Approach

This solution can be placed in a strategic location and learn the vibrations of healthy railways in the field over various periods of time, thanks to incremental learning capabilities. The solution can then detect any sign of malfunctioning with a high level of accuracy, so maintenance teams can intervene before any major failures. This is achievable thanks to machine learning algorithms embedded in an STM32 microcontroller, which can communicate thanks to sub-GHz radio embedded on the same chip.
