The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority has chosen dFuzion Inc.'s rMetrix® ride performance assessment system for ride quality monitoring of their commuter rail lines.

The assessment system revolutionizes the way ride quality data is collected, stored, analyzed and displayed. Incorporating cutting edge GPS and accelerometer sensors with an intuitive easy-to-use control software interface, rMetrix assesses ride quality, comfort and safety.

rMetrix is designed for the individual inspector, as well as for organizations, large and small, whereby inspectors can monitor, collect, and analyze geo-spatially correlated ride quality data and make safety and maintenance recommendations in real-time. With rMetrix, organizations can analyze and correlate ride data over time and geography to determine data trends.

rMetrix-A is designed for those organizations who need to continually monitor ride quality and track and vehicle safety conditions with limited inspectors or resources. Using assessment system for continuous track inspection activities leads to the rapid identification and prioritization of locations for corrective and preventive maintenance, as well as the detection of vehicle and track abnormalities that may impact passenger comfort, cargo integrity, equipment reliability and operational safety.

rMetrix®  is the result of research initiated by the Federal Railroad Administration, Office of Research and Development and dFuzion Inc.
