Industry 4.0 standards characterised by intelligent systems and Internet-based industrial solutions, has been adopted by the transport sector, especially the railway sector.
The use of new technologies leads to improvements in the quality of services and business models, based on the analytical capabilities of big data and its potential to transform today’s platforms into a network of collaborative communities that move freight and passenger transport. The current trend toward automation and data sharing is aimed at adopting new and emergent technologies to achieve greater levels of efficacy and efficiency.
Several years ago CAF launched its “Digital Train” initiative, leading to the creation of the LeadMind platform, which provides a new generation of connected trains and more competitive services for operators and maintenance staff in the rail industry through data acquisition and advanced analytics. These services make it possible to visualize fleet status in real time and optimize maintenance plans based on the actual condition of the train assets. The result is maximum fleet availability, energy efficiency and safety.
Providing clients with the ability to access valuable information such as the data offered by CAF through the LeadMind platform requires granting high levels of privacy and security. Protecting industrial data from unauthorized access is one of CAF’s essential objectives. Complying with international information security standards like ISO / IEC 27001 is therefore crucial for LeadMind and its clients.
