DMA and Siemens partner to boost rail infrastructure management

Italian company DMA has partnered with Siemens Mobility to develop solutions intended to optimise rail infrastructure management.

Italian company DMA has partnered with Siemens Mobility to develop solutions intended to optimise rail infrastructure management.

The collaboration will see the combination of DMA’s inspection solutions and TracksNet measurement data analysis tool with Siemens’ Railigent application suite into the track geometry dashboard.

It will allow the user to manage rail assets by using capabilities from the Internet of Things (IoT).

Powered by Siemens IoT operating system MindSphere, the Railigent application suite can integrate with various applications to allow the intelligent use of rail data.

DMA chief operating officer Markus Nottelmann said: “We’re very excited to partner with Siemens on this solution. We know it will bring real benefits to our customers in terms of reduced costs and improved safety.

“The efficiency of automated measurements combined with powerful data analysis also brings about quality improvements and higher network availability.”

DMA has designed its automated measurement system to conduct accurate critical inspections, reducing manual supervision of the track.

The implementation of TracksNet helps in increasing personnel safety, as well as enabling early identification of any issue or defects on the tracks.

Accordingly, it enables the rail operator to plan the maintenance and repair works after procuring complete information about the condition of the track network.

Siemens’ Railigent will obtain this data and assists in its interpretation by TracksNet through the simplified dashboard.

Both companies are scheduled to exhibit the Railigent Track Geometry Dashboard at the forthcoming InnoTrans 2018.

DMA focuses on providing rail infrastructure management, monitoring, and rolling stock measurement systems.
