Russian Railways finding solutions to create train AI safety systems

Russian Railways has announced an open invitation for innovative solutions to create a new generation of on-board locomotive security systems using computer technologies and artificial intelligence.

The Company pays special attention to the safety of trains and works constantly to create new security devices to be fitted to new and existing rolling stock. At the same time, Russian Railways is interested in the further development of these systems and the introduction of fundamentally new devices, including technologies using artificial intelligence, in order not only to improve the level of traffic safety, but also to reduce the burden on the locomotive teams.

Russian Railways is accepting applications between 1 June and 31 July 2020 through the specialised “Requests” section of the automated system "Unified Window of Innovation"of the Company’s Internet portal.

An open invitation is a procedure for finding innovative proposals to solve tasks that Russian Railways considersurgent (requests for innovations) with the possibility of their trial operation and/or purchase.

During 2020, Russian Railways plans at least 33 open invitations covering various operational areas at the Company’s divisions. Detailed information on the schedule, topics, requirements and deadlines planned for open invitations at Russian Railways in 2020 can be found through the automated system “Unified Window of Innovation” on the corporate Internet portal of Russian Railways.
