How Siemens Is Using Big Data And IoT To Build The Internet Of Trains
Trains that are never late? To someone like me living in the UK, it may sound impossibly utopian. But Siemens say that thanks to Big Data and analytics it could soon be a reality.
Train operators have responsibility for getting millions of people to where they want to be every day. When journeys are delayed it causes not only disruption to people’s schedules, but operators often face large financial penalties.
Siemens AG is one of the world’s largest providers of railway infrastructure, serving rail operators in over 60 countries. Through harnessing Big Data, sensors and predictive analytics they say they can now guarantee their customers close to 100% reliability.
