Konux uses AI, IoT for railway infra optimization
Konux, a Munch-based deep tech AI scale-up, has been building out a SaaS business powered by proprietary sensing hardware and AI that drives a predictive maintenance software-as-a-service(SaaS) play which is upgrading railway infrastructure as reported by Techcrunch.
Its mission is to drive digitization and transformative change atop rail travel, using AI plus IoT to add intelligence to fixed rails by capturing real-time data on what’s happening on and to the railway network.
The company is using deep tech methods and stress-tested connected hardware to gain visibility into the loads and forces railway lines are accommodating day in, and day out; measuring vibration through the tracks to pick up anomalies that may signify failures incoming, then presenting its probabilistic analysis of what’s going to happen to the infrastructure over the next few months.
Its AI-driven predictions were developed to a 90% accuracy standard, per Bonnifield.
