Congratulations to Network Rail and Connected Places Catapult for scooping a joint award at a prestigious industry event last night.
The two companies won the Safety Award at this year’s Railway Industry Association’s Railway Industry Supplier Excellence awards in London, for their collaborative work to take forward a technology called ‘geofencing’.
The technology uses wearable safety devices which alert track workers if they leave a safe work area through a loss of situational awareness. Find out more here.
Three suppliers who were part of the collaboration were Onwave, Tended and Track Tracker.
Awards judges commented that the entry from Network Rail and Connected Places Catapult “was a strong, powerful entry with impactful supporting evidence”.
