Digital solutions in rail

Digitalization and automation are essential to the future of rail. Safe and secure introduction of innovation must be managed.

Railways are seen as a sustainable and efficient transport mode. To capitalize on greener market demands, the industry must advance in a safe and secure way thus highlighting the need for digital services powered by domain expertise and best-in-class use of technologies. New digital solutions are changing how to design, construct and maintain railways. Stakeholders in the rail industry can benefit from a range of new tools to boost safety and improve maintenance practices. These tools will be useful to prevent sudden system faults, minimise service disruptions and the need for emergency repairs thus enabling better planning and more efficiency and save money.  Decision-making based on data for operation and maintenance use cases, and the potential to accelerate innovation, testing and commissioning are facilitated by technologies and paradigms such as big data, artificial intelligence and digital twins.
