Obstacle detection and classification

When an obstacle is detected, the system sends visual and acoustic alerts in real-time to both the driver and the command-and-control center. Tailormade to meet every customer’s specific needs, the systems are available for Main Lines and Shunting Yards, as well as Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) operating in urban environments. In addition, Rail Vision offers a range of optional complementary features based on collected and analyzed data: Image-based Navigation, GIS Mapping and Predictive Maintenance. 

Together with our partner Knorr-Bremse, a world-leading manufacturer of braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles, Rail Vision is able to provide you local services shortening our response time. 

Mission Statement

To become the global key player of obstacle detection and predictive maintenance in the railway industry, increase safety and operational punctuality, while decreasing downtime and infrastructure expenditure.
