One Big Circle Partners With RailWorks to Market AIVR in the US
One Big Circle are thrilled to announce their partnership with North America’s leading rail maintenance and infrastructure solutions provider – RailWorks.
The partnership will supply One Big Circle’s Flagship product, AIVR (Automated Intelligent Video Review), to improve sustainability and on-track safety practices to protect the well-being of employees, contractors and passengers in North America, initially.
AIVR is a multi-award-winning technology system that provides an end-to-end solution to challenges in rail safety, maintenance and inspection, to a variety of stakeholders in the rail industry. AIVR Go, a Foward Facing Video system, captures and transmits HD video data of the track environment from on-board in-service trains and RRV’s, and automatically transmits the data via 4G/5G.
The AIVR Platform hosts all collected data and gives users access to a suite of digital tools that allow them to locate, measure, annotate and analyse images whilst also carrying out planning, sighting and reporting activities. The combined hardware and software of the AIVR system provide digital inspection capability that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to enable users from multiple rail disciplines to monitor rail environments remotely and safely.
Over the past four years of capturing video data in the UK, AIVR has captured over 95% of the rail network, through collaboration with key customers such as Network Rail and Transport for Wales. This is only the beginning for One Big Circle, who are thrilled to take on a new territory and its associated challenges.
Emily Kent, Co-Founder and Director of One Big Circle comments: “We are very excited to be partnering with RailWorks to bring AIVR to the North American market when there is an increasing demand for digital capability that advances remote asset and condition monitoring,”
“With their wealth of experience and knowledge, RailWorks is a fantastic partner, and we look forward to bringing our combined expertise together to create a big impact on safety, sustainability, and efficiency.”
Kevin Riddett, RailWorks Present and CEO said: “Our industry is continuously changing, especially when it comes to track inspection and maintenance programs. This partnership enables One Big Circle and RailWorks to provide an infrastructure solution to the market that exhibits a safe and efficient way to manage those programs.”
