The IoT is redefining the railway industry with significant benefits. As Railways begin to recognise that the rail sector is no exception when it comes to the potential value-enhancing opportunities made possible through the use of IoT technologies, industry stakeholders are exploring digitalisation as a mechanism to create entirely new and optimised railway maintenance systems with predictive qualities. The global predictive maintenance market, including IoTbased remote monitoring of trains and track is still developing, and shows an expected annual growth rate of 21% over the next three years.

As the IoT and digital technologies become more pervasive, rail infrastructure managers and operators are able to harness smart data to improve network availability, prolong asset lifetime, increase capacity and reduce maintenance downtime and costs. Although Railways are optimising data gleaned from the IoT, one of their biggest challenges is staying up to date with the latest innovativetechnologies that are available in order to continue to benefit from these continuing advances.

Perhaps some of the greatest opportunities for the rail sector exist in the logistics space. The impact of IoT on the logistics sector already indicates the opportunities for huge improvements to end to end visibility, benefitting the end user. The way in which we transport passengers and goods by rail is becoming unrecognisable. With the industry taking advantage of the very best Industrial IoT, and the most progressive Big Data analytics solutions, the worlds of physical and digital can finally come together, making the industry’s common objective of modal shift from road to rail become an achievable reality. Now is the time for the whole of the rail sector not just to keep up with, but to overtake other transport providers by fully signing up to the digital world.
