Today’s mature digital technologies have the potential to revolutionize the operation of the transportation systems of the near future. At the same time, the expansion of rail services is a major policy objective of most developed economies in response to the climate emergency. With the advent of connectivity, intelligent onboard data collection, increased demand for rail freight routes, and ever more sophisticated passenger expectations are set to transform performance in the railways’ sector.
In addition of a seamless integration of multi-modal transport options, simplifying door-to-door journeys, thanks to autonomous and connected operations of rolling stock, advanced asset monitoring and predictive maintenance systems enable train manufacturers, infrastructure, and transportation system owners to complete their journey towards full servitization with sustainable new business models. Increased complexity, fast technology changes also bring additional engineering challenges that traditional engineering processes and methods may not meet.
Watch this webinar to explore the possibilities with the Intelligent Train:
- The key rail market drivers and how they are accelerating the adoption of intelligent industry solutions
