Unique wireless sensors, cloud-native systems and flexible web-based interfaces, enable rapid deployment with no disruption to operations. Using machine learning, it automatically improves analysis through experience and anticipates asset performance. As a subscription service, EBI Sense brings simplicity and predictability of costs, and with the end-user in mind, intuitive interfaces and reports offer customers a simplified workflow process.

Developed by Bombardier’s Rail Control Solutions’ Services Team based in Sweden, EBI Sense adds a new dimension to the BOMBARDIER OPTIFLO suite of rail control service solutions. Bombardier has a long history of innovation in modern rail control, from pioneering the first computer-based interlockings and automated train control systems, to continuing to advance in the digital arena with technologies like EBI Sense today.
