LoRaWAN™ is a basis for a cost-effective IoT solution for smart railway infrastructure. The IoT solution applied for the smart railway application makes it easy to grasp the condition information distributed over a wide railway area.
RAILWAY; These monitor the integrity of train wheels by sending more than 20 million temperature readings per day to the Union Pacific data center, which are then processed via data analytics. On average, three railcars per day are found to exceed safety thresholds and pulled out for inspection and servicing: a huge step forward in preventing bearing-related derailments, which can result in costly delays and up to $40 million in damages per incident.
Train operators have made a substantial investment in legacy equipment and systems that were not designed for connectivity
Specifically railway IoT Transformation lies in being able to connect previously unconnected systems, while protecting legacy investments
