Artificial Intelligence

4Tel is developing the future of rail technology. We are actively using specialist artificial intelligence and deep learning systems to optimise real-time decision making across rail networks.

An all-seeing AI for rail.

Using sensors from the driverless car industry, our team has developed ‘HORUS’, an artificial intelligent system to assist train drivers in detecting hazards in the rail corridor.

Rail corridors rarely change making it ideal to explore and develop real-time visual detection software. By capturing the corridor master sequence and then using on-board super-machine visual processing, the corridor information is cross checked with a detailed database enabling the system to detect if a trespasser or object is in a potentially dangerous position to the trains path. While the system won’t stop incidents from happening, it will minimise the impact from earlier response.
