Our current consulting and research includes:

  • Big Data analytics in Railway Safety
    Neural Networks to predict track derailment forces
  • Fault detection of points using accelerometer data
  • Intelligent and autonomous Vision systems for Assett Management using forward facing CCTV
  • Platform Train Interface control using intelligent and autonomous Vision systems and platform visual projections.

We are currently working with clients:

  • Analysing geometrical tract data to predict derailment potential using open source deep learning algorithms
  • Assessing accelerometer information from points machines to build an algorithm that can predict when the points machine is beginning to deteriorate
  • Intelligent and autonomous vision systems for Asset Management using forward facing CCTV
  • Platform Train Interface control using intelligent and autonomous Vision systems and platform visual projections.
