Bogie IQ

Revolutionizing railcar maintenance and safety with integrated monitoring technology

A first-of-its-kind telematics system that is integrated directly into the bogie, the Bogie IQ® technology monitors the changing conditions of a wheelset and the performance of the brake system without the need for wireless sensors.

Smart maintenance for smarter rail operations

The Bogie IQ configuration makes the IQ Series gateway much more than a tracking device, providing maintenance-responsible parties and railcar owners with the information needed to reduce costs, help increase safety and improve overall operating efficiency. One device per bolster provides real-time onboard health monitoring while also delivering GPS benefits such as Dynamic ETA, first- and last-mile validation and accurate mileage.

Supply Chain Visibility™

Enhance maintenance planning and asset management with real-time, actionable insights

The Supply Chain Visibility™ software application for Bogie IQ wheel and brake health provides a quick and easy means to manage by exception and review actionable information immediately.


Installation as easy as 1-2-3

The IQ series gateway can quickly and easily be installed on any Amsted Rail® bogie. The Bogie IQ configuration is  accessed through a simple over-the-air upgrade.

The device’s strategic mounting location provides for reliable detection techniques to ensure optimal onboard monitoring.

Device association is quick and easy using built-in Object Character Recognition (OCR) and barcode scanning
No specialty tools or hardware are required to install the device on the bogie
