June 06: Upgrading rail operations and asset management with connectivity and novel technologies
Using drones to enhance data-driven asset managementAs a transportation specialist, SYSTRA is uniquely positioned with both the data analytics skills and the strong experience of maintenance engineering required in this growing area. More and more mature technologies such as The Internet of Things or Drones will simplify data collection. Once collected, the right data must be properly analysed and then acted upon relevantly to inform decision-making and achieve business objectives. Beyond this necessary structuration and management of the data, our conviction is that the challenge will be to select the right use cases that will real bring value to the transport operators, infrastructure owners, authorities and, in fine, to the service users.
