Here’s a quick summary of what might interest you in the sprawling but enriching maze of booths and sessions that is Vivatech!


*Can AI help us speed up the energy transition?*

➝ That’s a great question. The answer tend to be yes for us. The AI we are developing and integrating into our customers devices we designed is indeed moving in that direction!

Plus, There are many possible scenarios:

  • AI can optimize the distribution of electricity in smart grids, balancing supply and demand in real-time.
  • Machine learning algorithms can predict weather patterns and energy production from renewable sources like solar and wind.
  • AI can analyze and optimize energy usage in buildings and industrial processes, reducing overall consumption. Smart thermostats and energy management systems use AI to adjust heating, cooling, and lighting based on occupancy and usage patterns.
  • AI can predict when energy infrastructure components, such as turbines or solar panels, will need maintenance. This reduces downtime and prolongs the life of equipment, ensuring more consistent energy production.
  • AI can optimize charging schedules for electric vehicles to ensure they are charged using renewable energy sources whenever possible and to minimize strain on the grid during peak times.AI can manage energy storage systems, such as batteries, to ensure they are charged and discharged at optimal times. This maximizes the use of renewable energy and enhances grid stability.
  • AI can manage energy storage systems, such as batteries, to ensure they are charged and discharged at optimal times. This maximizes the use of renewable energy and enhances grid stability.

*Advancing Mobility Together: How Siemens & Tended partnership enhance safety and keeps trains moving*

It obviously resonates with us, because we’re working on the same issues in France. The challenge for us is to be able not only to design the hardware product, but also to develop the AI and set up the associated cloud infrastructure!

Here are some other ways this can be achieved:

Real-time Health Monitoring:
Wearables: Equip railway workers with wearables that monitor vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, and fatigue levels.
AI: Use AI to analyze this data in real-time to detect signs of fatigue, stress, or health issues, alerting the worker and the control center to take preventive action.

Geofencing and Location Tracking:
Wearables: Use GPS-enabled wearables to track the location of railway workers.
AI: Implement geofencing to create virtual safety zones around hazardous areas. AI can alert workers and supervisors if someone enters a dangerous zone, helping prevent accidents.

Collision Avoidance:
– Wearables: Equip wearables with sensors that detect proximity to moving trains or other hazards.
– AI: AI can process data from these sensors to warn workers of approaching trains or vehicles, reducing the risk of collisions.

Fall Detection and Response:
– Wearables: Incorporate accelerometers and gyroscopes in wearables to detect falls or unusual movements.
– AI: AI algorithms can analyze this data to differentiate between normal movements and accidents, triggering immediate alerts for emergency response if a fall is detected.

Environmental Monitoring:
Wearables: Provide wearables with sensors to monitor environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and exposure to harmful gases.
AI: AI can analyze these environmental data to identify unsafe conditions, alerting workers and management to take necessary actions.

By integrating wearables with AI, railway systems can significantly enhance safety measures, providing proactive and real-time solutions to protect workers and passengers.
