Keeping the Rails Safe – Even in a COVID World
Autonomous inspection, AI and big-data offer opportunities for planning efficiency and significant maintenance cost savings for rail.
ENSCO Rail’s Virtual Track Walk was the feature of the Washington Post Transportation section, Oct. 10, in an article titled “Virtual inspections: A solution to Metro’s late-night service cuts?” by Martine Powers.
The article discusses the challenges that the Washington Metro (WMATA) is facing in their track inspection program and describes ENSCO’s machine vision technology that can help WMATA address these challenges and significantly improve track inspection efficiency and safety.
