Siemens RailFusion to turn Big Data into Intelligence

Siemens launches RailFusion Big Data Asset Monitoring Software that monitors and analyses Data Points across an entire RailRoad Infra

Siemens, at Railway Interchange-2015 held at Minneapolis between October 4-7, introduced RailFusion, a software solution that monitors and analyzes data points across an entire railroad’s infrastructure including onboard and wayside assets like road crossings and end-of-train devices.

“On any given railroad there are trillions of data points being created by train systems and devices along a line, but this data is simply not being put into action,” said John Paljug, head of Siemens Rail Automation. “RailFusion brings all of these disparate data points together in one system and puts intelligence behind them, allowing railroads to make more informed, efficient decisions about how to operate and maintain their systems specific to their needs.”
