Success story

Class I railroad experiences improved rail safety by predicting bearing failures

For many railroads, overheated axle boxes and brakes are a major cause of derailments. Moving towards increased safety means that early detection through wayside monitoring equipment is critical.

Our customer is a Class I railroad in North America with a rail network of approximately 6,600 route miles, 13,000 freight cars, and 1,044 locomotives. They wanted to obtain a maintenance crew to fix a hot box detector before it could malfunction and stop trains running on the tracks. With massive data being generated and facing challenges interpreting the data to respond to the hotbox detectors in time, they partnered with CloudMoyo.

In this case study, you’ll find out how CloudMoyo enabled the railroad to ingest large volumes of streaming data from hotbox detectors into an Azure Data Lake, set up a data warehouse for data validation, set up data governance processes, and create a future-proofing solution using the Azure Data Platform.

Some of the benefits the solution drove for the railroad include:

  1. Reduced frequency of manual inspections
  2. Greater reliability of the system to prevent unnecessary delays
  3. Unnecessary delays caused by false alarms
  4. Ensured increased safety
