RailVision specializes in the field of “Smart-Train” safety/security/predictive maintenance & Big Data;
The system provides visual data of the track’s surrounding utilizing a Unique real time algorithmic analyzes of inputs from our various onboard advanced sensors (thermal- Infra Red & visible Video).
real time recommendations are provided to the train driver via an onboard dedicated monitor, either as an automated emergency alert or as an operational notification assisting driving activities;
Automated warnings are provided simultaneously to train driver and to Command & Control center;
The System dramatically enhances available information beyond human eye sight and harsh climatic limitations (night, rain, snow etc.), and reduces driver cognitive load.
The system’s 2nd Gen. targets the next rail revolution- Autonomous train operation, thus providing “smart eyes” for the train.
RailVision conducted more than 12 successful field tests, e.g. DB-(Germany), Trenitalia-(Italy), ISR (Israel railway), creating a huge data file of rail environment footage as thermal and very high-Resolution Video Files.
RailVision participated in DB’s startup accelerator program (DB-MinDBox, Berlin LINK). DB’s MinDBox team, uses RailVision’s participation as a case study for fruitful cooperation (exceeding the acceleration period into ongoing discussions with DB’s highest levels). Additionally, RailVision has been selected as a participant in the prestige’s start up boot camp (transportation sector, Berlin)
The system’s robust POC has been completed early in 2017 and development of its 1st version product prototype is in a highly advanced phase.
