More Safety for Railway Traffic with Artificial Intelligence

  • This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine Issue 3 2022.

How do we make rail traffic safer? How do we avoid accidents with vulnerable road  users? EYYES GmbH has been asking itself these and many other questions about traffic safety for years. EYYES specialises in camera monitor systems and artificial intelligence  for the rail sector, with locations in Austria and Germany.

It all started with the RailEye®  as a replacement of the classic exterior mirror by an electronic camera  monitoring system. RailEye®  provides very good image quality and meets the highest safety requirements  according to the SIL1 standard. This means that the images are transmitted to the driver without delay  and with an enlarged field of view to reduce the size of the blind spot. RailEye®  consists of several highresolution cameras and provides a better overall view of the vehicle’s exterior. Particularly in heavy traffic, for example in the morning rush hour, the system can be a huge support for the railway driver. This  system has just been selected by Albtal­Verkehrs­Gesellschaft mbH (AVG) and Verkehrsbetriebe (VBK)  Karlsruhe for retrofitting on to existing vehicles, and it has already been in use for many years on  Leipzig’s trams.

Right at the spotlight are the new driving assistance solutions based on artificial intelligence with deep  neural networks. With the Front Collision Assistant from EYYES, a new timeline is beginning here in the  railroad. The system recognises all road users and classifies objects precisely into vehicles, people and  cyclists from close range up to a distance of 80m. Then it generates an image of the traffic situation in  front of the vehicle and calculates the movement of all detected objects and relates it to the movement of  the vehicle. This all happens continuously in a few milliseconds and thus almost in real time.
