MUNICH, DE – Deep tech AI scale-up Konux is quietly revolutionizing transportation on German railways with its machine learning and IoT technologies. The company is building a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business powered by proprietary sensing hardware and AI to drive predictive maintenance in railway infrastructure.

German Railways Capturing Real-Time Data

The Munich-based company aims to add intelligence to fixed rails and upgrade railway networks by capturing real-time data and using AI algorithms. This comes at a time when governments and railway operators are seeking to digitize networks and adopt new technologies to meet the rising demand for train travel and reduce carbon footprints.

Dual Approach

Konux's technology provides railway operators with predictive maintenance insights through an accessible software interface, enabling smarter decision-making around maintenance and reducing service downtime and delays. Konux's AI + IoT dual approach also supports German railways with business intelligence on network traffic, usage, and scheduling. By optimizing rail operations through data-driven decisions, Konux aims to unlock unrealized capacity and contribute to meeting global climate goals.

Data-driven Decision-making

The company's robust, track-mounted sensors capture ground-level data, which is fed into AI models to estimate the condition and potential failures of railway components. Konux is focused on being an AI company that drives intelligent rail running by empowering operators with network visibility and data-driven decision-making capabilities. With its technology, Konux aims to transform rail networks and enhance sustainability by maximizing capacity without the need for physical expansion.
