Bane Nor is testing out an app that is supposed to notify them if repairs are needed. The goal is for the faults to be addressed before they lead to delays and traffic stops.
“The app is in use and is constantly being adapted to monitor larger parts of the railway. This will benefit travelers,” Executive Vice President Sverre Kjenne in Bane Nor noted in a press release.
In practice, sensors trigger alarms and warn of errors. Bane Nor’s employees then look at which components need to be replaced or repaired. There are alerts in the app, which in turn trigger a work order for on-duty professionals.
The new app is being tested across large parts of the country, but there is extra pressure on the stretch between Oslo S and Bestum – which is located near Lysaker.
“In this area, most trains affect traffic flow. If we can prevent mistakes here, it would mean a lot to many people,” Kjenne added.
