Enhancing Railway Safety with Kodifly's Spatial Intelligence Solutions
September 21, 2023
Railways are the lifeline of transportation, moving millions of passengers and tons of goods every day. With this tremendous responsibility, ensuring the safety of railway infrastructures and operations is of utmost importance. As we observe Railway Safety Awareness Week, we would like to share how Kodifly’s solutions help reshape the monitoring and maintenance of the railway infrastructure.
💥 Challenges Faced by Railways
While maintaining a safe and highly efficient network, the railway industry attempts to overcome the following challenges, such as:
- 🖥️ Rail Infrastructure Monitoring: Railways span vast distances with complex infrastructure, making it difficult to monitor the condition of tracks, bridges, overhead lines and other assets. Identifying issues like fallen trees along the tracks, damaged tracks, or faulty signaling systems is crucial for maintaining a safe environment for trains and passengers.
- 🔮 Predictive Maintenance: Timely and efficient maintenance of rail assets is essential to prevent accidents and ensure unhindered operations. Predicting maintenance time of specific assets ahead of time enables better operational planning, helps to avoid unexpected (and expensive!) failures and reduces downtime, resulting in cost savings and improved reliability.
- 🌳 Anomaly Detection: Detecting anomalies in real-time is vital to avoiding potential accidents and ensuring prompt response in critical situations. Trespassers on tracks, foreign objects which can potentially intrude the train’s Kinematic Envelope, or any other unusual activities must be detected promptly to avert dangerous incidents.
⛑️Solving the Challenges with Kodifly:
Kodifly's spatial intelligence solutions address the challenges faced by the railway industry, revolutionizing railway safety through innovative technology. Here's how Kodifly is making railways safer:
- 📷 Real-Time Infrastructure Scanning: Kodifly's railway infrastructure monitoring system, utilizing LiDAR, Video and 3D PointCloud technologies, provides railway authorities with reliable real-time warnings about obstructions in front of the train and potential intrusion risks. This enables swift action in removing fallen trees, ensuring tracks remain clear, and minimizing the chances of accidents and disruptions.
- 📊 Digital Twin Analytics: Kodifly employs Digital Twin models, creating accurate virtual replicas of rail assets, to deliver actionable insights for predictive maintenance. By continually analyzing 3D model data, segmenting and detecting objects (tracks, poles, cones, overhead lines, trees, etc) broken or damaged railway assets can be identified. Having insights on the state of infrastructure allows maintenance scheduling, optimizing maintenance costs, and ensuring a smoother and safer operation.
- 🌦️ Reliable operation in any weather, 24/7: Due to the nature of LiDAR sensor, infrastructure scanning can be conducted in any weather, be it rain, fog or strong wind and any time of the day. Knowing that most maintenance works have to be conducted at night during non-working hours of passenger trains, Kodifly provides reliable tools to maintenance staff to inspect, pinpoint, and resolve any critical issues.
Railway Safety Awareness Week serves as a reminder to prioritize safety and continuously strive for improvements. By leveraging Kodifly's advanced technologies such as real-time infrastructure monitoring, predictive maintenance through Digital Twin models, and computer vision-based anomaly detection, railways can proactively mitigate risks and enhance the safety of their operations. Let us unite in creating a safer future for all passengers, making railway travel an even more secure and enjoyable experience.

Use of AIoT & LiDAR in the marine industry
In this article, we explore innovative approaches to use AI, IoT, and LiDAR-based systems in the marine industry, particularly in the Shipping Operations, Repair and Maintenance, and Safety. When it comes to the adoption of innovative technology, the maritime industry has long been an embodiment of the phrase “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”. However, both the unexpected global logistics crisis that followed the COVID pandemic and the improvement, on both cost and performance, that innovative technology has had on modern service processes in other industries have shown that the maritime industry needs innovation, fast.
