InRob Ltd. ("InRob") (OTCBB:IRBL), a leader in the development and production of advanced wireless control systems and integrated solutions for unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), announced that it has developed an intelligent railroad crossing safety system to improve safety of railroad crossings, following InRob's expansion into the remote-control consumer market.

The presence of grade railroad crossings has always been a potential safety hazard to motorists and pedestrians. In the U.S., almost 90% of all rail-related fatalities are connected with railroad crossing and trespassing incidents, according to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). In Israel, concerns regarding crossing safety have heightened in the wake of two fatal railway accidents in the past 12 months.

InRob is now offering its intelligent railroad crossing safety system to Israel Railways to improve safety of railroad crossings, based on technological capabilities proven in military applications. The main components of the railroad crossing solution include advance detection devices and sensors, a sophisticated remote-control system and digital data link communication networks that relay information between crossings, trains and railway traffic control centers in real time. When an obstruction is detected on the tracks under specific conditions, the system assumes remote control of the train's braking system.
