Pilot Schemes Showcase the Capabilities of Rail Vision’s Advanced Safety Systems

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

Operational trials with Israel Railways and Rio Tinto Iron Ore are demonstrating the capabilities and benefits of Rail Vision’s main line system.

Rail Vision provides advanced safety systems that lower accident risks, unplanned downtime and maintenance costs through advanced obstacle detection and classification technology.

Using the latest artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning and advanced sensor technology, it has developed state-of-the-art systems designed for main line and shunting yard environments.

These can be engineered to provide bespoke solutions for customers’ specific needs.

Advanced Obstacle Detection

AI, paired with electro-optic sensors and deep learning, enables the systems to detect and classify obstacles up to 2km ahead.

Monitoring a predefined area of interest, the system generates real-time visual and audio alerts for both the train operator and the command-and-control centre, and to date is the only system that can detect and identify a person at risk in time to avoid a collision.

In shunting yard environments operational dead zones can also be monitored. This enables safe and secure wagon coupling that – with Rail Vision’s one-of-a-kind pathfinder technology – can be done remotely.

Big Data Analysis

Rail Vision also offers a big data service add-on. This analysis of railway infrastructure and  surrounding ecosystems, through GIS mapping, allows ongoing infrastructure inspection, environmental trend analysis and image-based navigation.

Tailored reports are provided that support predictive maintenance, enhancing resource planning and quality assurance.

Rail Vision CEO Shahar Hania, said:

“By collecting and analysing big data you don’t have to wait until there’s a problem. You can monitor a situation and plan your maintenance ahead of time, which provides savings in terms of costs and downtime.”

Trailblazing Early Adopters

Israel Railways is one of the first rail operators to implement Rail Vision’s technology. This spring the partners completed a three-month pilot of the main line system on a freight rail locomotive operating in southern Israel.
