Autonomous Rail Solutions

Partner with the team who helped engineer, manage and deliver the world's first heavy haul freight railway.

Calibre is at the cutting edge of fully automated driverless heavy haul rail technology network management.

Our Autonomous Rail team are at the forefront of intelligent infrastructure solutions. Calibre has played a central role in delivering state-of-the-art automation technology with existing train management systems and infrastructure in the world's first fully automated driverless heavy haul rail network.

For Resources and Mining operations the implementation of fully automated heavy haul rail can deliver improved performance through increased rail capacity and productivity, improved rail efficiency and better safety outcomes.

Cycle times are reduced by negating the requirement for driver changeovers, no waiting for drivers at yards or mines and higher speeds with lower variability.
