The technology automatically captures components' locations, as well as the servicing each part has received. By knowing this information, the company can better manage its fleet of passenger cars and locomotives, and be sure that all parts are in working order.

To ensure its rolling stock's safety and effectiveness, the rail operator must track the conditions of the components installed on its passenger cars and engines, to verify that they are in good working order. If an item requires repair or is due for maintenance, it is removed from the car or engine and sent to one of the firm's three maintenance centers, also known as depots. Because hundreds of such components are being serviced at each of maintenance center at any given time, tracking those parts and ensuring that they receive the appropriate servicing can be challenging, according to Hong Kong RFID Ltd.
