OPTIFLO – a comprehensive portfolio of rail control service solutions tailored to address the challenges faced by railway infrastructure owners and operators.
Combining the experience Bombardier has gained throughout decades of modernizing and maintaining signalling systems with the possibilities enabled by digitalization and data analytics has enabled us to create a comprehensive suite of service modules.
We have a broad portfolio of conventional services together with the latest advances in digital technology, Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based systems, all designed to provide our customers the very best in efficiency, reliability and availability.
Railway operators continuously need to meet requirements for increased availability and reliability within their networks, as well as extending the lifecycle of their assets. To support these aspirations, we have developed the EBI Sense digital service for predictive maintenance.
Powered by the latest technologies, advanced data analysis and the ingenuity of the most talented professionals in our industry, the new service continuously measures, collects and analyzes operational data from railway assets. This is turned into valuable performance insights and presented on an intuitive user interface, allowing operators to target and optimize their maintenance activities.
Over time the service automatically improves, utilizing information and feedback to accurately predict and prevent failures before they happen, enabling an enhanced level of availability and reliability of the railway network.
EBI Sense incorporates a powerful combination of purpose-designed sensors, Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cloud technologies that add new capabilities for the analysis of railway asset performance data.
The ingenious service design enables continuous measurements to be taken from railway assets, wirelessly sending the raw data to the smart cloud where it is labelled and stored.
Combining advanced analytics and long-term trend analysis, EBI Sense turns data into valuable performance insights. Its algorithms search for deviations and patterns to detect operational anomalies. This analysis allows infrastructure managers to address identified issues proactively and presents a unique opportunity to track historic data to better understand changes in performance over time.
EBI Sense is designed around the optimum user experience. An intuitive user interface enables navigation though contemporary menus and screen layouts, designed for efficiency and ease of use. Visualization of asset performance and analysis is simplified, augmenting identification and resolution of issues.
Use of machine learning algorithms continuously improves the performance predictions provided by the service. Ongoing analysis of the data and field experience increases the accuracy of the algorithms, ensuring the ability of the service to predict and prevent faults.
