What is PROXICOM?
PROXICOM is an advanced railroad worker warning system designed exclusively for metro-rail operations. As a member of the SCADACOM family, PROXICOM is a secondary safety system that will integrate with your existing safety and operational rail systems or with SCADACOM, also from Willowglen Systems.
PROXICOM provides real-time locations of track workers in relation to approaching trains and hazard zones. Alerts are automatically generated by the system and received by both track workers and train operators when an approaching train exceeds a configurable distance threshold or time-to-arrival threshold. Audible and visual alerts along with physical vibrations can be configured to complement current safety procedures. PROXICOM sends a loud audible and visibly flashing alert to the workers with wearable devices (PROXICOM Tags) and the Train Operator minimizing the chance of a potential collision, injury, or loss of life.
