Digitalisation in Rail

Digitalisation and the resulting utilisation of big data pave the way for train communication and predictive analytics in the railway industry. By deploying smart railway sensors, millions of data points are gathered and analyzed to improve the safety, security, and reliability of railcars. The ability to predict failures further allows rail operators to plan repairs, thereby increasing the availability of rail. Startups are developing IoT sensors for almost every element of rail infrastructure, including railcars, tracks, and signaling units.

Startup Solutions for Smart Rail Infrastructure

Spanish startup LIMMAT provides smart rail infrastructure solutions during the construction and operation stages. The startup offers its IMAS+ platform for predictive maintenance and condition-based maintenance (CBM). The platform combines IoT, big data, and machine learning (ML) to help railroad operators improve maintenance management and rail-fleet control. IMAS+ also helps reduce maintenance costs and increase fleet effectiveness and availability.
