Austin, Texas, July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/– infovo, a solution dedicated to reducing traffic delays and accidents at road crossings, today announced a long-term strategic agreement with a cloud-based emergency response platform, RapidDeploy. The partnership will provide railroad resistance data to public safety organizations using RapidDeploy’s Radius Tactical 911 map.
With more than 200,000 railway crossings across North AmericaWith previously unavoidable railroad crossing blockages, many responders are delayed every day by TRAINFO solutions leveraging a network of acoustic train sensors and proprietary machine learning technology to provide emergency responders with predictive information about a rail crossing blockage.
Sensors have been installed Outside the railway property and on the right of the highway, Allow cities and communities to own and operate these sensors. TRAINFO data is then integrated into RapidDeploy’s Radius 911 Tactical Map and Nimbus Cloud Aided Dispatch, giving call takers and dispatchers real-time situational awareness to select and route first responders based on travel time, not just proximity.
“The data provided by TRAINFO is at the core of our mission to reduce response times, and we are excited to work alongside TRAINFO, the Federal Railroad and the communities to solve this long-standing challenge for first responders,” Stephen RocherCo-founder and CEO of RapidDeploy.
For the first time, emergency responders can know where, when and for how long a railway crossing is closed. By displaying accurate predictive rail transit information in RapidDeploy Radius up to 30 minutes before a blockage occurs, TRAINFO and RapidDeploy provide public safety organizations an unprecedented level of situational awareness, improved unit selection and guidance to avoid blockage of railroad crossings.
“The Radius platform is TRAINFO’s most effective way to provide predictive information about obstruction of railroad crossings to public safety professionals. Viewing TRAINFO data along with the real-time situational data already provided by RapidDeploy makes them an ideal partner for accessing the public safety market,” he said. Gareth RimbleCo-founder and CEO of TRAINFO.

TRAINFO prevents traffic delays and accidents at railroad crossings by helping vehicles change lanes before they encounter a train. The company has pioneered technology that predicts traffic delays and obstructions at railroad crossings up to 30 minutes before a train arrives and integrates this information into roadside signals, traffic light management systems and emergency dispatch software. As the exclusive provider of this information, TRAINFO is the leader in reducing traffic congestion and emergency vehicle delays at railroad crossings. Founded in 2016, TRAINFO has quickly become the preferred choice for government agencies seeking effective and affordable innovations to solve problems related to rail transit.
RapidDeploy is the industry’s only open, integrated response platform, transforming 9-1-1 call centers of any size into data-focused enterprises. RapidDeploy achieves new levels of situational awareness and reduces 9-1-1 response time by seamlessly integrating third-party data to ensure it is available when, where and how remote dispatchers and first responders need it. The company’s cloud-native platform includes analytics, mapping, dispatch, and first responder applications. To learn more, visit rapiddeploy.com.
