We recently introduced a flexible GEDO CE Trolley Systems that adapts to work on various rail gauges," said Ron Bisio, general manager of Trimble's Railway Solutions Business. "Now, with the introduction of the latest system for track clearance scanning applications, the GEDO Systems can deliver a wider range of applications to enable users to increase productivity and minimize track occupation while improving the safety of railway operations."

The basic Trimble GEDO Scan System consists of the Trimble GEDO CE 2.0 Trolley System, Trimble TX5 3D Scanner, Trimble S8 Total Station, Trimble TSC3 Controller, and the Trimble GEDO Scan Field and Office Software.
