Nokia is implementing AI video analytics to improve railroad crossing safety

Nokia Announced that it will introduce an AI video analysis solution to improve railroad crossing safety.

solution, Scene analysis, Will be deployed first Baselland Transport AG (BLT) Münchenstein, Switzerland.

Michael Theiler, Head of Maintenance Electrical Systems at BLT, said:

“Railroad crossings are notorious for the difficulty of ensuring the safety of passengers, pedestrians, train drivers and drivers.

This deployment represents a promising step in working with Nokia to use analytics as another layer of protection in dangerous areas.

Nokia Scene Analytics acts as an intelligent set of “eyes” to provide important information in real time to prevent or mitigate the impact of an incident. “

Scene Analytics combines machine learning with computer vision capabilities to enable real-time analysis of video feeds. The solution can be trained with CCTV data to learn “normal” or unusual.

Karsten Oberle, Nokia’s head of railways, commented:

“As the first deployment of this kind in Europe, this project by Schweizer Electronics and BLT has been able to address many of the safety issues of railroad crossings at the top of the railroad operator’s priority list.

Today, Nokia Scene Analytics is our goal to be an important part of the transition towards the digitization of railways in the future.

By integrating machine learning into the railroad crossing system, safety processes can be continuously improved and improved in real time. This ensures that safety remains at the forefront for train drivers, workers and customers alike. “

Scene Analytics can be integrated with many standard cameras. Reduce the cost and time required to purchase and install new hardware across your rail network.

This solution also helps reduce costs while improving passenger rail services by minimizing downtime and delays.

In the report, the EU Identified (PDF) In 28 member countries at the time, about 250 people were killed and 300 were seriously injured in connection with the 2018 railroad crossing.

In 2018 alone, the estimated cost of a train wreck in the EU is:

  • Deaths – € 2.89 billion
  • Property damage, cost of delay, cost to the environment – ​​€ 393 million
  • Serious injury – € 379 million
  • Other costs – € 142 million

By introducing AI-powered video analytics at railroad crossings, operators can reduce costs and even save the lives of a few people.
