Ground transportation

Mandate

Our customer wished to design and create a new generation of remote control for locomotives, and to have the design approved by rail operators.

Goals

  • To produce a functional and durable command system that would enable the customer to test its new products in the context of real-life applications.
  • To provide a finish that would give operators the impression of using the final product.

Results

  • Production of several sections that could be assembled by the customer.
  • Finish in several different colours, according to customer requirements.
  • The customer was able to assemble the housing while incorporating its own electronic components consistent with its own secret strategic expertise.
  • Simultaneous production of 3 housing units, 2 of which had a finish.
  • 1 housing unit was used for an internal test bench and the 2 others were tested directly by the operators to verify ergonomics and proper functioning.
  • The project was a success and the customer was able to move on to production.
