Miller Ingenuity: ZoneGuard roadway worker protection system

Miller Ingenuity’s ZoneGuard is an electronic roadway worker protection (eRWP) system that coincides with and strengthens existing safety rules. The product also exceeds FRA safety recommendations and regulations, according to the company.

The system is composed of portable or fixed Train Detection Modules, Train Alert Modules, and Worker Wearable Devices. The modules form ZoneGuard’s communication network that detects incoming track vehicles entering an established work zone. An on-track worker or work crew is alerted of the approaching vehicle on their worker wearable devices.

The train detection and communication network architecture provide warning times when detecting track vehicles. ZoneGuard provides coverage for long protection zones typically required on freight- and passenger-rail operations.

The eRWP system was engineered for to perform in all rail-related environments, including long curves, high-noise urban environments and directly under high power lines. The system also can be used for multi-track detection.
