas, mining, military,
responder, municipalities, service
provider and telco markets by visiting Hall 2, Stand 1004.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
