By using remotely controlled shunts, monitoring systems, predictive algorithms and a secured cloud system, not only has the safety of track workers increased significantly, but assets are better controlled. This has resulted in fewer failures, higher availability of track and less unforseen maintenance. Other effects: lower costs and greenhouse gas reduction.
1. Review how to work safer
2. Learn how to use new technology to minimize (unnecessary) worker’s time in track, thus minimizing potential accidents/collisions
3. Understand how to optimally secure assets
4. Examine how to minimize the animosity between operations and maintenance and improve track worker and passenger safety
