USA: The Israeli company says that in June, the pilot Shunting Yard samples have been installed for the infrastructure maintenance company Loram and an unnamed freight operator.

The system is designed for shunting locomotives and detects obstacles and switch positions within a range of 200 m in any weather or light conditions. It also controls zones with poor visibility when coupling a locomotive to a set of cars. The obstacles encountered by optical and infrared cameras are classified by the AI, which informs a driver or a remote operator.

Previously in April, Rail Vision said it received another $5 mln frame contract to install Shunting Yard from an unnamed American rail leasing company. In addition, May saw a notice of allowance for a US patent on the Shunting Yard and Main Line onboard computer vision products.
