Case Study: Streamlining shunting yard operations through automation and deep learning
Shunting yard operations can be improved by deploying automated solutions. Here, Rail Vision provides details on its tailored shunting yard solution for SBB Cargo’s automation needs.
With the next ‘Industrial Revolution’ knocking on the door bringing along the overdue and inexorable modernisation of the railway industry, operators worldwide have acknowledged the necessity to face the many foreseen challenges head on. Shunting yard operations in particular are no exception and will undoubtedly be affected by three main challenges:
- Manpower shortages
- Safer work environments
- A growing need for automation.
To cope with these challenges and ultimately improve driver safety while at the same time reducing costs, cargo operators – especially in shunting yard operations, which requires a lot of manual work – are turning their attention towards process automation.
This Case Study by Rail Vision explores how automation is no longer just a buzzword but that is has become a necessity – especially in shunting yard operations – and highlights how Rail Vision have helped SBB Cargo AG deploy an automated assisted shunting process.
