TECHNOLOGY and solutions company Trimble, United States, announced on February 8 that it has acquired rail inspection systems manufacturer Beena Vision for an undisclosed fee.

Beena Vision will become a part of Trimble’s engineering and construction sector. Trimble says the acquisition will add Beena’s vision-based data collection to its existing data aggregation and analytics tools.

Beena Vision provides vision-based wayside detectors for the rolling stock maintenance market. Its systems provide detailed condition assessment of train components ranging from wheel surface condition to full train inspection.

The wayside systems, coupled with software applications and image analysis technology, enable operators to manage fleet maintenance through automatic measurements and inspections. Real-time alarms, alerts and reports enable significant reductions in maintenance costs and increase fleet availability.
