Our projects

SmartPTT-based solution for transportation and logistics is used by one of the largest logistics operators in Brazil – VALE S/A mining.

When Ferrovia Centro-Atlântica, the rail logistic branch of VALE S/A mining, decided to replace their conventional VHF analog radio communication system, they chose MOTOTRBO platform because of its faster implementation and cost-effectiveness. For the dispatch software of the system, the company discovered an undoubted advantage in SmartPTT software due to its
customization possibility and friendly graphic interface for event monitoring and radio network bridging service.

SmartPTT-based solution covers 800 km of railroad and system extension is expected. The solution is applied for dispatch radio communication between several departments, including Maintenance, Operation and Rail Traffic Control. Such features as Digital Voice Dispatch, ARS, and GPS provide voice transmission, locomotive licensing, derailment detection and automatic locomotive path changing.
