SENSiS is a highly innovative railway vacancy detection system that features safe, precise and reliable wheel detection and offers new IoT capabilities like advanced sensor technology, integrated logic, and flexible adaptability through innovative networking. SENSiS shifts boundaries by gathering more precise data from rail tracks. The redesigned sensor architecture reduces cabling dramatically and allows for full redundancy. One processing unit can handle up to 16 sensors, which reduces the number of components compared to existing systems. Optimized and automated attachment details make installation as easy as possible.
