General Motors Corp.'s Electro-Motive Division recently added SmartSignal Corp.'s Equipment Condition Monitoring™ software to its IntelliTrain locomotive monitoring system.


The software is designed to help railroads more quickly detect mechanical problems and optimize maintenance scheduling.


IntelliTrain enables railroads to track locomotives using a Global Positioning Satellite, remotely monitor locomotive health and operational status, and locate and diagnose potential repair problems, according to a prepared statement.


By coupling the predictive maintenance software with IntelliTrain's locomotive monitoring capabilities, railroads can provide their customers more consistent service, said Curt Swenson, EMD director of marketing and e-business.
