D-Rail provides everyday status information regarding your railway. It provides a relative condition of the railway, trend analyses, and automated alarms; on tracks, trackbed, catenary, third rail, and ATC/ ERTMS balizes. Its sensors are developed with cutting-edge technology to be completely trained independent and non-intrusive. One sensor can pick up billions of points of data every day. Installed on any train, tram, or metro it will measure every driven centimetre. It makes real-time analyses of all collected data, transforming it to information to be able to act upon and that’s what makes its solution outstanding.
The US-based start-up HUM Industrial Technology offers predictive monitoring solutions to railroad shippers and railcar owners. The start-up uses wireless Internet of Things (IoT) sensors for automated safety monitoring and prediction of wheel and bearing failure, as well as detection of oil or gas leakages. Moreover, the start-up provides a live global positioning system (GPS) tracking solution that offers a comprehensive overview of fleet location and history. The start-up helps rail operators reduce maintenance costs by enabling early detection of potential failures.
