Six years ago, Rail Vision was founded with one goal to make the Rail industry better, safer, and more efficient than ever before with its ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System). Today the company is glad to be at the forefront of high-end electro-optical systems and a lighthouse for artificial intelligence dedicated to the rail industry.
Rail Vision developed an ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) for Mainline and Marshaling yards applications based on advanced electro-optics sensors and real-time artificial intelligence, paving the way to a safer, more efficient rail future. The company solutions reduce operational costs and increase efficiency in marshaling yards and intercity trains.
Using advanced obstacle detection & classification algorithms, Rail Vision solutions detect objects on and along the tracks more than a mile ahead – in real-time, in diverse weather and light conditions, resalting with acoustic and visual alerts to the locomotive drivers.
Those who visited Rail Vision at InnoTrans 2022 could see the ready-to-market developments and a small part of the company’s committed team. “InnoTrans 2022 was a tremendous success for us. We have met several new clients from America and made great progress with some, as we are the only company presenting ready-to-market solutions for Marshaling Yards and Main-Line trains,” Said Shahar Hania, Rail Vision Founder and CEO.
“Rail Vision’s innovative technology is a game-changer for the rail industry, and we remain committed to a successful future for both of our companies.” Said Dr Nicolas Lange, Chairman of the Board of Management of Knorr-Bremse.
“Rail Vision’s technology has the potential to usher in a new era in rail safety and provides a great compliment to our extensive global network of customers,” added Dr. Eichhorn, VP Digital Products at Knorr-Bremse.
Rail Vision completed several long-term pilots. The Main-Line solution on Israeli Railways Company operates on a freight line, and Rio Tinto autonomous train runs in Australia’s outback. Marshaling-Yard solution on SBB Cargo in the shunting yards. Both systems use Rail Vision high-end electro-optical arrays fused with machine learning systems that output audible and visual alerts. The clients could also see the cloud-based big data analysis and get various statistics.
All means of transportation have vision technology - cars, trucks, buses, ships, airplanes, and even motorcycles; Why should the rail industry be any different?
Locomotive traffic is rising, with more going on the rail each month at the rail crossroads and Marshaling yards; this will cause more accidents, leading to higher operational costs. Vision AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology, Big Data analysis, and ADAS are the future of rail. The industry cannot afford to be left behind!
