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.
EYYES successfully exhibited the first camera-based Front Collision Warning system for trains at the SIFER 2023 Expo in France.
