In this new era of digital transformation, using future-proof data platforms has immense potential for railway operations.
Operators are generating more and more data – from control command and signalling technology to infrastructure monitoring. In the course of digitalisation, data platforms allow existing and new data to be collected, intelligently bundled, and more efficiently used than ever before. With optimised data, the availability of railway infrastructure can be increased, and operations can be cost-efficiently adapted to existing as well as future requirements.
Why is intelligent data key to managing the myriad digital challenges of rail operators? Perhaps the most important advantage is the flexibility to monitor the status of the network and all parts of various systems. To do this, a system must collect and evaluate various existing or newly integrated data and make the results available as required. Intelligent data platforms offer clear advantages for operations, for example, through predictive maintenance. As a result, critical infrastructure conditions can be identified at an early stage and rectified quickly. Other maintenance and repair work can also be planned more precisely as required, whereas until now, they have mainly been scheduled according to fixed maintenance periods.
Frauscher Sensortechnik is a technology pioneer in the railway industry. For more than 30 years, the company has been breaking new ground with its products and services. This also applies to the intelligent use of data, since the latest technologies of Frauscher focus on the digital challenges that railway operators are facing. Frauscher’s solutions and services are combined with the established procedures for train detection to form a digital ecosystem (see Figure 1).
