Rail transport control in Iraq

Problem

After the military and the political situation stabilized, the Iraqi Republic Railways faced a problem of restoring regular railway lines, including the one to Basra, the largest port of the country.  When the railway lines opened again, some issues appeared, though:

  • Trains’ monitoring systems were damaged;
  • Fuel thefts were often covered by the train engine’s high fuel consumption; 
  • Trains’ arrivals and departures were often delayed;
  • It was essential to know the train’s speed in the moment of accidents (that often occurred due to the absence of a special security barrier).
  • It was necessary to be able to monitor the train’s speed when passing the dangerous sections of the route (damaged bridges, for example).

Solution

Wialon partner, Integrated Solutions, offered a complex solution to the Iraqi Republic Railways:

GPS tracker Galileosky Base Block + Escort Bluetooth fuel level sensor + Wialon notification module + NimBus

  • A tracker and a fuel level sensor were installed into every train to receive data on fuel fillings, thefts, and the total amount of fuel consumed. Now all the data is sent to Wialon, processed, and automatically sent to responsible parties in the form of reports;
  • To control schedule compliance, Wialon sends notifications to dispatchers in case of the trains late departures/arrivals, unauthorized stops, and arriving at a particular station;
  • With the help of Wialon SDK, the partner developed a customized interface to visualize data from each train in the form of charts; as for NimBus, it allows analyzing data through reports and, as a result, optimizing the work.
