Solutions for Rail Applications

Our experience in Railway applications has been primarily in hump yards, but has also included other areas of operation. We have assisted with process improvements at Canada’s busiest hump yard for the past four years. Ibridge has had success implementing the software design and development standards used in the electric utility industry into the railroad industry. This has resulted in significant improvements to control system reliability and performance.


Just some of the projects we have been involved with include:

  • Analysis and problem resolution for an existing Hump Yard Computer Control system.
  • Upgrade of Hump Yard Process Control System for increased production capabilities.
  • Hump Planning Tool for optimum use of the hump facilities.
  • Identification of performance bottlenecks.
  • Development of specifications for computer control systems.
  • Evaluation of vendors and assistance with procurement of new systems.
  • Year 2000 assessments and test for various embedded systems used in rail applications.
  • Upgrade of an engineering test and measurement system for railway track geometry.
  • Embedded Systems Design and development
