The railway industry experienced unprecedented change in 2020. As rail transport gets back on track post-COVID, governments and rail operators are looking for innovative ways to reopen safely and deliver a reassuring passenger experience. Station safety, security, railway maintenance, and operational efficiency will be crucial in regaining the public’s trust. Advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) edge computing, and deep learning technologies are enabling railways to automate manual processes, provide touchless experiences, and helping improve capacity management – while staying in compliance with health and safety protocols.
Many transport venues have already accelerated their adoption of transformative technology to help protect public safety – and show passengers it’s safe to travel again. Forward-thinking business recognize the opportunity to modernize their core technologies in order to meet today’s challenges while positioning themselves for future success.
Locomotives, railcars, stations, and other infrastructure are already equipped with hundreds of sensors and cameras that deliver rich data to help railway operators maintain the safety and security of passengers and cargo. Railroads are also utilizing historical data to enable predictive maintenance and anticipate problems before they occur. Machine learning continuously provides insights into operations, inspection, planning, and programming. Operators are leveraging smart technologies to deliver integrated digital experiences to passengers at every turn.
But this is just the beginning. Transformative technology will be key to post-COVID resiliency. Better days are ahead. Intel and its ecosystem are uniquely positioned to offer the components and solutions to power the industry forward.
