SENTINEX – Low Cost Level Crossing warning system
SENTINEX is a network of electronic collision prevention devices (CPDs) comprising on On-board devices called Loco CPD for locomotives and Gate CPD installed at Manned and unmanned level crossings. The Loco and Gate CPDs use radio communication for passing the command messages when they are within a radial range of 2.
Loco CPD uses inputs from Global positioning system for determination of train location, speed, direction of travel, and time. SENTINEX provides a “Train approach” a train approach warning to road users at level crossings. At Manned LC gates, the approaching Loco CPD can also detect the gate open condition and warn the driver to reduce the speed.
