Bosch is making freight cars intelligent and connecting them to the internet. The technology supplier has developed a new asset intelligence system for rail freight transportation. The hardware attached to the railcars as part of the system is from Bosch large-scale automotive series production. Sensors supply data such as the precise position of a railcar, or the temperature in the storage area. This data is transferred to a server and evaluated. “With our system, a freight train becomes a digital and intelligent mode of transportation. In this way, we help trains get to their destinations faster and more efficiently, and we also cut transportation costs,” says Bernhard Bihr, president of Bosch Engineering Group.
