CEMIT Visits Bybanen in Bergen

A week ago, CEMIT employee Jon Erik Nordskog visited Bybanen in Bergen to install a CEMIT Data Collector. Although the past year has been filled with digital meetings, the recent lighter travel restrictions allowed some of the team to head west and say hello in person.

 

During the trip, Sigurd Aanesen, Arve Stavrum-Tång, and Wathsala Perera joined Jon Erik to better understand Bergen’s tram system, see the facilities, socialize, and discuss business. In addition, the team reviewed how CEMIT can help reduce costs and increase train safety and reliability. Jon Erik happily shared some thoughts on the visit:

 

“It is such a pleasure to work with the people at Bybanen because of the way they embrace technology, as well as the time, resources, and energy they spend in digitalization. Not only were they super positive about our business, but they showed clear confidence in our ability to help them with their needs.”

 

The star of the show was the CEMIT Data Collector, containing an edge computer, LTE module, IMU sensor, and GNSS (GPS) sensor, and can be mounted on any surface, inside any train, anywhere in the world. The collector comes preconfigured, so installation is as easy as removing the protective film on the double-sided tape, mounting it to the surface, and connecting to power. Of course, because the roofs of many trains are made of metal, external antennas for GNSS (GPS) must also be installed. Even so, this is what makes the Data Collector so unique: ridiculously simple installation.

 

A huge thank you to all the people over at Bybanen for hosting the team and for standing as a leader in the digitalization of rail in Norway!
