Railway Team Goes the Distance

Sep 2015 For the first time, the railway team has participated in Rail Business Asia to seek new business opportunities in Malaysia. The three-day trade event is held annually at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Leveraging a deep relationship with one of its technology partners, the Railway Team showcased their track inspection system developed by bvSys, a Germany-based company. When installed on passenger trains or engineering vehicles, this system seamlessly detects location-based abnormalities on the tracks, such as rail cracks and missing clips.

During the course of the event, the Railway Team welcomed many trade visitors to its booth, including major railway players in Malaysia like Prasarana, MRT Corp and Siemens. Academics specialising in transportation from local universities specialising in transportation also spent time with the team, who presented technology updates such as how track inspection technology can make tracks safer by boosting the maintenance capabilities of railway operators.
