Testing of AxleRing GPS unit with AxleSensor accessories and testing leading to the release of the product for operation on railways.

The subject of the service for which funding is requested is the testing of AxleRing GPS Unit with AxleSensor accessories, specifically for the first phase of testing and testing leading to the release of the product for railway operation by an authorised testing laboratory, authorised to test products intended for railway operation. The results of these tests will then be described in measurement reports or technical reports and will be the basis for further development of the AxleRing product with AxleSensor accessories or for the implementation of performance verification and test operation.

 

The testing and subsequent trial operation of the GPS unit AxleRing with AxleSensor accessories for use in rail transport and the subsequent approval of the product for operation on railways will enable the Applicant to start serial production of this GPS unit and thus meet customer demand for this type of equipment. At the same time, the verification of the design principles and electrical wiring of the type of GPS unit under consideration and its conformity for use in rail transport will enable the Applicant to translate these verified design and construction principles into the development of other types of GPS and telemetry units, in particular for use in rail passenger and freight transport, in rail logistics, or in other specific fields of transport and industry.

Total Finder GC 092 26A conformity assessment and certification

The subject of the service, for which the funding is requested, is the conformity assessment of the GPS unit GC 092 26A according to Act No.90/2016 Coll., as amended, on technical requirements for products and according to Government Regulation No. 116/2916 Coll., as amended, laying down technical requirements for equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, with subsequent ATEX certification with an EU Type Examination Certificate.

 

The assessment of conformity of the GPS unit GC 092 26A for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, followed by ATEX certification with the EU Type Examination Certificate, will enable the Applicant to start serial production of this GPS unit with its unique technical solution consisting in autonomous power supply and implementation of a system for optimization of the use of electrical energy from the built-in power supply and to start its sales in the Czech Republic and other EU countries, thus satisfying the customer demand for this type of equipment. At the same time, the verification of the design principles and electrical wiring of the type of GPS unit under consideration and its conformity for use in hazardous environments will enable the Applicant to translate these verified design and construction principles into the development of other types of GPS and telemetry units, for example for use in rail transport, hazardous goods logistics and other specific fields of transport and industry.

Expansion of Positrex’s network of partners for the rail and container segments by promoting products at international trade fairs and exhibitions.

The aim of the project is to reach potential customers and resellers from all over the world with the new and completely unique GC092 TotalFinder product and the new features of the Positrex monitoring system for rail and container transport. We expect to find interested parties and subsequently enter into business partnerships with selected companies and establish a worldwide sales network for these products and services.

 

In particular, we will participate in four industry-focused exhibitions during the project. In addition, we will be publishing new promotional materials such as a company brochure, product sheets and brochures to support the effectiveness of this campaign. We will also restructure and update the company’s website for the purpose of the project. In social media and online campaigns, we will always organise a preparatory familiarisation campaign prior to the start of the exhibition, which will help to familiarise a wider range of potential buyers with our products and encourage higher attendance at a given trade fair.

The aim of the project implementation and its application in practice is to increase the efficiency, safety, sustainability and reliability of rail freight transport and to contribute to the competitiveness of rail transport and thus to the organisations using this transport. The implementation of the project will have a multiplier effect, where the applicant will create a competitive advantage for the entity that will be the first in the world to come up with a solution for comprehensive monitoring and telemetry of technical parameters and operational conditions of a freight railway wagon and its cargo from IoT sensors communicating with a system that processes data from these sensors through a central communication unit.

The project includes experimental software development (web application and mobile application) and industrial research of hardware – IoT sensors designed for sensing the states and variables from the rail freight car.
