The French-based company, designs and sells connected solutions for railway maintenance, from railway-certified IoT sensors to data analysis platforms, all based on artificial intelligence.
Predictive maintenance is the next big shift. For both railway operators and infrastructure managers, preventive or condition based maintenance programmes will not be enough to overcome the approaching challenges facing the railway industry.
Preventing failures and defining the optimal maintenance regime for infrastructure and railway vehicles based on their life-cycle and cost will need data analytics and artificial intelligence. A higher competitiveness being the ultimate goal of the predictive maintenance, it needs to be implemented with the help of trustworthy partners.
SNCF, TRANSDEV, RATP and CFL among many others are already relying on Stimio’s IoT solutions.
The company is developing and selling its Oxygen IoT suite, which consists of Oxygen Edge for data acquisition sensors and Oxygen Cloud, its enriched data recovery platform. This comprehensive solution frees its customers from the complexities of IoT projects (networks of ultra-low consumption sensors, telecommunications, applications developments, etc.), thus letting them focus on business data with significant added value. By combining AI and machine learning technologies, the platform predicts future behaviours and failures in order to better anticipate breakdowns and enable optimal service availability. The data collected and enriched by Stimio can be easily integrated into its customers’ information systems in order to be exploited. A recent webinar with IBM presents how the EAM, Maximo Health & Predict and Oxygen can co-operate to enhance maintenance operations – see the video below.
Stimio’s solutions are already deployed for the following applications for passenger operators:
And for railway infrastructure:
Sand is used to assist with braking and traction of rail wheels. With STIMIO's IoT solution, you'll always know the sand level of your silos.
Stimio will be present as an exhibitor and Bronze Partner at "The Rise of IoT and Big Data in Rail 2022" from May 17th-18th.
To ensure uninterrupted service and safety of the infrastructure, the monitoring of catenary tensioning is essential for the entire network.
Stimio explains how their Oxygen Solution makes it possible to analyse the behaviour of the different compressors installed on trains.
Stimio keeps IoT monitoring on track for high-value rail and utility assets with Quectel GNSS and cellular modules.
STIMIO raises €1.7 million for the digitalisation of rail maintenance, one of their aims is to accelerate international development.
STIMIO’s IoT solutions, including remote, real-time monitoring, are being used to monitor Fret SNCF’s freight locomotive starter reservoirs.
STIMIO will present as an exhibitor at the 7th Railway Forum on September 7 & 8 2021. Visit them at stand K10.
Following on from their 5-year framework contract with Stimio, SNCF has placed an order for 140 additional MELI IoT communication gateways.
STIMIO and Wirepas announce a partnership to deploy massive scale networking of IoT devices within the railway industry.
STIMIO announces the signing of a 5-year framework contract (2020-2025) for the supply of IoT connected devices to its client SNCF VOYAGEURS.
STIMIO explains the importance of train door condition monitoring and maintenance and shows how the RAILNODE device can help.
Stimio uses its RAILNODE certified rail solution to help the potential deterioration of batteries and reduce train disruption.
