Onboard Data and Information Systems Usher in the Era of the Smart Railway
The global rail industry has long needed modernisation and system upgrades. Legacy equipment and networks strain under the pressure of increased demand for capacity, in addition to changing expectations and regulations from passengers, industry associations and governments alike.
All these factors have led to the emergence of the smart railway system. Smart railways use the latest technologies – such as 5G, edge computing, Internet of Things (IoT), big data, cloud computing, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and global positioning systems (GPS) – to improve safety and quality of service.
This technology is used to manage rail operations more efficiently by sharing data across rail infrastructure components. Today’s smart railway solutions include, but aren’t limited to:
- Passenger information
- Safety and security monitoring
- Rail communication
- Real-time geolocation tracking
- Smart ticketing
- Rail and freight operations management
