Rail technologies need to be standardised in order to save costs and increase the appeal of rail to commuters and intercity travellers.
Despite this, new research reveals that AI can play significant roles in the railway industry, including optimising complex railway systems, detecting infrastructure faults/defects, enhancing customer service quality, and improving safety and security of urban train networks.
Due to its efficiency, cost-competitiveness, and environmental friendliness in comparison to other forms of transportation, rail transportation is once again being viewed favourably.
The Canada Railway AI Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Canadian national railroad corporation CN has awarded Wabtec a contract for the implementation of its precision dispatch system (PDS). PDS was designed to run trains in signalled and dark terrain safely and effectively.
Through end-to-end electronic communication of mandated directives and automatic implementation of authorities in dark areas, the system uses this data to provide advanced automation. The method lowers maintenance and operational costs and guards against human error.
A significant step toward train autonomy has been reached with the completion of Thales’ 18-month WinterTech Programme in partnership with Toronto-based technological scale-up Invision AI and Metrolinx.
This programme was designed to give increased situational awareness, safety enhancements, and operational advantages while verifying the performance and dependability of a rail-centric system.
A Metrolinx GO train equipped with the technology was run in shadow mode on numerous lines in Toronto as part of the project. Data was gathered by the train from a variety of sensors, including radars, cameras, and lidar, thanks to 4G/LTE capabilities that were cyber-secured.
The technology was then upgraded to recognise obstacles in all weather situations using the acquired data. Through sensors that track possible barriers for rail transit operators, this innovative system is anticipated to improve safety while supplying accurate real-time data for maintenance and operations.
