Lowest Operating Cost Per Mile
Penn Machine has pioneered the North American wheel
market with more than 400,000 units in service and a
reputation for safety excellence, improved asset
utilization, and the quietest ride.
Solid Wheels
Resilient Wheels
Our industry-leading solid and resilient wheels provide:
* Improved rider comfort with less noise and vibration
* Longer operating life and lower maintenance costs
* Less tire and track wear with decreased failure rate
Jersey grade crossing saw an increase of
trespassing violations on Thursday and
Friday nights between 5:00 p.m. and
8:00 p.m. This information can help
inform a railroad owner's partners in
law enforcement of when to patrol a
certain crossing. The data also helped
identify violation rates for different categories,
such as cars, trucks, bicycles
and pedestrians. In another example,
Zaman says pedestrians at one crossing
had a significantly higher rate of
non-compliance with safety rules than
other categories, which can help inform
actions taken on an educational
or engineering front. A third example
Zaman pointed to was the information
collected on where in the crossing
activation cycle violations took place.
At one of the observed crossings, most
violations occurred as the gates were
rising. However, Zaman pointed to
a group of violations that took place
when the crossing gates were horizontal.
He noted this was a group to target
with educational efforts as they were
most at risk.

and if you're only measuring fatalities
then you're only managing that, " explained
Zaman. " [With the AI-aided
system] you can manage to a much
deeper level. "
In addition to the FRA funds, the
team was awarded a grant through
the Federal Transit Administration to
develop the hardware elements of the
system and received a Consolidated Rail
Infrastructure and Safety Improvements
(CRISI) in June 2022. The CRISI grant
will see the Rutgers team, researchers
from the State University of New Jersey,
with support from Amtrak, the Louisiana
Department of Transportation and
Dover and Rockaway River Railroad,
demonstrate the AI-aided monitoring
system on five grade crossings in Connecticut,
Massachusetts, New Jersey
and Louisiana. The CRISI grant will
see an enhanced version of the system
deployed to review trespassing trends,
understand the effectiveness of applied
solutions and bolster future trespass prevention
initiatives.
