The A.I.-Enabled Railway

A.I.-enabled Railway

A.I. provides businesses in every sector with opportunities to differentiate their services and become more competitive. What’s perhaps most exciting is the almost limitless ways it can be applied; from enhancing core operations and customer service, to security monitoring and quality control.

Take this project we completed for the railway industry as an example. We used A.I. to build an intelligent tool called Distributed Fibre Sensing (DFS), which allows businesses to harness data from train tracks to increase growth and safety. Here’s how it works.

The A.I.-Enabled Railway

Distributed Acoustic Sensing

Trains travel alongside fiber optic cables that are flowing with valuable untapped data. While optical fibers generate high-resolution signals, it’s been difficult to extract detailed information from these signals in the past. Now, the evolving capacity of A.I. enabled tech is changing that.

By enhancing Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) or other similar devices with A.I., we can tap into the information already available within our fibre optic cables to detect patterns and convert them into vital business information.

Distributed Fibre Sensing (DFS) doesn’t only improve your efficiency. It also frees your business growth from the constraints of current technology. It takes rail security to the next level.

The A.I. enabled railway allows you to train traffic, pinpoint your issues within just a few feet, prevent accidents, and ensure crew safety.

We’re also currently applying DFS across perimeter security networks. This is for event detection on fences and boarders, including climbing, cutting, scrabbling and digging.
