Although air and road transport is well developed today, the railway is still an extremely stable means of transportation. Whether carrying goods or passengers, it plays an important commercial role on fixed routes and is already part of the infrastructure of smart cities.
Due to its reliability and cost-effectiveness, the investment of construction and upgrade never stop. In addition to the pursuit of capacity and speed improvement, a significant trend is to improve passenger experience and driving safety. In-vehicle devices can provide real-time status display, cabin&train status monitoring, and track intrusion detection. With the powerful performance of AI, these advanced applications can also be implemented more efficiently
Driving assistance or autonomous driving is either an inevitable trend, both of which require high-performance computers to help AI calculations.
Pantograph is the current source of power for rail transportation, and it needs to be constantly monitored to see if it is in normal condition by AI judgment.
To determine the passengers in the cars are evenly distributed, AI calculation can effectively help the driver to make suggestions for the movement of passengers when the compartment is crowded
Obstacles the track cause accidents, AI image analysis can detect the danger early and issue a warning immediately to avoid potential risks.
Cabin monitoring is a necessary approach to ensure the safety of passengers. Analyzing passenger behavior and unidentified leftovers through AI creates a more reassuring carrier service.
Digital signage inside the train help passengers to understand the traffic conditions and increase the additional value of rail transit through commercial advertising.
"The purpose of RC300-CS is to be an in-vehicle system with comprehensive functions," said Crystal, Director of System Products at DFI.
"It will be used for real-time information analysis regarding the vehicle through various sensors and cameras, and then generates useful information for peripheral systems, drivers or passengers, all the designs are meant to meet the demands required for a rail-based in-vehicle system, with high integration of various configurations."
