    Applying machine learning to mitigate radio disturbances in digital rail systems

    Digital transformation plays a key role in enhancing resilience in railway mobility. In particular, reliable train-to-ground radio communication is one of the most important factors in ensuring resilient railway operations. As an open environment, radio can be subject to variations, external interference and degradations which may cause severe disruptions to traffic. The speech discusses how machine learning-based solutions developed in Alstom can improve train operations by improving resilience against radio issues. Thanks to detection, diagnostics and prognostics algorithms, timely alerts are generated and issue resolution is enabled before any service disruption. From design phase to operation and maintenance, the solution increases the efficiency of train-to-ground radio tuning and troubleshooting and transforms the unreliable radio environment into a controlled communication link.
