The Mobile Phone Detection System technology is integrated within Wi-Tronix's Wi-PU.

USA: Mobile asset monitoring technology company Wi-Tronix has launched a Mobile Phone Detection System which enables railways to monitor train crew compliance with their individual policies on the use of mobile devices in cabs.

The Mobile Phone Detection System can identify powered and transmitting devices which are receiving an inbound call, placing an outbound call or communicating data. Custom algorithms ensure that the signal is originating from inside the cab rather than surrounding locations, and then apply rules based on the railway’s specific mobile phone policies to determine if a possible safety violation has occurred. A notification is then sent to a pre-determined list of approved people.
