EN50155 Compliant Monitors help Realise the Future of Transportation
Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are technologies increasingly being adopted within the railway industry. In this article we explain how approved EN50155 compliant monitors can be simply and cost-effectively integrated into system design to enhance rail travel.
While train operation is almost semi-automatic, the human element in the form of a driver is still needed to oversee safe and reliable operation. Drivers are isolated in their cabs, so AI at the edge (of the network) can detect any incidents, like an acute medical condition. Onboard surveillance can monitor activity, for example if the driver falls to the ground or stares in one direction for more than five seconds, an alarm will be activated to alert the control centre who may decide to initiate emergency procedures. Outside of the driver’s cab, the same surveillance system can monitor passenger numbers and behaviour and alert the driver or a central control.
Networked cameras and AI software can detect when passengers are seated or alighting from the train to provide real-time status data for accurate updates of capacity. Displays in each carriage can depict which have free seats so passengers can easily move along the train to find a seat. The IoT means that the occupancy status can also be displayed on passengers’ phones for active updates.
