Over the past decade, railroads have implemented new technologies to help with three primary areas of the business — understanding the location of assets, the health of assets, and the condition status of assets.

With access to more data than ever before, railroads are creating data-driven decisions that optimize the service process for their customers by increasing transparency and reporting while decreasing maintenance downtime. To be successful, railroads will need a combination of data analytics and AI to make smart business decisions. Ones that deploy capital wisely and extend track life faster. Join us for a digital rail summit where we dive into the current ways railroads are using the internet of things to improve the customer experience and where we look at future uses and trends of IoT.
