Trimble unveils handheld computer for railroaders

Just two days prior to the opening ceremony of Railway Interchange 2015, Trimble released Juno T41 R-AEI, a rugged, handheld computer with an integrated ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID capability designed to read both the rail-industry specific automatic equipment identification (AEI) tags and the electronic product code (EPC) tags used worldwide.
