Autonomous train: a new vision sense for trains using AI
Help energy optimization and improve train punctuality
RailBot - Eye is a new solution that provides trains with a new visual sense using Artificial Intelligence to navigate autonomously in an open-world environment. The first application for the new solution is autonomous navigation from train depot to station platform. Later, RailBot-Eye could be used in normal traffic, as the train will be able to distinguish between all types of obstacles and determine the level of risk in order to take the right decision. Thanks to Thales solutions, autonomous trains will help to drastically improve train punctuality and increase capacity by enabling the network to carry more trains. Autonomous trains will be an opportunity to keep very low-density lines open and use the existing network at maximum capacity when needed. The solution will also improve the environmental performance of the rail sector by optimising movements to improve energy consumption during operation.
