All Aboard for Safety

As Americans continue to flock to urban areas, rail is expected to play an increasingly important role. “Smart city” infrastructure and emerging rail safety innovations will ensure that tomorrow’s railways are safer, more efficient and more reliable.


what’s inside

Rail & the Smart City

Rail is already one of the safest ways to travel. New technologies offer opportunities to further reduce accident rates and significantly improve the efficiency of rail systems.

Smart Rail Technologies

Smart rail technologies can help reduce the risk of incidents. They also provide valuable data that can help companies better utilize train assets and move more goods or people over the same infrastructure.

Rail Safety Opportunities

Rail has an excellent safety record overall, but there is much room for improvement. Highly publicized rail accidents have put rail safety in the spotlight and reduced consumer confidence.

Future of Smart Railways

The horizon for smart railways requires thinking beyond the tracks. Increased ridership means more opportunities for collisions or derailments and more intersections of cars, pedestrians and trains.
