This customer maintains a railroad network consisting of thousands of miles of track across North America. They are regulated by a primary federal agency for the safe operation and maintenance of their network. One of the many requirements is the consistent posting of signage at various locations of their tracks.

The customer began capturing video of their rail network a number of years ago and updates it on a continual basis. The challenge is the ability to watch the video and determine if specific signage is in place and if it is in serviceable condition.

The solution that was implemented was the application of computer vision to "view" all of the thousands of miles of track and identify specific signage.

NLP Logix adapted its computer vision infrastructure, to be able to train a machine learning algorithm to identify the specific signage along the rail network. The solution was developed and tested within 60-days and proved to be very accurate and much faster than a human viewing the videos.
