AI-powered Robot in the railway industry is introduced by Central Railway of New Delhi in order to make trains safe by getting rid of the human mistake. Images and videos of the under-gears of trains will be captured by the robot and then sent to a technician for maintenance and fixing if needed.

The robot is known as Undergear Surveillance Through Artificial Intelligence Assisted Droid or USTAAD. It is equipped with an HD camera to supervise parts of the train and a WiFi transmitter to deliver data in real time. The HD camera rotates 320 degrees on X-axis and 130 degrees on the Y axis and is able to cover the most vision of the under-gear parts. Moreover, the robot can also recognize the sound of a flat tire.

The engineers can see these videos on the big screen as well as record them. The camera of the robot can be rotated in any direction as per command given by the engineers”.

He added: "He can also zoom on the spot in case of any doubt. It is equipped with LED flood light and able to capture the videos in low light as well as in dark mode. By use of this robot the chances of a mistake and any deficiency overlooked by human error.”
