Rail supplier news from Alstom and Rail Vision (April 12)


Alstom, AtkinsRealis and Polytechnique Montreal are developing a training program for sustainable rail mobility. The partners intend to explore ways to develop specialized training courses in the field of railway and public transit engineering that directly address mobility and decarbonization issues, according to a news release. The agreement also provides for the hiring of interns and recent graduates from Polytechnique Montreal, potential knowledge sharing through rail industry conferences and direct support for student projects.

Rail Vision Ltd. has received an initial purchase order of $1 million as part of a contract valued at up to $5 million with a leading U.S.-based rail and leasing services company. The order is for the purchase of Rail Vision’s artificial intelligence-based ShuntingYard products, which are expected to be installed during the third quarter. The ShuntingYard product enables railway operators to streamline and enhance the safety of their industrial switching operations. Combining advanced vision sensors with artificial intelligence and deep learning technologies, the system is designed to automatically detect and classify objects within a range of up to 219 yards in diverse weather and light conditions.
