Teknisk Ukeblad just released an article on railway efficiency, pinpointing how the use of affordable, easy to install railway monitoring sensors will directly lead to a dramatic rise in precision, punctuality, and competitiveness.
Going from time-based to condition-based maintenance has long been a goal for the railway industry. The solution? Well, it seems to be sensors. A lot of sensors – preferably ones that are cheap and simple to use.
While some railway operators are using sensors that cost millions of kroner, CEMIT’s cost anywhere between 5 and 10,000 kroner. And even though quality over quantity is usually the preferred order, CEMIT has found a solution that meets both: Digital Twin technology.
“With the help of acoustic sensors, deviations in the sound of both tracks and railway sets can be intercepted. Machine learning then shows which unit, which fault, and which location the deviation takes place. If you have enough data, the precision is remarkably high.” says Are Sandersen, Group CEO.
CEMIT is on a journey to redefine sustainable transportation by digitalizing the world’s railways. As of now, the industry is struggling to make efficient use of its resources. It is time to change that with affordable and reliable sensors.
