Railway Inspection

ONERugged N14T and N15T rugged notebooks ensure safety for railway operations
Challenge Solution Advantage

The safety and stability of railway transportation are of great strategic significance to the development of the national economy and society. In order to maintain the safe operation of the railway, it is necessary to rely on inspectors for regular inspection and maintenance. However, with the rapid development of railway transportation and the increasing complexity of railway networks, the manual inspection and recording methods adopted by the railway bureau can no longer adapt to today's increasing workload.

Railway Inspection

The daily inspection workload is huge, maintenance personnel need to be able to obtain the latest inspection data and reasonable inspection route in real time to reduce unnecessary waste of time. And need to maintain timely information sharing with other maintenance personnel to achieve efficient communication. However, the railway bureau's method of relying on workers to manually record inspection data on a regular basis and entering the system for statistics after the fact is not only inefficient, but also easy to cause inspection data loss or data recording errors. 

Railway managers are unable to grasp the duty status and walking routes of the inspectors in real time. In case of emergencies, they cannot get in touch with the inspectors as soon as possible, resulting in restrictions on timely and reasonable personnel dispatching and command. On the other hand, patrol inspectors cannot request remote support when facing failures that cannot be decided, resulting in problems that cannot be resolved in time.

In order to solve the above problems, the railway administration needs to adopt a ruggedized notebook that can adapt to the harsh environment combined with the inspection management system to intelligently improve the railway inspection process. ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notebook is light and powerful. As a device for recording data, querying information, and real-time communication with the background, it can assist field personnel to efficiently and safely complete railway inspections.


The ONERugged N14T/N15T notebook applies mature technologies such as video recording, remote wireless transmission, global positioning, and Internet of Things to the railway inspection system to realize on-site data recording, networking, sharing and other functions, which easily solves the railway bureau’s problems.


In daily work, dispatchers create inspection tasks and send them to designated staff’s terminals through the system. Maintenance personnel use ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notbook to download inspection tasks online and arrive at designated locations to perform tasks according to the inspection routes provided by the equipment. The manager can confirm the position dynamics and movement trajectory of the staff according to the GPS position reported by the ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notbook in real time, and check the inspection status through the network to prevent accidents and ensure the safe and stable operation of the railway.

Railway Inspection

During the inspection process, maintenance personnel use the notebook's numeric keyboard instead of paper and pen to accurately record the operating status and data of the equipment, simplifying the previous manual transcription and secondary transcription processes, saving time and money. When an abnormal problem occurs, the ONERugged N14T/N15T high-quality front camera and high-speed mobile network allow inspectors to communicate with the background in real-time via video, which is convenient for the dispatch station to mobilize nearby personnel to support or remotely guide the site according to the on-site situation The staff handles it to ensure smoother overall operations.


The  ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notebooks add reliability, convenience, speed and improve communication to railway operations. They are compact and portable and can be taken to any place where work needs to be done. The stable network connection allows railway technicians to communicate in real time while on the move. Powerful hot-swappable battery allows it to run for a full 8 to 9 hours on a single charge. The design of the battery can be replaced at any time to minimize unnecessary downtime, which makes the track inspection work more efficient.

Robust for daily use

The ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notebook has passed MIL-STD 810H and IP65 certification, and can withstand a 1.2-meter drop impact and extreme weather. The dual battery with long-lasting endurance can meet the needs of railway attendants who need to work continuously in long shifts.

Sunlight-readable screen

Professionals involved in railway maintenance, management and inspection must work long hours outdoors. ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notebook provides a clear and readable screen images under different lighting conditions indoors and outdoors. Whether in the sun or in the rain, the ONERugged N14T/N15T's highly readable screen can help professionals read the information they need whenever they need it.

Keyboard for fast data logging

ONERugged N14T/N15T rugged notebook has a full-size keyboard that can quickly record key data information during train track inspections or other tasks, making production more efficient. Keyboard input replaces paper and pen, making it easier to save and transmit data, thereby helping to achieve paperless and digital operations.

GPS for employee dynamic tracking

In railway track inspection, the problem of poor signal often occurs. The ONERugged N14T/N15T supports GPS + Beidou dual navigation, and provides real-time regional navigation and positioning services. Administrators can use it to verify the location of maintenance personnel.

Communication and safety

One of the biggest advantages of ONERugged N14T/N15T is their ability to communicate instantly in a variety of ways. With built-in WiFi,5G network and BT, high-speed data connections, and multiple wireless network capability, an inspector can always keep in touch with railway managers. And this communication capability not only helps keep operations running smoothly in real-time, but also keeps workers safer.
