Israel to install AI safety warning system on passenger trains
Israel Railways will install an artificial intelligence
(AI)-based safety warning system on passenger trains, the
state-owned company said in a statement on Monday, Trend reports citing
The electro-optic systems, developed by the Israeli technology
company Rail Vision, can detect humans, vehicles, animals, and
vegetation near and on the track, with an extended visual range of
up to 2 km in most weather and light conditions, thus preventing
collisions and reducing downtime.
The system combines sensitive imaging sensors with AI and deep
learning technology to detect and classify obstacles, and then
generates real-time visual and acoustic alerts for both the driver
and the operator’s command-and-control center, according to the
The systems will be installed in the first phase on ten
locomotives for continuing experiments, development, and
improvement, the statement said.
