Under the motto “Discover intelligent sensors. Innovations to simplify railway operations”, Frauscher took evidence at InnoTrans 2018: The technology leader proved that wayside sensors will continue to play a central role in the railway industry in the future – if they start harnessing digital ideas.
Christian Pucher, CMO Frauscher Sensor Technology, says:
“We are essentially pursuing two strategies: On one hand, we are further developing existing products with ideas arising from digitalisation. On the other hand, we are building on completely new approaches that only became possible with digitalisation. This includes, for example, the use of distributed acoustic sensing in the railway sector. Thereby we are able to solve key challenges faced by railway operators today.”
The stream of visitors at InnoTrans showed that this concept is well received. Explaining the lively interest, Pucher continues:
“The demand for precise data is increasing – especially with the rising introduction of digital solutions such as cloud based systems. To this day, wayside sensors are the most reliable source for this. The ideal of many operators, however, is to reduce the number of components on the track at the same time. At InnoTrans 2018, we were able to present several solutions that meet the requirements of this field of tension.”
