"New technology is giving rail operators the opportunity to adapt and succeed in the shifting public transport landscape."
The current world population of 7.3 billion is anticipated to reach 8.5 billion by 2030 and 9.7 billion in 2050. By this stage, it is expected that more than two-thirds of humanity will be living in urban areas. The challenges that this will present, particularly in areas of fast growth such as Asia Pacific, the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, has major implications for rail and metro infrastructure. The rail industry must seriously contemplate the networks the passengers of tomorrow will need and start implementing solutions that will help rail asset owners more effectively own and operate this infrastructure today.
Emergent technologies such as Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and data analytics are among the tools that will allow operators to manage their rail networks in vastly more efficient ways.
To learn more, we have partnered with Trapeze Group to offer the SmartRail World community a new and exclusive free White Paper.
This newly-published piece of industry intelligence will shine a light on emerging solutions that make new and improved business practices such as strategic asset management and condition-based maintenance not only possible, but simpler to implement than you might think.
In this White Paper FUTURE RAIL: Emerging technologies to effectively manage growing rail networks from Trapeze, we highlight some of the key rail asset and maintenance management innovations for the 21st century.
White Paper sections include:
- The changing face of rail networks.
- Emergent technologies provide smart solutions.
- Smart software for smart decision-making.
- Industry-specific solutions drive efficiency.
Trapeze Group ( @trapezegroup ) works with public transport organisations and their communities to develop and deliver smarter, more effective public transport solutions.
