Automated Train Inspection  – Analyze

PSI Technics' automated train inspection system performs a "health check" on your train.

When it comes to rolling stock maintenance, our Analytics diagnostic software enables you to leverage unparalleled optimization potential.

Today, the volume of collected and digitally archived data increases exponentially. However, large amounts of valuable data are simply archived and their true potential remains unused.

"Big Data" refers to data records that are too big or complex to manage with traditional data-processing methods. While big data management represents a major challenge, it also harbors enormous process optimization potential.

Our intelligent, self-learning Analytics software module analyzes and utilizes large volumes of recorded data to accelerate and streamline railway maintenance.


This is how the automated measurement and analysis process works:

Images of the train are recorded while the train passes the system. After the images have been analyzed, the inspection reports are created automatically and can be viewed directly via an intuitive user interface. The analysis results are repeatable, reliable and immediately available.

Software features include:
  1. Display of the analysis results
  2. Individual image display
  3. Adding inspection notes to the analysis results
  4. Reporting feature
  5. Documentation of results
  6. The recorded findings are used as a basis for subsequent maintenance optimization.

The recorded data is used for:

The software uses templates to learn the characteristics of each train type (also see artificial intelligence) and the analysis is performed using pre-defined templates. The diagnostic software uses taught-in templates to automatically check predefined test components for defects or damages. This technology can be used to inspect and analyze different types of trains as well as train components of any kind.


Machine Learning: By combining the collected data with additional parameters, such as maintenance- or train-related data, train-specific analysis templates can be created to enhance the teach-in routines of the Analytics software module.


The more data is collected, the better the Analytics module "learns" to interpret potential correlations. It intelligently and automatically combines recorded data to generate additional information for every train or component, saving valuable time and ensuring precise rolling stock maintenance planning.

From selecting serviceable components to ordering and stocking required spare parts: The targeted data analysis features enable train operators to minimize lead times, service times and costs.


Estimated wearing strip failure

of single or critical components (predictive)

The Analytics software continuously analyzes newly recorded data, creating a detailed history for each component that can be used to efficiently monitor component wear.

By entering additional information, such as the number of miles or kilometers traveled since the previous analysis, progressive component wear can be predicted and the remaining component lifetime can be forecast in terms of miles or kilometers. Wear parts, such as wearing strips, can be more accurately monitored and replaced in a timely manner to protect against outages at an early stage.

Identification of wrong, missing or incorrectly installed components


The Analytics module enables maintenance crews to log, analyze and monitor new components and installation methods.

Sample application: Modifications to the roof structure of every single train can be recorded and individual train profiles can be updated to include newly installed parts, providing a detailed overview of the use of new components within the entire fleet.

This allows for a direct comparison and quality assessments of new and existing components or installation methods. In addition, newly added components can be checked for proper installation and any installed parts that are unsuitable for a particular train model can easily be identified and replaced.
