The Sixth Sensor: How IoT smart sensors can address operational challenges introduced by rail automation
Our new White Paper looks at the increasing adoption of automation in railways, a movement that is being closely watched by many in the industry. Automatic Train Control (ATC) and other similar systems have been part of the rail industry for some time now. The rising trend towards automation is driven by technology advancements and backed by the notion that it can increase productivity and reliability.
However, with automation comes reduced direct human involvement and that in turn can create more abstract operational issues.
The White Paper – The Sixth Sensor: How IoT Smart Sensors Can Address Operational Challenges Introduced by Increasing Automation in Railways – highlights the advantages and disadvantages of automation in rail, with a focus on the effects of a diminishing human connection.
