Railroad Asset Identification using Computer Vision
Railroad Asset Identification using Computer Vision
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.

Unidirectional Security Gateway DIN Rail
Unidirectional Security Gateway DIN Rail
In the face of increased and complex cyberattacks, more and more industrial and critical infrastructure sites are turning to unidirectional gateway technology to prevent remote cyberattacks from entering their control systems. However, many physical environments require a smaller form factor than the rack-mounted Unidirectional Security Gateway. To meet this need, we developed the compact Unidirectional Security Gateway DIN Rail.The DIN Rail version of Waterfall’s market-leading Unidirectional Security Gateway enables customers throughout all sectors to deploy unidirectional gateway technologies in any of their network locations that require a compact form factor. Without compromise, the Unidirectional Gateway DIN Rail maintains the highest level of cyber security available for protecting industrial control systems (ICS) and critical infrastructure facilities from remote online attacks.Same benefits, smaller packageThe Waterfall DIN Rail offers the same high throughput, connectivity and functionality as our full-body, rack-mounted version. The availability of a smaller form factor enables electrical, oil and gas, manufacturing and other industries to easily deploy the gold standard of cyber protection for space-constrained sites. In addition, industrial enterprises connecting to cloud platforms or employing many small sites will benefit from using Waterfall’s Unidirectional CloudConnect® in this compact form factor. With no loss of performance or ease of use, industrial cybersecurity has never been so comfortable and secure.Robust hardware with a twistThe Waterfall DIN Rail is based on combined TX and RX Modules. The software runs from two computers, dedicated or shared, one on each side of the gateway. All of Waterfall’s multitude of software connectors, in addition to its advanced features and functionalities, are supported.Highlighted features:- Same ultimate level of cybersecurity as our market-leading- Unidirectional Security Gateway- Compact, vertical DIN Rail mounted- Same throughput and software connectivity as the Unidirectional- Security Gateway- Designed for specific environmental requirements (e.g. substations)

Suzhou New District
Suzhou New District
It was one of the first industry parks opened to attract foreign investors from APEC countries. It served as an export base for technology-related services and products in China. In 2003, the district's total output value is 25.1 billion yuan. Industrial sales of 70.06 billion yuan, The local budget revenue was 1.53 billion yuan and export of 8.76 billion USD.[3] Up to the end of 2003, the district has attracted a total of over 800 foreign projects including 40 multinational corporations. Foreign investment has reached over 6 billion USD while the actually utilized investment reached 3.4 billion USD. The district attracts many different types of industries, including consumer electronics, information technology, precision instruments, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals. The Suzhou New District was the first APEC hi-tech development zone to be approved by the Foreign Ministry and Science and Technology Ministry and receive ISO 14000 certification.
Huzhou Economic and Technological Development Zone
Huzhou Economic and Technological Development Zone
HETDZ is fully equipped with completed infrastructure, such as telecommunication bureau, postal center, transit station combined by rail, and road and river transportation with an annual handling capacity of 1,100,000 ton. Huzhou is one of the origins of the modern national industry, and is also one of the earliest open cities following the opening-up policy. Huzhou thus appears to be more accustom to the market economic system. The governmental department works efficiently, and has strong consciousness of law. The city's education is on the top level in mainland China. Over 83% staff has finished high school education or mid-professional education. Besides, being close to Shanghai, Hangzhou and Nanjing, where locates enormous outstanding universities like Zhejiang University, Tongji University, Fudan University, Shanghai Community University and Nanjing University, Huzhou is strongly supported by professional experts, and absorbs sophisticated technology from them.

Shipment Tracking
Shipment Tracking
Utilizing IoT and digital supply chain management platforms have moved far beyond looking at only ocean carrier milestones. With this new level of end-to-end shipment visibility, shippers can instantly access transit times from every carrier along the route to create efficiencies and increase communication within their organizations – ultimately providing the highest level of customer satisfaction.Digitized data comes in many formats, including feeds from the Internet of Things (IoT). Global supply chains are ideal candidates for IoT applications because there are so many moving parts and multiple parties. IoT applications capture and share immense amounts of data that equip logistics managers with a level of visibility not previously achievable. Specifically, for shippers and the carriers moving their products, advances in cellular devices and networks have made it possible for less-than-truckload (LTL) and other over-the-road truckers to provide tracking data.These connected tracking devices feed into transportation management and supply chain platforms to provide critical information at the pallet and package level. When connected with the ocean, air, and rail shipment tracking, these last mile data systems give shippers a competitive edge. To alleviate the pressure on your supply chain, the most important component is a technology platform with one big view of everything across your multimodal transportation ecosystem.
