Presentation title:
Digital Train – What lies ahead?

Miniaturization of computing hardware is enabling distributed computing discarding parts of the proven cloud computing model. Its adoption is higher in rail industry compared to some other industries because of the need for managing its movable and stationary assets that generate huge data across the network.

This is not a small change. A whole new picture is emerging by moving these pieces of the IT infrastructure puzzle. What lies ahead for digital rail is beyond the connectivity and monitoring:

  • Understanding transportation systems like never before
  • Predicting outcomes – failures, part replacements, maintenance plans, financial implications and many more.
    Automating business decision making
  • This session shows leading ideas, practical methodologies and case studies explaining what lies ahead for Digitalisation in Railways with the merging edge, fog and cloud computing.
