Light and Heavy Rail

New Technologies

Modern rail technologies and systems are now highly integrated. New technologies are constantly being introduced to respond to growing demands for safer, more efficient, operationally flexible, and higher performing railways. In revenue service these integrated systems must work effectively to support safe and efficient operation of trains, stations, and other service infrastructure. They also provide timely and accurate information to users, assist operators during any service disruptions as well as provide ancillary services such as operational performance information.

We Can Help You

The added commercial pressures to shrink timescales for designing and implementing new major rail projects in order to secure early revenue income is resulting in a challenging delivery environment. We can help you. RL Control is a true system integrator leveraging our long history in the industry to design solutions that will successfully integrate the most complex variables. We manage this added complexity with our highly competent engineers and support teams through our well defined and controlled systems integration work processes. Completing projects on time, on budget, and right the first time allowing you to meet your key performance and business objectives.
