Course content
Deutsche Bahn has wide track networks, large numbers of stations and other facilities as well as a huge amount of rolling stock. This makes it difficult to have our eyes on everything everywhere at the same time. Meanwhile, fixed maintenance or cleaning schedules are ineffective and not very flexible. Hence, the automatic analyzation of video and image streams allows us to schedule maintenance more flexibly, clean rolling stock when it needed or detect defects before they have a higher impact. As a consequence, we can provide a better, faster and more reliable service to our rail customers.

In this course you will benefit from example use cases from mobility companies and collect practical experience in dealing with the technology by setting up and training your own image analytics application. In this way, you will not only deepen your understanding of the technology, but also learn how to overcome hurdles when dealing with it.

  • Introduction to image and video analytics
  • Current state of technology and limitations 
  • Difference to other AI technologies and neural networks 
  • Use case examples from the Deutsche Bahn Group and other mobility companies
  • Setup and training of an image analytics service
