CAPACITY MEETS AI

Railway is the hidden sustainability champion in transportation. But with demand predicted to double by 2050, radical steps are needed to ensure the resilience and competitiveness of the system on which millions rely. AI can unlock sources of operational capacity and efficiency previously unimaginable, fueling a true railway revolution.

The more we digitize, the more we can prevent defects, if possible before they even appear, in order to do less corrective work and therefore save money.

The holistic switch

Predictive maintenance for S&C

KONUX Switch uses IIoT devices and artificial intelligence to improve network availability, extend asset lifetime and reduce costs. It continuously monitors and analyzes the health of signalling and track components, and provides actionable recommendations. It ultimately allows for better maintenance planning by helping infrastructure managers anticipate failures before they happen and know the optimal time and type of maintenance needed.

Winter '24 Update

Factoring in frost for reliable insights even in unreliable weather

Up to 50% of trackbed health alerts can be unreliable in winter, making it difficult for infrastructure Managers to identify valuable alerts amongst the already long list of detected events. This leads to wasting resources and time, and unnecessary safety risk. Our Winter ’24 Product Update introduces how our solution detects and comprehends frost-related effects, empowering infrastructure managers to focus on tackling pressing winter-related challenges that truly impact operations and safety.

Fall '23 Update

Uncovering the Once Undetectable with Point Machine Health

Punctual trains depend on the reliable operation of point machines. Unfortunately point machine failures continue to be rather frequent and cause about 60% of S&C-related delays. KONUX Switch is now combining track and signalling insights to enable point machine health monitoring, making it possible to reduce switch failures by 50%. By providing timely insights into when, where, and why an action is needed, it enables users to ultimately avoid repeating failures, reduce asset lifecycle costs and increase network reliability.

Designing the User Journey for Scalability

To deliver an even better user experience and actionable insights, we have taken a step back to redesign the user journey across the entire lifecycle. Our user-centric design ensures effortless access to the right information, at the right time, with the right level of detail – delivering insights in the most actionable way possible. By enabling data-driven decision making, our customers can reduce costly and disruptive delays and realize smoother, more efficient rail operations.

Spring '23 Update

Introducing Smart Alerts: Act on what matters, when it matters

Predictive maintenance has been one of the most effective maintenance approaches for railway infrastructure companies. While most solutions rely on simple alerts or static thresholds which can be misleading and result in many false alarms, we are applying smart algorithms as part of our Predictive Maintenance strategy to deliver meaningful insights to our customers by ensuring that they only receive alerts that matter and that can be acted upon with trust. This enables our customers to avoid unnecessary inspections, reduced downtime and costs and eventually increase operational capacity.

Winter '23 Release

Network usage insights to optimise inspections and resources

Planned and actual traffic can differ by as much as 40%, which can lead to over- and under-inspection, loss of operational capacity, blind spots for infrastructure degradation, and ultimately poor resource allocation. By leveraging AI and large scale data fusion, KONUX Network presents a model of actual daily traffic and its impact throughout the network. It helps regional managers, route directors, and planners optimise inspection planning, allocate resources where needed, and tackle capacity bottlenecks.

Summer '22 Release

Load insights to optimise switch maintenance and beyond

Rail switches and crossings globally account for 20% of delay minutes, 15% of rail operating expenditures and 10% of capital expenditures. To tackle these challenges with enhanced switch maintenance, KONUX has been continually innovating for continuous monitoring and forecasting of switch health. By complementing this capability with traffic usage insights, KONUX aims to push toward the vision of enabling holistic and delay-free switches at optimal costs.

White Paper

Accelerating Railway Digitalization — The Startup Sector’s Perspective

The global railway tech market is boosting with an expected annual value of €185bn (Statista). Startups, those who strive for agility and disruption, are recognizing this opportunity and embracing new technologies in the industry. Their voice, however, has been largely underrepresented within the general railway industry discourse, so we at KONUX set out on a mission to unite and amplify the voice of startups in rail. Based on the input of more than 30 companies from 14 countries, this white paper addresses the main challenges that startups in railway experience on their path to commercialization and growth, and what they believe must change in the industry for innovation and digitalization to accelerate.
