Joint forces to develop load/unload sensor


The German railcar lessor VTG and Netherlands-based Intermodal Telematics (IMT) have started a joint engineering programme to develop, produce and install a complete new railcar sensor – applicable on all VTG railcars – for measuring the load/unload status.

The completely new and unseen sensor, suitable for all types of VTG railcars, will continuously measure the load/unload status. The information will then be transmitted to IMT CLT units or ITSS interface 2 enabled devices and be ATEX certified.

The development of this sensor is another step towards VTG’s digitalization of its railcar fleet.
