Hitachi launch exciting new solutions at Railtex 2022

HICSE unveil their latest innovations in safety in rail marketplace with exciting new developments in two key areas.

Signalling a change to training

Hitachi has taken their simulator support to the next level with the launch of the NX Panel high fidelity simulation. This exciting new product will provide training support for Signallers in a real-time, real-world environment. Designed for use on touchscreen technology and accessible through a browser from any location it incorporates all the switch pulls, button pushes and associated sounds of a real panel, it even allows the user to add sticky notes!

Never has training been so realistic, so interactive, so visual and so REAL

Crossing the Line - advancing safety for trackworkers to a whole new level

Hitachi continues to work hard on working safe – with a further development and case use for their rail safety innovation, Trackside Guardian – a novel system that offers both increased safety and improved efficiency in parallel with existing processes

Further twists and turns have been made in the process, with Trackside Guardian sitting front and foremost and seen as a much-needed additional safety layer and giving a reduction in workload for the Signaller when work teams need to cross the Line.  

 This development has opened-up further discussions and possibilities to look at what other features can be implemented to increase safety and help Signallers to manage their increasing workload.

The bottom line is that working trackside can be dangerous
