Syslogic: railway computer for predictive maintenance

Nowadays, predictive maintenance is an important success factor for railway operators. It uses diagnostic data so that maintenance cycles can be planned at an early stage. Downtimes and maintenance costs are reduced. Accordingly, all major railway vehicle manufacturers offer their own predictive maintenance systems. As a specialist for embedded systems that are suitable for railways, Syslogic’s railway computers provide the ideal hardware basis for predictive maintenance.

Railway computers by Syslogic provide the perfect hardware foundation for efficient use of railway vehicles. Syslogic supplies various large railway vehicle manufacturers with railway computers. Among others, Stadler Rail uses Syslogic equipment for its RDS (Rail Data Services) remote analysis system. This system records all diagnostic and operating data of the railway vehicles and stores them in a fleet database. Maintenance intervals can thus be planned precisely. Unplanned downtimes and maintenance times are avoided. Railway operators benefit from high efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Passengers in turn benefit from reliable railway operations.

The latest railway computer from Syslogic is based on a Jetson-TX2 module by Nvidia. It provides ideal conditions for GPU-accelerated processing of process data and paves the way for integration of deep learning functions. This opens up new possibilities for predictive maintenance as well as cognitive image recognition (computer vision). This in turn makes semi-automated and highly automated driving possible. This is equally intriguing for railway operators and railway vehicle manufacturers, as it not only improves cost-effectiveness, but also safety on railways.

All railway computers from Syslogic are designed to meet the high demands of railway operations. They are passively cooled and feature a robust housing with screw-on M12 connectors. This makes them resistant to shock and vibration. They are also suitable for the wider temperature range from –40 to +70 °C. These railway computers also meet railway standards EN50155, Class OT 4, and EN45545 (fire protection).

In addition to high performance and robustness, Syslogic relies on simple commissioning of its railway computers. The devices are delivered with a preinstalled operating system. A complete developer environment (JetPack) including CUDA libraries and Deep Learning Framework is also installed on the AI Railway Computer.
