Nomad’s solutions currently inform and entertain four million passengers a day worldwide.
Intelligent fleet management for financial and energy savings
Nomad provides rail operators with real-time, end-to-end solutions to gather, analyse and interpret data from numerous on-board systems and isolated components.
The company provides remote connectivity to previously offline digital and analogue legacy systems, as well as knowledge and tools to extract and interpret critical operational data.
This enables operators to perform real-time analysis on-board, receive automatic alerts of impending equipment failures, and feed the relevant information in real-time to operation departments and maintenance depots.
Using Nomad’s powerful onshore tool, historical diagnostic data is available for analysis at any time to support improved decision making.
Intelligent fleet management is delivered by Nomad Tech, an innovative technical collaboration with EMEF, the Portuguese Railways company for rolling stock maintenance.
