USA: Trimble expands rail portfolio with Beena Vision acquisition

Trimble has acquired privately-held Beena Vision Systems Inc., a manufacturer of vision-based automatic wayside inspection systems for the rail industry, headquartered in Norcross, Georgia. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Beena Vision provides vision-based wayside detectors for the rolling stock maintenance market. Its non-contact measurement technology enables highly detailed condition assessment of train components, ranging from wheel surface condition to full train inspection, on trains operating in service and at high speeds. Beena Vision’s wayside systems, coupled with software applications and image analysis technology, enable train operating companies to manage fleet maintenance and operation through automatic measurements and inspections. Real-time alarms, alerts and reports enable significant reductions in maintenance costs and increase fleet availability for revenue generation.
Beena Vision systems are installed at most major North American Class 1 railroads as well as other worldwide train operating companies.
Beena Vision integrates with Trimble’s rail strategy and complements Trimble’s rolling stock asset management solutions, adding vision-based data collection to existing data aggregation and analytics tools. Beena Vision solutions, when integrated with the Trimble platform, provide train operating companies with a more complete picture of their rolling stocks’ on-board systems as well as the train components.
