Introducing the latest ScaleOut Software video release: Preventing Train Derailments with Real-Time Digital Twins. Modern society relies on complex transportation networks to keep things moving smoothly, but when issues arise, the consequences can be substantial. In 2022 alone, over 1,100 train derailments in the US led to damages exceeding $100 million. Costs from the East Palestine, Ohio train derailment in February 2023 reached a staggering $803 million.
Many costly train derailments could potentially be prevented using a combination of existing infrastructure and new real-time digital twin technology. In this video, you’ll learn how real-time digital twins can revolutionize accident prevention for railroads by monitoring live data and taking action before derailments occur. See how digital twins can analyze data from existing trackside detectors simultaneously and determine when wheel bearings are likely to fail. Watch a simulation that illustrates how ScaleOut’s digital twins can predict problems and intervene to prevent accidents.
