What's Inside

Rail and 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.

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.

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.

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.
