Rail supplier news from Railhead, MOBI, WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff and EverBank (Jan. 22)


Railhead Corp. is supplying 390 locomotive digital video recorder (LDVR) systems and cameras to Apollo Video for installation on New Jersey Transit locomotives and cab cars. The technology, including inward-facing cameras, is being installed to support the NJ Transit's safety initiatives, Railhead officials said in a press release. The company's systems are designed and manufactured for use in heavy-rail environments. NJ Transit previously installed outward facing cameras on dual cab locomotives, as well as on ALP46A locomotives and multilevel cab cars.

BNSF Railway Co. has selected MOBI to provide mobile-device management across the railroad's network. The Class I will be able to use MOBI's cloud-based software to centralize mobility by integrating carrier data, master data management information, machine-to-machine data usage and corporate IT systems into single point of control, according to an MOBI press release. Additionally, MOBI software will save time for BNSF employees by replacing manual processes with automated approval routing, mobility ticket creation and inventory detail updates, MOBI officials said.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has named Joseph Pulicare president of the firm's U.S. transportation and infrastructure sector. He currently serves as chief operating officer of the sector. As president, he'll oversee planning, design and construction services for highways, bridges, transit and rail, aviation, as well as ports and marine. Pulicare has more than 30 years of experience, and previously served as executive vice president and chief executive for transportation for the Americas operations at an international consulting engineering organization. He's also worked as a program manager and principal engineer with New Jersey Transit. Pulicare succeeds Cliff Eby, who is retiring.
