Indian Railways to get a modern touch as it is including IoT, Big Data, and AI

The Indian government is all set to modernize the railways, as it is bringing in the future technology interactions within railways that include internet of things (IoT), big data, and artificial intelligence. The RailTel chairman and managing director Puneet Chawla at an industry summit in Bhubaneswar announced that the Indian Railways will heavily rely on technology as it is mainly focusing on the employee as well as passengers’ satisfaction.

This technology will ensure that train operations such as safety, punctuality, and line capacity are under control. Chawla also stated that RailTel is now the fifth-largest telecom infrastructure provider in the country as it provides video walls, WiFi, CCTVs, e-office, and computer-based signaling that are used in railway operations. He said that the future of technology lies in these platforms which will not only modernize the Indian railways but also will ensure the safety of passengers.

Indian railway has been in revamping mode for many years. Railway Minister PiyushGoyal said that the government plans to bring in WiFi connections. He also expressed that CCTVs are being installed in maximum numbers in all the stations. With AI, IoT, and big data will rewrite the world economic order with aggregators that are displacing conventional business.
