Enabling a command center approach for predictive maintenance in railways

An automated rail infrastructure monitoring system supported by cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud and internet of things (IoT) will help improve safety and maintenance of railways. Benefits include:

  • Reduced physical human involvement and augmented workforce capability by enabling machine-vision-based inspection and analysis
  • Safer operations with reduced risks to the inspection staff and the bridge
  • Improved productivity with frequent inspections and continuous monitoring
  • Higher operational efficiency and better decision making
  • Enabling a command center approach for rail monitoring and maintenance in near real-time
