AMCS says that its telematics system provides more than just a monitoring tool In September 2020 French job site safety specialist AMCS Technologies will launch a new telematics system called IoT Lifting. The company claims IoT Lifting enables crane fleet managers to remotely monitor site productivity in real time, record crane activity, and conduct remote diagnostics.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# Tailored information can be generated using IoT LiftingIoT Lifting is available via a web platform and as a mobile application for Android and IOS platforms. In physical form the system comes as a SIM card that is added to AMCS’s DCS 61-S anti-collision system. Once installed, the system collects information about each crane, generating tailored statistics according to each site and company.Information available to IoT Lifting users includes mapping of sites and remote viewing of screens – namely AMCS’s supervisor monitoring (SUP 61) and in-cab anti-collision (DCS 61-S) screens. Information from the DCS 61-S anti-collision system, such as wind speed or slewing angle, are also available in IoT Lifting.The system can also be used to neutralise the crane’s anti-collision and prohibited zone functions within a limited radius, once the permission of the operator has been obtained.All information can be downloaded, analysed and shared. The system, says AMCS Technologies, is more than just a tool for monitoring job site productivity and crane activity; instead, it can provide a deeper insight into a job site’s productivity.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#
BOSNIA & Hercegovina Railways (ZBH) has been fortunate to secure from German Railway a fleet of rolling stock to help it restore services to its 1021 route-km war-torn network. Eight diesel locomotives, 28 wagons, a tamper and ballast plough were included in an initial consignment of rolling stock dispatched to Sarajevo towards the end of last year. Part of the aid package originally agreed two years ago covers driver training at German locomotive depots and in Bosnia-Hercegovina.DB Head of Procurement Wolfgang Gemeinhardt who has overseen the deal said that restoring rail services in Bosnia was ’decisive for economic reconstruction’. One project would see car maker VW send components by rail from Germany to a Bosnian assembly plant, so creating jobs that would allow refugees who had fled to Germany to return home.Later shipments of aid material from Germany will include maintenance equipment and passenger coaches. o
