The leader in truck performance monitoring
WID is a specialist railway supplier of innovative wayside monitoring systems and services for in-service inspection of rolling stock.
WID’s patented technology can enable a predictive condition based maintenance program using system wide defect thresholds; an essential tool to lowering the “stress state” of railways.
WID systems overcome the inherent limitations of traditional contact technologies. Not only are trucks that present a higher risk of derailment readily identified, but also incipient problem vehicles are trended and flagged before severe wear has set in. Operators can thus schedule timely cost effective repairs and avoid further expensive rolling stock and infrastructure damage.
WID has earned an excellent reputation for producing trouble free, accurate measurement systems, well adapted to the harsh railroad operating environment.
In cooperation with its Wayside Monitoring Alliance partners, WID offers the most comprehensive wayside monitoring solutions, from sensors to data management, analysis and reporting. Our customers include passenger, freight and heavy haul railroads across five continents.
